Jon Auer (US), kjent fra band som The Posies og Big Star, kommer endelig tilbake til Mono torsdag 27.april.
Jon Auer

In addition to being a critically acclaimed solo artist, Jon Auer is the co-founder/singer/songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist of The Posies, one half of art pop duo Dynamo Royale, and was a member of the reformed Big Star for 17 years (until Alex Chilton's untimely passing in 2010). Auer has toured the world over in support of his much-praised solo album Songs From The Year Of Our Demise, a song cycle that illustrates his undeniable knack for combining the highly melodic with the emotionally and psychologically complex, arguably mining more singular and adventurous territory than in any of his work previous. As a solo performer, Auer's one-man show is entrancing and intimately entertaining, songs and stories side by side.

A teenaged Auer recorded and mixed the first Posies' album (Failure) in his parent's house and during his multi-faceted career Auer has produced and/or mix records for the likes of You Am I, Redd Kross, and Spiral Stairs (of Pavement) and the Sub Pop label and many others. Auer also performed on William Shatner's Has Been album (produced by Ben Folds). Former Beatle Ringo Starr even covered one of Auer's compositions ("Golden Blunders") and Auer's haunting "Lady Sweet" (sung by Auer) was the lead track from the Big Star record In Space. Currently residing in France, Auer spent four intensive months touring the US and Europe in 2016 sharing The Posies' latest release (Solid States) and he is prominently featured in the upcoming Big Star movie Thank You Friends: Big Star's Third Live...and More.

- "(Auer) was warm and epic, comfortable; using the venue's gorgeous forum for a handful of just- right, unplugged, solo-singer-songwriter-in-the-stagelight moments. It was mouth-agape, beaming from the front row, pull up your knees to your chest and your sleeves over your hands, 'please don't let it stop' kind of good... he took over his own lyrically adept selection of songs like a true pro, delivering with just the right amount of witty banter, slashing us in half with his well-crafted ache” - THREEIMAGINARYGIRLS.COM

- “Although Jon Auer takes the stage as a solo performer and plays for over an hour-and-a-half, this is easily one of the most dynamic shows this reviewer has seen for a while, the mark of a truly talented and diverse artist. Opening with a divine track from his most recent release Songs From The Year of Our Demise, ?Cemetery Song? begins Auer?s beautifully-designed set list. It?s clear right from the start that the tonality of his voice is even more fluid, smooth and rounded than on the recorded tracks. Throughout the night he shares with us the stories behind a lot of his work...He shares a touching story about Josephine, his estranged grandmother, and ?Bottom of the Bottle?, written about his alcoholic friend, in which he pulls off a stunning a cappella breakdown. Always offering something new at each moment of the performance, Jon disappears to return with a milk crate, which he locates in the middle of the Troubadour for an unplugged number. Jon Auer?s history as a key member of The Posies and Big Star is no secret and he keeps fans happy with a couple of tracks from both bands, closing his four-song encore with The Posies? ?Coming Right Along?. Tonight on display is a musician who has an intricate relationship with composition, performance, guitar playing, vocal talent and all elements of music - just plain brilliant to watch.” - TIMEOFF.COM.AU
