Posies Pop

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s mind-blowing to realize that The Posies got their start in 1987, when core members Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow were just teens. The two are the creative collaborators behind the pop brilliance that fans have followed all these years – and newer fans have been introduced to through recent album reissues like Dear 23, absolute must-have Frosting On the Beater (today’s Austin Music Minute features the track “Solar Sister” from that album) and the tumultuous 1996 angst-ridden Amazing Disgrace.

Following this afternoon’s acoustic set at Waterloo Records, The Posies hit the stage tonight at Empire Control Room, 611 E. 7th St. Two fantastic Austin-based bands, A. Sinclair and Poly Action, start out the evening right. Doors open at 8 p.m. Don’t miss out.
