The name Zoo Animal will be familiar to those who read our Picked to Click issue this year, as the band came in second place in the 2009 best-new-band poll.

We're excited to have Zoo Animal kick off the live music portion of this weekend's benefit, so be sure to get there in time for their 6:30 set.
Here's a clip of Zoo Animal playing last week at the MPLS.TV Winter Jubliee at the Bedlam:
Keep your eye on the blog -- later today we will be posting all the set times for Saturday's show, tomorrow we will be profiling DJs Jimmy2Times and Mike 2600, and Friday we will have a special video interview with Peter Wolf Crier. Buy your tickets in advance from the First Ave website or local First Ave ticket outlets.
