THE POSIES

Rock ‘n’ roll has rarely been as smart, soulful or satisfying than it has in the hands of The Posies. During an on/off career that’s stretched across four decades, the Seattle-rooted outfit, led by musical polymaths Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, have shaped and re-shaped their muse, creating one of the more compelling catalogues in modern pop.

With SOLID STATES (2016), their 8th album, the Posies mark dramatic changes in the lives, the music, the evolution of the band. When the Posies long time drummer, Darius, died suddenly and unexpectedly last year, Posies founding members Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow were devastated. Hard as it was to continue without such a close friend and great musician, the moment called for a reinvention. For now… the idea of the band getting into a room and banging out the music, garage band style, was over. The ideas coming from Jon and Ken were fragile and the moods contemplative. Death, divorce, loss. Even the joys of life are fleeting enough as to be treated with care and respect.

Of course, the Posies still retain their legendary melodic abilities, their trademark vocal harmonies and their lyrical agility. The band has always been exploring, growing. The multiyear gaps between albums are typically spent in countless other projects that bring new skills, sounds, experiences and people to the picture. The band will present the album live in a new format, incorporating laptop elements along with guitars, keyboards and drums. As artists, the band feels it’s their duty to take risks and explore.


THE SHACKLETONS

The Shackletons are a rock band out of the Twin Cities writing and playing songs rooted in the rich influence of the “Minnesota Sound.” The band consists of Colin Campbell (vocals/guitar), his older brother, Cameron (Bass), and younger brother Evan (Drums/miscellaneous screaming). Living a double life as both a knee-buckling indie rock band as well as a stomp-your-foot-through-the-floor blues band, The Shackletons have been generating buzz throughout the Twin Cities and Midwest Region.


RYAN AND PONY

Ryan and Pony is a brand-new project, although these two indie-rockers have been kickin’ around the Minneapolis music scene for years. Whether it be fronting The Melismatics or playing with the likes of Soul Asylum, Mark Mallman, Phil Solem, The Rembrandts, Grant Hart, or Benjamin Cartel they have always brought an energy and passion to the stage and studio that is infectious.


DJ JAKE RUDH

Jake Rudh is both a Minneapolis club and radio DJ hosting “Transmission” the program heard on 89.3 The Current every Thursday night at 10pm. Jake’s worked in music for over 20 years including Capitol Records, NPR and Twin Cities alternative favorites REV 105 and Radio K.
