KEN STRINGFELLOW
8:30 p.m. Stickyz.

Washington State native Ken Stringfellow has the sort of resume that would be the envy of many, many a scruffy indie-rocker type: Co-founder of a critically adored power-pop act? Check — See Posies, 1989-1998; 2000-present. Stint performing and recording with one of the biggest rock bands in the world? Check — See R.E.M., various tours and albums. Joining one of the greatest and most influential rock bands ever? Check — See Big Star. Career as a producer/mixer/engineer/arranger/studio wizard? Check — See a whole bunch of bands, including Little Rock's own The Alpha Ray. Release lush, adventurous solo albums that are so awesome-sounding and tasteful that it almost hurts? Check — See, most recently, "Danzig in the Moonlight."

The album touches on nearly every facet of pop and rock from the last few decades and does so convincingly and effortlessly. Stringfellow called the album "A culmination of all I have learned and experienced in over 30 years of performing, producing, writing, and conceptualizing music."

This 18-and-older show will be a treat, folks.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
