Watch: Greg Norton joins The Posies onstage in St. Paul to blast through Hüsker Dü classics

Power-pop favorites The Posies currently are out on a 30th anniversary tour, and the band’s stop in St. Paul, Minn., on Tuesday night featured an extra treat: The group brought Hüsker Dü bassist Greg Norton onstage during the encore to rip through four of that band’s classics.

With Norton on bass, The Posies’ Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow led the group through performances of “Green Eyes,” “These Important Years,” “Makes No Sense At All” and “Sorry Somehow.” The band then continued its encore at the Turf Club by playing its own 1996 song “Grant Hart,” about the Hüskers’ late drummer/singer/songwriter.

The Posies – touring with the classic Frosting on the Beater-era lineup of Auer, Stringfellow, Dave Fox and Mike Musburger – continue their 30th anniversary summer trek with an appearance tonight at Summerfest in Milwaukee. Check out the band’s website for full tour dates and ticketing details.

  2. Seattle’s best band. Frosting on the Beater still crushes Nevermind like a grape.
