PRESS RELEASE: The Posies to play a rare NYC show performing FROSTING ON THE BEATER + more!

Figured you Posies fans would dig this:

PhotobucketPower-pop pioneers, The Posies, were goaded into playing their classic 1993 masterpiece, FROSTING ON THE BEATER, earlier last year in Spain, by zealous fans and promoters. Now, New York City fans will have their time to rejoice as the band fly in for a special one off performance on June 12th at Brooklyn's Bell House.

The band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1987 and quickly signed to Geffen Records, releasing three full length records. "Dream All Day" from FOTB went to #4 on the modern rock chart in 1993. The band contributed to such soundtracks as Reality Bites, Austin Powers, and the Basketball Diaries. Their popularity continues, their most recent release, 2005's Every Kind Of Light and recent tours of Japan and Spain.

Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer, the founding members, have kept busy with Big Star and R.E.M. and other projects and rarely play as the Posies. This will mark the full band's first NYC show in years and the band will play Frosting On The Beater in its entirety plus many more...

Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, March 31 at noon.
