Ken Stringfellow (of R.E.M.), the Maldives

ROBERT HAM
9 pm., Wednesday January 23 | $13 advance, $15 day of show.
Mississippi Studios
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
 
[POCKETFUL OF POP] Sartorially speaking, Ken Stringfellow has evolved greatly over the decades, from the spiked leather jacket of his first promo photo with his regular band, the Posies, to the long hair he sported during his time as a member of the reconfigured Big Star to his current dyed-black hair, neckties-with-T-shirts glam look. What hasn’t shifted all this while is his allegiance to the power of pop hooks, songwriting unfettered with ungainly poetics, and his slightly twangy vocals. The complete package is, as ever, on display on Stringfellow’s recently released solo endeavor, the groaningly titled Danzig in the Moonlight
