Indie rockers on tour
The Posies, known for such Indie hits as “Dream All Day,” “Golden Blunders” and “Solar Sister,” are headed to Fairfield Theatre Company on their 30th anniversary tour. They hit FTC’s StageOne on Thursday, June 14.
The group aims to reissue its classic 1990s albums, “Dear 23,” “Frosting on the Beater” and “Amazing Disgrace.” This world tour (with the “Frosting on the Beater” lineup) is in support of that musical project.
Fronted by Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer, the band began its career by releasing a home-recorded cassette called “Failure,” which became a favorite around the Northwest.
Signed to Geffen Records, the band recorded their second album, “Dear 23,” and toured the U.S. They went on to earn international acclaim with 1991’s “Frosting on the Beater,” and followed it with “Amazing Disgrace.”
Between all of the changes in the ways in which music is shared, these albums have not been readily available for some time now. The band is raising money to reissue its music via a PledgeMusic.com fundraiser, in which it offers everything from clothing to music lessons in exchange for support.
