Zoo Front, The Furors at Best Video Performance Space
Sponsored by: Best Video Film & Cultural Center
Indie rock band Zoo Front and rock ‘n’ roll duo The Furors play Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, May 11. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
The last couple of years have been busy ones for Zoo Front. Their CD Red Stereo Dress marked the beginning of a new era for the band, with Nancie Tief making her singing and songwriting debut. Adding to the fun, they adopted a new working philosophy they call ABM – “ambient background mischief.” The idea is to add a subliminal track to each song that somehow fills out the sound in a way that defies definition.
The personnel is Ed Ekendu (Guitar), Nancie Tief (Guitar), Lisa Tonner (Drums) and Ju Dee Luna (bass).
Comprised of guitarist Derek Holcomb and drummer Tom Dans—Holcomb sings lead and Dans harmonizes—The Furors have been playing together for over three decades. They have self-released numerous vinyl 45s, a vinyl LP and several compact discs. The Furors’ music is joyful, quirky three-minute pop, like a cross between They Might Be Giants and early British Invasion rock ‘n’ roll.
