Bellingham hometown heroes The Posies are headed to the Neptune Theatre in support of their newest album, Solid States, this Wednesday, November 16. Both the band and the world have been through a lot since The Posies first hit the power pop scene back in 1986. STG Presents the show with special guests Anomie Belle. From STG:
“We’ve had two bandmates die, a divorce and remarriage, a transoceanic move … There’s been good things and difficult things, but nothing is in the same place for us. So it makes sense that this record would sound different from its predecessors.”
“I think it’s our most adventurous record to date,” adds fellow singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Jon Auer, Stringfellow’s longstanding musical partner. “There was the conscious idea to strive for something different from the Posies of past, to use different colors and flavors. That was the plan, but then life had its way with our concepts and schedules, and threw many profound, out-of-the-park curveballs in our direction. By this point, we’d already painted ourselves into a musical corner, which ultimately left us no other option but to figure our way out, bit by bit, wave form by wave form.”
When: Wednesday, November 16, doors at 7pm, show at 8pm
Where: The Neptune Theatre (1303 Northeast 45th St)
Tickets start at $18.50, $73.50 for VIP. All ages.
