Well, the Posies, Big Star and R.E.M. musician is coming back to the Bay area and playing an equally low-key spaces.
“...by popular demand, I am doing a North American Tour this fall presenting my 2001 album Touched and more,” Stringfellow, 50, wrote on Twitter, “playing mostly non-venue spaces (many of which are secret shows), mostly with real pianos.”
One of those non-venue spaces is the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, which plays host to Stringfellow on October 4. Tickets are on sale now and will cost $25.
The St. Pete gig is one of three Florida shows including an October 3 date in Miami and an October 5 show in Pensacola.
Touched, of course, is the album (released on 9/11) that Stringfellow recorded when the Posies went on temporary hiatus, and it’s definitely riddled with retro organ.
Just listen to “Spanish Waltz” below and see what we mean. Read a pretty sweet interview with Stringfellow via Orlando Weekly.
