An exceptional night of high energy, quality rock and roll is coming to The Turf Club, July 21. The Posies have been frequent visitors to the Twin Cities over the years and boast a dedicated batch of fans, not only here but all across the globe. Tickets are still available, along with details HERE
The last trip through town was a Turf Club Sell-Out. That time around, the band featured the three albums from the 1990’s that pushed them to the top of the charts. Frosting On The Beater produced their break out hit Dream All Day. It was one of the finest club shows of 2018, with former Husker bassist Greg Norton joining the band on stage for a raucous Husker Du extravaganza for an encore. The audience was a who’s who of local musicians and media people who joined hardcore fans, out to see one of their favorite bands.
This time The Posies are fine tuning a batch of new songs which will comprise a new album to be recorded at Ken Stringfellow’s Seattle recording compound. They are doing a limited number of tour gigs to fine tune the music in front of live audiences. So expect some brand new songs mixed in with the classics.
In support of The Posies, are a pair of the Twin Cities most exciting rock and roll bands. The Shackletons exploded onto the scene in the past couple years and recently showcased at SXSW. They have been banging away with a Minneapolis sound that hearkens back to the heyday of Husker Du, The Replacements and Soul Asylum.
Ryan and Pony, founding members of the highly regarded Melismatics, are set to kick off the festivities. Ryan Smith is also well known as lead guitarist for Soul Asylum. Their new husband and wife project, continues to delight audiences whenever they hit the stage.
Any show that incorporates DJ Jake Rudh is better for it. He’ll be along to help keep the energy rolling.
If high energy, intelligent, power pop/punk is your thing. If bright harmonies over crunchy guitars is up your alley, this one will be a highlight. Don’t snooze. The Turf Club is going to fill up with friends and fans. It promises to be a fun one.
