Indie rock­ers on tour

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - Your Weekend - By Linda Tuc­cio-Koonz

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 PledgeMu­ fundraiser, in which it of­fers ev­ery­thing from cloth­ing to mu­sic lessons in ex­change for sup­port.
