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.
