Darius Minwalla Memorial This Sunday In Seattle

On June 14th, Neumos in Seattle will be hosting a memorial for Darius Minwalla. Ken Stringfellow, Jon Auer, Matt Harris, and Joe Skyward will be present, though we don’t yet know who will be performing and when. All proceeds will benefit the Minwalla family.

Also, Hugh Cornwell was interviewed by Sean Nelson last week about Darius, who played drums in Hugh’s band for the past few years. You can read that interview here on The Stranger.

A cause of death has still not been determined.

Ken To Tour Australia; Reveals Posies To Re-Issue First 4 Records

Ken Stringfellow was interviewed by Sydney Unleashed ahead of his Australian tour next month, and had news regarding the first 4 Posies records:

For news, we will see over the next year the re-issue of the Posies first four albums with expanded content, quite a bit never before heard and that’s *after* we released a 4-CD box set of outtakes in 2000. We found even *more* stuff. Plus the albums will get remastered, pressed on vinyl, etc.

If you follow Ken’s blog, you already know that he and Jon Auer are recording new Posies songs.

Dates for Ken’s Australian tour:

April 11 – KS solo, Petersham Bowling Club, Sydney AUSTRALIA
April 13 — KS solo, Grace Darling Hotel, Melbourne AUSTRALIA
April 16 — Coronet Blue (KS on keyboards), the Vanguard, Sydney AUSTRALIA
