Pony Time, Deathlist

This event is in the past
Wed., May 25, 9:30 p.m. 2016
Bunk Bar Buckman (Portland)
While most of the Seattle punk bands getting attention lately teeter into noise-rock while still maintaining more traditional pop song structures, Pony Time dive into the deep end of jagged anti-pop. Their guitars are similar to the simple fuzzy chords of bands like Dude York, Mommy Long Legs, and Tacocat, but Stacy Peck's drum fills are almost unheard of in pop music, drawing from metal and hardcore just as much as from their self-proclaimed "disco-garage." Pony Time's 2013 full-length Go Find Your Own explores a range of topics: riot grrrls ("Kathleen Hanna"), "Lesbian Mayor," and silly "Hippy Shit." But Pony Time is at their best on the two-minute suspenseful track "Hex on You," which sounds like putting tin foil in a microwave. Even though you know it's going to erupt into flames, the slow crackling buildup still makes the "when" surprising. CAMERON CROWELL
