It's officially been 30 years since Jon Auer & Ken Stringfellow, high school buddies from Bellingham WA, recorded and released «Failure», a home recorded, self released cassette that had the improbable fate of landing the band two commercial radio hits and a record deal w the David Geffen Company, where they became labelmates of Sonic Youth, Nirvana & Teenage Fanclub. Now with a legacy of eight critically lauded albums (their latest, «Solid States» was released last year), a loyal population of fans around the globe, and a body of work with such classic alternative/indie anthems as «Dream All Day», «Solar Sister», «Coming Right Along» and many more, the band is still active and looking forward to its fourth decade in music. The band's '90s catalogue is set to be re-released in 2018 by Omnivore Records, and there are plans to start working on a new album soon after. The band has survived the deaths of two longtime members in the last 3 years: bassist Joe Skyward and drummer Darius Minwalla; despite that, they managed to stage a brilliant come back in 2016 with drummer Frankie Siragusa and do several sold out tours doing pop up shows — self-produced concerts in improvised venues and unlikely spaces; indie rock raves, if you will.

For these shows at City Winery, Jon & Ken will perform as they did in their earliest shows — simply, as a duo, letting the intricate blend of their guitars and voices carry the evening. Expect familiar favorites and deep cuts from their entire catalogue, plus the occasional Big Star cover without a doubt (Jon & Ken were part of Big Star's reformed lineup from 1993 until Alex Chilton's 2010 death). Not to be missed, this is the Posies in their most authentic environment.

The band will also host a VIP meet & greet party/performance at soundcheck as a separate ticketed event. For tickets: citywinery.com/boston/the-posies-duo-meet-and-greet-does-not-include-admission-in-the-concert-1-26.html
