Ponderosa has certainly been making the rounds since they got to town a few days ago. They hit up Grimey’s last night for a pretty special in-store, and that is the perfect place for them to support the release of their newest release Pool Party. They also got a spot on Lightning 100’s Indie Underground last night. All this being said, they have been on the radar since Paste dubbed them a Best of What’s Next back in 2011. Have a peak at the video “Black Hill Smoke” from Pool Party below, and Paste is streaming that new record here.
The fun for tonight doesn’t stop there. It’s like a Paste party. Our old pals Vinyl Thief are coming in for support on that one, and that is possibly ironic or possibly coincidental given their recent acknowledgement by Paste as a “Tennessee Band You Should Listen To Now”. For those of you that were wondering, they did hit their Kickstarter goal, so we can expect a “big boy” record from them soon. In the meantime, you can have another listen to that EP Rebel Hill below.
Things gets started around 9pm with Athens band New Madrid. I don’t know much about them, but we can listen to that player below together. You can grab your $10 tickets here, and get out to see some live music tonight!
