Saturday 6/2

This year's Music in the Zoo series kicks off a bit early to accommodate one of the biggest names of the season. Canadian songstress Leslie Feist broke through to the mainstream -- and "Sesame Street" -- with her light and catchy 2007 hit "1234," but she still retained many of the hipster music lovers who first heard her singing with Broken Social Scene. This is her first local tour stop behind last year's long-awaited follow-up album, "Metals," a sleepier, more nuanced but often captivating record that landed her another modest hit with "How Come You Never Go There." Her touring band features the gals of Vermont trio Mountain Man, including St. Paul native Alex Sauser- Monnig. Openers the Low Anthem are an elegant, bittersweet Rhode Island folk-rock band reminiscent of her previous opener, Bon Iver. (7:30 p.m. Sat. $47. Minnesota Zoo, 13000 Zoo Blvd., Apple Valley. 1-800-745-3000.)
