The Posies stopped by The Hamilton this past Saturday, celebrating their 30th Anniversary as a band; however, the way these guys rocked on stage, you would have thought it was their first year. The Posies went non-stop throughout the night starting off strong with everyone’s favorite Posies song, “Dream All Day.” Very few audience members were sitting at the mostly seated venue, and everyone crowded into the tiny standing space in front of the stage. There were a lot of laughs, a lot of guitars, and a lot of jumping around on stage; it was evident that this band was having just as much fun as attendees were.
Opening the evening, the crowd was treated to a special “musical performance, reading” by Chris Stamey in support of his new book, A Spy in the House of Loud. He captivated the audience with excerpts from his book telling stories of his musical career adventures. Baltimore’s own Thrushes followed with their dreamy, shoegaze melodies, which got the audience in the mood for the headlining act. Photos/write-up: Shantel Mitchell Breen
