Sky-Pony to Play Mercury Lounge, 3/16

On March 16, Brooklyn-based band Sky-Pony will hit the stage at Mercury Lounge, with opening band Toys and Tiny Instruments. Since its formation in 2012, Sky-Pony has garnered a cult following for sets that merge rock show and theatrical event. The Wall Street Journal describes Sky-Pony as "a 1960s girl group on crack - tight, fierce, hilarious and out of their minds." Lauren Worsham (who's also currently appearing in Broadway's Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder) fronts the group, supported by her husband, Obie Award winning bandleader/songwriter Kyle Jarrow.

It all happens on Sunday March 16 at Mercury Lounge (217 E Houston St, NYC). It's an early show, with opening band Toys and Tiny Instruments at 7pm and Sky-Pony at 8pm. Tickets are $10. More info at http://www.mercuryloungenyc.com/event/482613-sky-pony-new-york. The theme of the show is LUCK... after all, St. Patrick's Day is the day after the show.

Sky-Pony is a Brooklyn based band that serves up lush, lyrical, often cheeky indie-pop with a healthy dose of theatrics. They incorporate costumes, choreography, and projections into their high-energy live shows. Rock concert meets performance art meets burlesque, you might say. Their discography includes two EPs: Say You Love Me Like You Mean It and Raptured Live, both available on itunes. In addition to Worsham and Jarrow, Sky-Pony also features the talents of Kevin Wunderlich, Lizzie O'Hara, Kristine Piacentile, Jessi Suzuki, Perry Silver, Eric Day and David Blasher. More info on the band at http://www.sky-pony.com.

Toys And Tiny Instruments is a 7-piece experimental folk rock band that has a self explanatory name. High energy shows, plus quirky and catchy songs make this band a must-see. "I wanted to book bands I thought would make people stop and say "hey what is this?" and then say "whoa this is great" Toys And Tiny Instruments was one of the first groups I thought of. " -Bill Pearis, brooklynvegan.com http://toysandtinyinstruments.bandcamp.com/
