The Secret Note reviews Chastity Belt & Pony Time’s show in Milwaukee!
Lazy-i previews the Chastity Belt & Pony Time show in Omaha:
House of Loom is hosting a very cool indie/garage show featuring PNW band Chastity Belt. The band’s latest album, No Regrets, carries on the spirit of ’90s college indie (i.e. early Liz Phair, etc.) and is pretty fantastic. Also on the bill is Seattle garage duo Pony Time (Per Se Records).
Newcity Chicago features Pony Time and recommends their show at Township with Chastity Belt:
Beetham’s willingness to poke fun at both himself and rock-bro sexism impressed me, and I was equally impressed with Pony Time’s bouncy, buzzy single “Lori + Judy.” As a two-piece, Pony Time manages to use the minimalism to their advantage with short songs that play up Stacy Peck’s pulsing drum work and Beetham’s nasal, sneering vocals, like a Fred Schneider who can actually sing.

Boise Weekly previews Pony Time and Chastity Belt’s upcoming show at The Neurolux:
The novelty of the White Stripes was in the amount of sound the duo produced. The staying power of the band came from that sound: raw and visceral, but still totally listenable. Seattle-based duo Pony Time follows that same formula, creating layered garage-y punk tunes that belie the band’s small membership. The tracks on 2013’s Go Find Your Own probably sound recorded much as they do live—up-tempo tunes pummelling the listener with singer-guitarist-bassist Luke Beetham’s sing-shout style and drummer Stacy Peck’s machine-gun fire percussion. If you don’t at least tap your feet when listening to Pony Time, check your pulse.
