The Posies @ Rock Shop

When I heard that they would be releasing 10 tickets to The Posies at the tiny Rock Shop, you know that I was at the front of the line. Tonight they played from their 7th studio album Blood/Candy. The record is slower and more melodic than in previous releases. It unfortunately falls victim to the same problem as their last one where there are 2-3 great hits surrounded by a lot of fluff. However, they played the album with tight precision, and it’s always a pleasure to see Jon Auer and Ken Sttringfellow show off their musical skills. Ken mentioned that his father despite working in NYC was in brooklyn for the first time. “This morning, he had to look up ‘Brooklyn’ and ‘vegan’ in the dictionary,'” Stringfellow said.
