CONTEST – Ponys/Black Lips @ Lee's Palace – March 29, 2007
Everyone wanted a pony as a kid, very few actually got one. Now if, as someone of legal drinking age, you still want a little horse to ride around the yard, to groom and to name “Blossom”, that’s your business, but if you’d rather get a dose of Chicagoan fuzzed-out psych rock with a 90s college rock vibe, then I can help you out. The Ponys will be at Lee’s Palace this Thursday evening with The Black Lips and Action Makes and courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away.
To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with your full name in the body and “I want a Pony” in the subject line. Show’s coming up so this is a quick one – the contest will close at midnight, March 27 – that’s tonight.
I caught only a tiny bit of The Ponys’ set at Hot Freaks at SxSW but their live rock abilities were more than evident. Their new album Turn The Lights Out came out last week and they also just did a Daytrotter session and interview, so check those out if you need more convincing. The Black Lips are supposed to be nutso live, as well, so there’s that too. And the free. Can’t underestimate the value of free.
