CONTEST – Pony Up! @ The Silver Dollar – May 14, 2007
I completely lost track of Montreal’s Pony Up! after seeing them in Summer 2004 opening for Camera Obscura – this despite my saying that “I was persuaded enough to pay attention down the line”. Lies lies lies.
But in the interim, they’ve not only stuck around but thrived, signing to a hip(ster) label, releasing their full-length album Make Love To The Judges With Your Eyes last year and touring with the likes of Camera Obscura (again) and The Mountain Goats. Certainly more productive than MY last three years. Anyway, they’re going to be in town on Monday for a show at the Silver Dollar with Forest City Lovers (whom you may remember from this review) and Knock Knock Ginger.
Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away to this show. Entering is fun and easy! Just email me your full name in the body and “Giddy Up Pony Up” in the subject line to contests AT chromewaves.net. This contest will close at midnight, May 11. That is all.
