Imaginary Posse Reunion!

Yep, the "bi-polar pop" of Imaginary Posse will be blasting through the speakers of Mike n' Molly's once more on Saturday, June 23rd, 2007. Listed start time is 8PM, and I'm guessing there'll be some other bands on this bill to join them.

For those who missed out on seeing them back in the early 2000's, Imaginary Posse arose from the ashes of another group, Chuck Moody, that comprised of Joe Donhowe (vocals, gutiars, etc), and future Posse band mates Bob Henne and Kevin Cahill. Imaginary Posse's first album is a sort of electronic sound collage experimental project. This self-titled release came out under Donhowe's own Petrahof label.

He was eventually joined by David Domal (drums), Bob Henne (bass), Brian Robertson (keyboards), Kevin Cahill (guitar) and Deb Domal (backing vocals, etc). This changed the sound of the group exponentially, making it more of an alterna-pop collective. This group self-released an EP titled "32 Chester."

Next up was the full-length album "Previously Unreleased," which is pictured above. This was self-released in 2000 on the Pirtdab Records label. It's the group's most polished effort, and sadly, their last. You can check out a few tracks from that release on their MySpace page, linked above. Kevin and Deb stepped back in their duties over time, and the band added Isaac Hensleigh on guitar. This line-up lasted through the group's demise in early 2002.

At this point, Dave Domal and Brian Robertson went on with Mark Starr to form Some Velvet Morning, Hensleigh started up Solips with one of his brothers, and Bob Henne played in FeED. Donhowe started Emotional Rec Club with Jason Milam, Derek Niedringhaus, and Kevin Cahill. The line up of that band eventually saw Niedringhaus exit, and Aaron McAllister enter on bass with other small variations along the way.

Enough with the history lesson, just go see 'em on the 23rd... they're a blast.

Updates coming...

To say it's been slow around here would be an understatement. However, I'll have some news and reviews up later today or tomorrow on the new Headlights release and my inaugural trip to Seven Saints. And a local band who broke up in 2002 is reuniting for a show this month... any guesses as to who? ;-) I know, and will be sharing the day and venue later.

And thanks to all for the 30,000 views! I wasn't sure that this thing would get beyond a few hundred, so thanks for all the interest. :-)
