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.

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:
