Scott Miller of The Loud Family and Game Theory has some nice things to say about Jon, “Conversations” and “Lady Sweet” here:
Jon Auer didn’t take a day off from crafting great music in the mid-2000s; his break-out Big Star moment (read on) only barely surpasses this Posies return to form, whose unhurried stroll up perilous baroque scales and back to meaty rock are an immense favorite of everyone in my household. I must have listened to this song a hundred times by now and it never gets old.
The Posies full band will be performing “Frosting On The Beater” live for the first time in the US this summer – they’ll be at Brooklyn’s Bell House on June 12th.
Tickets are available now on TicketWeb.
Jon will be playing two short shows at the Tribeca/ASCAP Music Lounge May 3rd and 4th. Go here for more info: http://www.tribecafilmfestival.org/tff-ep-ascap.html
Jon will also be playing a full length show the Union Hall in Park Slope, Brooklyn on May 5th. Go here and scroll down for details: http://www.unionhallny.com/events/index.php
