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 video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
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!
