DOWNLOAD: Ponytail - Celebrate The Body Electric (It Came From An Angel) (MP3)

Ponytail @ the Bell House (more by Jonny Leather)

Ponytail, currently touring Europe, will be playing a bunch of shows at SXSW in Austin this year. After that no proper tour has been announced yet, but they do have a scheduled show in Philadelphia in March, one in Spain for the Primavera Sound Festival in May, and an April 25th show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale at noon.

Pitchfork.TV recently recorded Ponytail playing in a Queens Laundromat..

Live entertainment is provided by Baltimore spazz-rockers Ponytail, who rip through characteristically energetic versions of "Late for School" and "7 Souls" (both from Ice Cream Spiritual) while surrounded by spinning dryers. We've seen people behaving like the band's mighty vocalist Molly Siegel in a laundromat before, but they're usually just there to keep warm, and more often than not they wind up being wrestled to the ground and forcibly ejected by New York's finest. That's rock'n'roll for you.
Those videos and all tour dates below...

I don't know. They're fun, but ain't no way they're worth $13 (plus potential fees)

I don't know about you, but I won't pay money to listen to Fraggle rock.

Definitely worth 13 bucks, in my opinion.

I find the singer totally devoid of any musicality, but the band can play.

Let's get some facts straight.

1. The drummer was born in Baltimore.
2. Charcoal trick? Um, she was dressed up like a lil' woman version of me, the best player in the NFL.
3. "Weak and forced." You have no fucking clue.
4. I didn't kill anyone, but I am about to if I don't see you motha fucka's at the show. And yes, I will sign autographs.
5. Ponytail is the best live band playing today. You won't stop showing those grills when you see this band. Solid date material too.
6. Don't fucking think I am signing to the Goddamn Jets. Baltimore all the way.

Again, anyone who wants to front I'll be at the Ponytail show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

What time is it?

Ray Ray
