Over the weekend of May 15-17, The Current hosted Sounds Like Home: a virtual festival of Minnesota music. You can find all the performances archived on The Current's Facebook page, and we're also sharing the archived sessions one by one on YouTube. Thanks to the Minnesota Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, which allowed us to compensate artists for their performances.

Kiss the Tiger are known for their aptly sharp-toothed rock sound. Since their 2016 self-titled debut, the Minneapolis band have become a draw on stages across the Twin Cities with riveting singer Meghan Kriedler and a pounding, righteous rhythm. Their catalog deepened with last year's follow-up Let Me Bleed, and during the coronavirus pandemic their music has taken yet another turn, as they demonstrated during their single-song, drop-the-mic, black-and-white set for Sounds Like Home.

Alone in a kitchen with just an acoustic guitar heard off-camera, Kreidler draws on the chops she's built in her second career as one of Minnesota's most acclaimed young stage actors. After delivering a monologue, she sits down with a glass of wine and sings a powerful new song, "Grown Ass Woman."
