The Monkees

Sure, it seems kinda cute to have the Monkees — a band with an animal name — kick off this year’s Music in the Zoo series. But it won’t be as fun as the Monkees’ rain-interrupted debut at the Minnesota Zoo in 2011 because, sadly, Davy Jones — the cute one in the Pre-Fab Four — died of a heart attack a few months later. While this show will mark the zoo debut of Michael Nesmith (who returned to the reunited group after a long absence), I’m not much of a believer in the Davy-less Monkees. As they did last year at the State Theatre, Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Nesmith will salute Davy and do their best to create nostalgia for those 1960s days of “Last Train to Clarksville” and “Daydream Believer.” Jon Bream
