The Posies at The State Room
Doors 7 | Show 8
This is a milestone year for the Posies, fronted by Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer. The band began its career exactly 30 years prior by releasing a home-recorded cassette called "Failure", which to their complete surprise became an instant favorite around the Northwest, earning them critical accolades, radio airplay, and major label interest all in a very short time.
The band went on to sign with Geffen records where they were labelmates with Nirvana and Sonic Youth, and steadily built a following around the world via their infectious hooks and furious live shows.
To take this anniversary celebration around the globe, the Posies, who have had a few lineup changes over the years (always based around the founding duo of Auer and Stringfellow) will be on tour as the 1992-1994 lineup that made "Frosting on the Beater", their breakthrough album — Jon and Ken will be complemented by drummer Mike Musburger and bassist Dave Fox. It’s been almost a quarter century since this quartet has been on the road, and recent warm-up shows have been as explosive as those played by the twentysomethings of yore. Catch the band on tour this spring in North America, this summer at festivals, and this fall in Europe — their time is now, again.
