Lately there seems to be a collective of musicians in town armed with turn tables, synths and an ear for catchy hooks ready to grab Seattle by the throat and scream “dance, white kids, dance!” Add up-and-comers PonyHomie to that list. The keyboard, bass and drum combo play it on the edgy electric tip with nods to 80’s Wave influences and inspiration from acts like Ghostland Observatory, She Wants Revenge and TV on the Radio. Also on this crazy Comet bill is New Zealand’s third most popular folk rock artist, Jake Nannery, who may have a problem keeping the PonyHomie crowd around for his mellow acoustic set. With The Next Door Neighbors, The Yes Pleases, Jake Nannery. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
