Come out to the Axe for a fun night of hip music with two bands from afar and two from just down the road! Music genres range from indie folk, to classical-infused dream-pop, to drone music. It is sure to be a unique experience that you won’t want to miss.
If you would rather sit down in a nice building, or happen to fall in love with singer from Pony Girl or Old Cabin at the Axe, don’t worry, there will be a more intimate afternoon acoustic concert on the Sunday following this show. It takes place at the Manning Memorial Chapel, on Sunday, September 20th at 2pm. Suggested donation is $10, and the accompanying act will be local heartthrob Pat Lepoidevin (www.patlepoidevin.bandcamp.com).
Here’s a word from Pony Girl about their new album:
We’re Pony Girl. Because of our six members’ various musical backgrounds, our music is somewhat difficult to pin down to one genre. To give you an idea, some of us have classical degrees, some have played in big band jazz ensembles, and others simply have the love for folk story-telling. All of this combined together creates something I’m proud to call quite unique.
We’ve just finished the production of our sophomore record “Foreign Life” which comes out on November 7th. Our sound and approach to song-writing has definitely evolved since our previous record. We took from all our favorite styles and combined them in a digestible way. We were going for the “Radiohead effect,” where the songs are catchy enough to enjoy in the first listen, but have a second level to them that keeps them interesting in repeated listens.
We’re starting an Ontario-Quebec-Maritimes tour this Saturday, 12th of September. We will be playing almost exclusively material from the new record and will incorporate its imagery and visual themes on stage around us. I’m very excited to start the tour, it’s a passion for me to be both traveling and sharing my art with as many people as possible. Our tour dates as well as our newly released music video for our song “Candy” can be found in this article: http://exclaim.ca/music/article/pony_girl-candy_video
