Dr. Ponie Medicine Ponie=The Deli Magazine's CD of the month

hey everyone! dr. ponie medicine ponie got a really fun review in the delimagazine online :) check it out:

South Philly’s Dangerous Ponies, a queer and allied eight-piece band led by Chrissy Tashjian (The Bee Team, The March Hare), have been trotting their way through 2009. In March they toured to SXSW’s GAYbiGAYGAY Festival and in September released their debut EP, Dr. Ponie Medicine Ponie, recorded at Headroom Studios and now available on Punk Rock Payroll. Both onstage and in the studio, Dangerous Ponies channel the energy of best friends, whose inventive songwriting and kaleidoscope of instruments mixes ‘60s lo-fi pop with Animal Collective’s experimental fizz. Giddy up!

Dr. Ponie Medicine Ponie bubbles like Dangerous Ponies’ live show, opening with a magnetic intro before dropping into the danceable guitar and drum grooves of “When You’re in Town.” This serenade to a returning lover (when you’re around it’s always better) ends in true Dangerous Ponies fashion with a high-spirited group sing-along (cry cry cry if you want to/try try try if you can/but I know that we’ll all be friends in the end.) The bass line on “That” creeps in like The Zombies “Time of the Season,” followed by the summery “Not Now! Not Ever!” whose chorus of “Woo Hoos!” are meant for road tripping. And forget the ex when you’ve got your friends to sing along with, or so goes the carefree breakup anthem “I Really Don’t Mind” (when the birds and bees look down on me that’s fine/so much for making me cry/I won’t shed a tear.) “Honey Trap” twists and turns from waltz to punk and promises to turn out the dance floor (grab my hips and shake your ass/you know I love to watch you.) And all of Dr. Ponie Medicine Ponie’s lovers, exes, and friends reunite on the final sparkler, “All’s Well that Ends with a Dance Party.” - Jaime Pannone


hey everyone! the 75:24 tape compilation is out and it is HOT check it:

cassette compilation!!!!

hey everyone! so danny(boys and sex), and jeremy(band name) live in a great warehouse with a bunch of other rad people (peter,joe,kyle,marshal, kat, greg) called big mamas warehouse. Big mamas warehouse throws shows, has a beautiful recording studio called headroom (where we recorded our EP), and an in house screen printing press. all of these people are in great bands, like boys and sex, peter and craig, algernon cadwallader, band name, and kyle is in dangerous ponies. So danny had the idea to put together a compilation of in house bands, bands that are good friends that have played at the house, and great bands that are good friends with the house or bands in it. This is an awesome way to promote musical community, and there is going to be a great release show for the cassette compilation, featuring ALGERNON CADWALLADER, BOYS AND SEX, DANGEROUS PONIES, HOP ALONG QUEEN ANSLIES, and BANDNAME. We will be selling them at the cassette release and also at our shows. hopefully if this goes well for danny and the bands it will turn into a compilation of 7 inches of all sorts of things like b-sides and rare takes HOPEFULLY recorded at head room they're in house studio. so here are some of the graphics designed by greg (bandname)

do you ever get scared?

when i found out the beatles albums were getting re-mastered, i'm not going to lie... i was a bit freaked out. i thought to myself 'what could they possibly do?' it sounds so good, so full, so perfect, so warm. but i heard it, and they didn't rob it of the warm tone that i adore so much. i mean i'm not expert, human sound memory isn't very long, but just take a listen to the beginning of the old version. stop it then immediately start the other one, so good.

old version

hello loves! so... we have a crush, on punk rock payroll... and wouldn't you know the feeling is mutual. So we are going to be working with them for a while, going on a few dates, talking about boundaries, and they will be putting out our self title full length this summer WOHOOO.

for those of you that don't know anything about punk rock payroll, they rule. Awesome people doing awesome things for awesome reasons. and we are getting involved, and are very excited about it.

The other bands on the label are the extraordinaires, kill you in the face, and lux perpetua. We are having this swell PRP label show case at kungfu necktie on sunday the 8th of november. Now KFN is a really sweet venue, but not the largest, so for those of you that want to be there try and get your tickets as soon as possible, because we want some ponie love in the place.

what people have to say... dear reader

hey y'all tour was a blast! so many awesome kids came out and we had such a swell time. people have been saying some awesome stuff check it out:

Delivering a sun-shiny, beatlesque brand of organic indie rock, Dangerous Ponies bring it all to the table. Although they are traveling with only 5 of their 8 members, the show was still quite effective, blending pop sensibility, solid musicianship and infectious melody with glitter, dancing, tambourines, face paint, heart-shaped guitars, sideways ponytails, you name it! The band is on tour in support of their new EP ‘Doctor Ponie, Medicine Ponie’, and is working hard at bringing a dance party to a town near you

Flailing arms, swinging heads, and feet that want nothing to do with the ground. Band members are dancing in the crowd, the tambourines are ferocious, and everybody’s screaming the chorus. I’m at the Baltimore stop on the Dangerous Ponies tour, and I’m one of these music-crazed partygoers.

This kind of communal party concert experience is Dangerous Ponies’ signature style. With a rotating group of eight members slamming on three guitars, drums, a bass, and an assortment of tambourine, cymbal, and synth-playing hype people, having fun just seems to come naturally to this Philadelphia-based band.


this was a blurb about an awesome sugartown show we played at tritone:

The Ponies alone are reason to attend; their debut Dr. Ponie, Medicine Ponie (Punk Rock Payroll) dropped earlier this month, and is every bit the ebullient crêpe-paper-and-balloon party we imagined when we hipped you to them back in the spring.

SO tour so far has been a blast, for reals. The EP release was AMAZING thanks so much to all of the incredible people that came out and danced and sang and got silly. get billy. it was a whole lot of fun :)

so heres the run down:
NY: crazy dance party warehouse fun. AMAZING vegan dinner beforehand, good beers and people afterwards, who could ask for more?
OLNEYVILLE: cool space, some really sweet people... some very serious hardcore kids :)
MAINE: i may be convinced the nicest people in the world live here. bangarang is an incredible queer house that hosted the show at another co-0p down the road. great bbq, an amazing kid named evan.... who was the mini version of our evan, one mister E bernerd. stayed overnight in portsmouth where i would like to say the best breakfast in the world lives. it lives at a place called the friendly toast, and it's called the ole miss. oh em gee.
PROVIDENCE: AS220 is a really great space. it's really well run, they have an art gallery, dark rooms, and a built in taco joint. WOOOOWZERS.
BOSTON: fish n chips
CONNECTICUT: we played an AMAZING after party for a trans equality play about queer and transgender people in the bible. The space was beautiful, as was the cause. everyone was so kind and we met some really nice folks.
HARRISBURG: we stayed at the wolverines folks house for three days we played once in york which was a wild good time, and once in wilkesbarre which was incredible because the kids there know whatsup and they always come out and have a blast :). most important of all when we were there i got a case of the death sick and we watched all of WIZARD PEOPLE DEAR READER, which is a fully narrated version of harry potter through the eyes of comedian brad neely, i dare you to not laugh:


DC: lost my voice dont want to talk about it
CHARLOTTESVILLE: found my voice!!! I THINK!!! staying with an incredibly great and talented band called the astronomers.
they play great music, and they have a really really super beautiful house tucked inside of a really beautiful place :), the show at the tea bazaar was a BLAST and we have made some good friends. today we are headed to GBORO.

chris says:pod people and shit oh yeah, beer attack

person appreciation day #1

christina theodoro

we have sooo much fun

this is how i feel most of the time

not in any way related to medicine just in life in general. But its fucking hilarious.

in other fronts i've been thinking alot about people and how we relate to the things we own, and how sometimes form follows function, and other times people can make function follow form in incredible ways.

MY BACK PACK: i would like to make it known that my back is a multi-functional piece of equiptment. it services me in many ways. it is my portable trashcan, my portable library, my portable mohabe pack, a portable drug store, a portable healing kit. it has many forms and functions and it is just a few pieces of canvas artfully sewn together.

when i was thinking about our relationship to material things i kept thinking of my favorite passage from the tao te ching:

A wheel has spokes,
but it rotates around a hollow center.

A pot is made out of clay or glass,
but you keep things in the empty space inside.

A house is made out of wood or brick,
but you live in the space between the walls.

We work with something,
but we use nothing.

the never ending universal crisis

Peace demands solutions, but we never reach living solutions; we only work toward them. A fixed solution is, by definition, a dead solution. The trouble with peace is that it tends to punish mistakes instead of rewarding brilliance.

okay so...

i thought that was all the joanna newsom that i needed to post today but i was wrong. The last time i was really into her i was going through a period in my life of falling in love really hard so i have alot of love for her, but i feel like this song is... beautiful it can fit many moods as long as they're mellow.

and if thats not enough... her sweetheart is bill callahan, otherwise known as smog who is nothing less than brilliant, even if he's not your style (how perfect is that????)

his most popular:

i was riding its back, when it used to ride me.

oh animal collective....

primal, intricate, and in all due respects... strangely pop

this video is sooo fucking good, the song is even better:

this is interesting just to hear the voice without the "collective":

if you hang out on south careful

so lately i've known two people that got arrested for open container violations, and the cops where really really really reaching to even charge them with that.

Then the other night when i was leaving moms they were pulling people out of the bar and other bars on that strip and just trying to egg them on and put them in cuffs... i didn't really see any reason. So... i think they are trying to meet a quota, or someones coming down on them, so they are causing problems for no damn reason. Just a fair warning... if your hanging out on south street, be careful.

i took this on my phone

every damn bike cop on south street harassing one girl...

so... i went to barns and noble today to pick up the 2nd book in the dune series (slowly pushes glasses back up to the bridge of her nose), and i picked up this sweet book for jacob called thats good thats bad. The plot is so/so but the illustrations are SOOOO MUCH FUN... they are like quirky and silly, and totally hysterical.

here's one of them, however i don't think it does david catrow (the illustrator) any justice:

A good place to start

so... since i highly dislike blogging on myspace, and livejournal just doesn't cut it, i've officially become a blogger. This is interesting for me, i always thought to be a blogger one must be the owner of many self help books, a child, a business, be an artist or at least have alot of shit talking to do (for instance d-listed). Then i realized that i do own alot of self help books, i nanny a child, having a band is practically a business and i can talk just as much shit as anyone else.... if not so much more. I also realized that having a blog is a good way to network and communicate in our highly expanding technological world. So here i am. HI. this blog will be used for a variety of things, and will double as a dangerous ponies center for keeping the world updated. (

this one goes out to all the pretty girls...
