Black Taxi w/ Ponychase & Scale Model
BLACK TAXI is one of NYC's most prominent live acts, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their style has been described varyingly as "grit-pop" or "dance punk", and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious. BLACK TAXI songs can be heard on radio stations from Maine to California, accompany hit TV shows, provide the soundtrack for film, and hit the airwaves on commercial airlines. Their music video "Shoeshine" found a success of it's own as an Official Nominee for the Webby Awards. Their most recent video "Hand" debuted on AOL Music and 2012's "We Don't Know Any Better" streamed on Spinner for a week following the release.

Scale Model | 9:00 PM
Scale Model is an indie rock/pop band based in Nashville, TN. They combine complex instrumental structure with unique, catchy vocal melodies to create a sound that transcends the staples of pop.

"Scale Model melds a meek collab of '70s power pop with '80s new wave. With tunes ranging from outright catchy to rather hummable, the female-fronted quartet’s humble presence is counter-pointed with a whirlwind of fuzz, synths and melody."

Ponychase | 10:00 PM
In the beginning, Ponychase was the pseudonym under which Jordan Caress recorded a series of home demos. These demos didn't quite fit into what had come to be associated with her name based on her work with Americana band Korean is Asian, or an acoustic, ambient solo record. She wondered if she could even find like-minded musicians in Nashville to help her bring this dreamy, earnest synth pop to life. She serendipitously met Beth Cameron, of the beloved Nashville band Forget Cassettes, who had just returned to Nashville after a brief stint in Chicago. After an exchange of demos and favorite records, Cameron, a talented singer/songwriter and guitarist, was on board. Jordan enlisted her talented brother Alex Caress, to play synths, and electronic drummer Brian Siskind (co-producer of Caress's 2008 EP), thus creating a foursome bound by blood and a long musical history. more >>>
