On the Scene: Brendan Benson and The Posies

Posted By on Tue, Nov 23, 2010 at 11:03 AM

Completing a trifecta of The Posies and Brendan Benson-related coverage in the paper and blog - local photographer extraordinaire (and power-pop aficionado) Thomas Hibdon attended both acts' appearances in town at Ardent Studios and Minglewood Hall on Sunday, took some fairly amazing shots, and was willing to share.
