Dustin Wong at Siren Fest 2010 with Ponytail (more by Jessica Amaya)
Dustin Wong

Ponytail's set at Whartscape this past summer may have been their last:

"Everybody is off going about their own endeavors, which is really exciting, I think. Ken's writing his own music and Molly is on a journey to find her self and Jeremy drums for the Boredoms now. I think its really good, and if by chance the scattered happens to gather again, it would be another interesting experiment."
- [Dustin Wong to Bmore Musically Informed]
And now Dustin Wong (guitarist of Ponytail) is doing just that by preparing to release a solo LP, Infinite Love, on Thrill Jockey on 10/5. The two-song 2LP/2CD is the follow-up to Wong's Let It Go cassette, available for download above, or for purchase.

Wong will play a pair of NYC shows in the coming days, starting with TONIGHT (9/16) at Shea Stadium with Dan Friel, James Ferraro, Black Actor, and Gamut. Then two days later (9/18), Wong is on board for the Last Supper Festival at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn alongside a ton of other artists. Full festival details are below.

If you can't make it out to either show, roll the dice and hope for the best, maybe you can get Dustin Wong to play a private show for you:

Dustin Wong will perform a series of a dozen one-on-one concerts for fans and friends via Skype video chat. These "Infi-Net Love" performances will be available to the winners of twelve golden tickets.... Tickets for the "Infi-Net Love" personal concerts will be included in randomly-chosen copies of the Infinite Love album preordered from the Thrill Jockey web-store. A very limited number of tickets will also be available from Bmoremusic.net, Other Music, and more to be announced shortly. The private concerts will be set up with the winners by Thrill Jockey and will take place during the month of December.
For more on that contest, head to the Thrill Jockey site.

Dan Friel, who is playing tonight's show at Shea, also plays a solo show tomorrow (9/17) at St Mary's Church in Brooklyn with Band of Bicycles, Lame Drivers as part of "Bike-In-Movie Night" which will be showing the bicy-classic, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Parts & Labor (Dan's band) are scheduled to play in the near future as well; look for them at Glasslands on 10/15 with Shy Child, Bunnies, and Adult Themes.

All tour dates, details on the Last Supper Festival, and some Dustin Wong videos, below....

This will be the only possitive comment about Ponytail. The rest of the comments will be adressing how much they hate that little boy singer guy.

Not true. I hated EVERYTHING about them. What a shitty shitty band.

Posted by soysalami | September 16, 2010 2:52 PM

SHOCKER!

brooklyn vegan commenters "hate" something

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 2:54 PM

Ponytail's broken up? That's the best news I've heard all day...

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:02 PM

Dear You Guys,

I hate everything about the Brooklyn Vegan comment crew.

Conversing with you people is what hell must be like.

love, the Internet

ponytail were pretty bad.

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:06 PM

yeah Ponytail couldn't hold a candle to Passion Pit or Delta Spirit or Tegan and Sara or whatevs. Them bands are REAL TALENT looks like

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:06 PM

ponytail were damn good, ya jackasses

not that anybody gives a rats ass what BV comments page has to say about anything

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:09 PM

ok so you "hate" the singer in Ponytail, though she's pretty similar style (and less annoying than) the singer in Deerhoof.

And then there are "singers" like the jailbait girl in Crystal Castles, who just stands there and pantomimes what she thinks singing looks like on a microphone that's not even turned on.

then you got the Feists and Cat Powers and Joana Newsoms and the rest who sing like wounded 8 year old girls.

but instead you have a problem with a passionate powerful gal who sings in a unique way? could it be that you just don't like women who express themselves creatively rather than posing and cooing like like sexy little girls?

You don't have to like Passion Pit ,Delta Spirit or Tegan and Sara to not like Ponytail

Ponytail were god awful... and I like The Boredoms and crazy noise bands etc.. Ponytail were just wankers and the lead singer reminded me of Geri from Facts of Life

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:24 PM

awwwwww yeaaaaaaaa!

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2010 3:30 PM

awful? whether you like the band or not "awful" is overstating your case.

Taylor Swift is awful, Ponytail is just a competent band you don't care for. every member in that band could play circles around your average indie popper.

No need to insult them for existing, or to get personal about it. Unless you just want to be an asshole... and since your forum is Brooklyn Vegan comments, I gotta presume that's your MO.

Oh thank god it's over!

I'm standing up for Ponytail as well! I saw them three times, including the Williamsburg waterfront in 2009 and Sirenfest in 2010. They were a great outdoor "festival" band. A nice change of pace from more straightforward bands.

I also saw them headline a show at Bell House. Even without the summer sun and intoxication, I really enjoyed them just as much.

Sorry to hear they broke up, but I'll keep an eye on their different projects.

brooklyn vegan comments, the safe refuge for the cowardly embittered crank.

it shoulda been you dude, your band shoulda gotten the accolades and the slots playing on festivals! it's just not fair that they got somewhere and you didn't. why don't you dis them anonymously on the internet! that'll make it all right.

sob :(

wow...
even if they had a male lead singer (which isn't far off already) that "sang" like that they'd still suck... gender has absolutely nothing to do with it.. thats way too much "expressing" if you ask me...and not very creatively..

saw dustin wong live before, it's awesome. anyone know the official line-up times tonight?

Posted by annie momus | September 16, 2010 4:17 PM

9-9.30 Black Actor
9.30-10 The Gamut
10-10.30 Dustin Wong
10.30-11 Dan Friel
11-11.30 James Ferraro

Posted by John Haterson | September 16, 2010 4:26 PM

can we hold off on Ponytail bashing for a moment to notice that this contest is kind of weird?

"These "Infi-Net Love" performances will be available to the winners of twelve golden tickets.... Tickets for the "Infi-Net Love" personal concerts will be included in randomly-chosen copies of the Infinite Love album preordered from the Thrill Jockey web-store. "

wtf?

just as i get past the weird pics and actually listen to this band and figure out theyre a pretty cool OOIOO-y (not as good, i know, settle down BVers) they break up.

Taylor Swift is NOT awful! Also, this whole time I thought the Ponytail singer was a dude. If only I could go back in time with my newfound knowledge & re-judge them.

Posted by streetdude | September 16, 2010 7:54 PM

taylor swift > ponytail

i challenge anyone in ponytail to write a song that's half as good as love story. can't be done.

Nearly any band sounds good if you listen to them while eating hummus.

RIP. Great fuckin' band, all four of em, always brought so much energy to live shows, knew how to get people moving, dancing, happy.

Posted by Twigs | September 16, 2010 8:27 PM

Ponytail was pretty fresh. The rest of the bands on the Stillwell stage elicited head nods and foot taps.

Ponytail induced crowd surfing. Hard to say how they did it, but they definitely raised the energy level.

Loved the opening number:

@ Anonymous (that's most of you, so specifically, art noise Sept 17).

So what would you give birth to?

Hi: I', searching for the articles Asimov wrote on pre-determination of events. First he "proved" how a drop of water by falling will set in motion a series of events that cannot be change.
Then he wrote showing the fallacy and how surprised he was that people bought into it. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
