Music Tonight: Fort Wilson Riot

MPMF.11 faves play a freebie tonight with like-minded Zoo Animal at MOTR

Though they hail from Minneapolis, Indie Pop duo Fort Wilson Riot list its "hometown" as "Our dear van Casandra," a nod to the pair's nomadic life as a D.I.Y. touring entity. Buzzed about after their appearance at last year's MidPoint Music Festival, the twosome (Amy Hager on vocals, keyboard, guitar and trumpet and Jacob Mullis on vocals, guitar and keyboards) returns to Cincinnati tonight for a free show at MOTR Pub. FWR has been noted for its dynamic approach, shifting around from Indie Folk to Garage Rock to Dance Pop and beyond. Here's FWR's latest single, the Electro groovin' "For All the Little Things," taken from its split EP release with Minneapolis' Phantom Tails.<a href="http://fortwilsonriot.bandcamp.com/album/generation-complex-ep">Generation Complex EP by Fort Wilson Riot</a>The show kicks off at 10 p.m. with openers Zoo Animal, stirring vocalist Holly Newsom's self-described "Minimalist Grunge Pop with heart" group, also from the Twin Cities and inspired by the likes of Julee Cruise, Keren Ann and another "Newsom," the harp-rockin' Joanna. Here's the gauzy, woozy Zoo Animal track "Laying and Lying" from the recent seven-song EP Departure.<a href="http://zooanimal.bandcamp.com/track/laying-and-lying">Laying and Lying by Zoo Animal</a>
