Check Yo Ponytail Announces 2014 Lineup
The famous LA multimedia open-genre musical event series Check Yo Ponytail is hitting the road. The fourth annual CYP tour will feature electronica duo the Presets, rappers Le1f and Antwon, DJ Franki Chan, and singer Chela. The gang will kick things off at the Gothic Theatre in Denver on October 26, and then head on to shows in Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal. They’ll hit Brooklyn, for a show at Warsaw, on Halloween. After that, it’s on to DC’s 9:30 Club, before heading on a run through the South — playing shows in Atlanta, Nashville and New Orleans. The group will play a couple shows in Texas, as well performances in Albuerque and Las Vegas, before making to the West Coast, taking the stages in San Francisco and San Diego, and then closing out the tour on CYP’s home turf at Los Angeles’ Regent Theatre on November 15.
First started in 2006 (although there was a period of inactivity) by IHEARTCOMIX, Check Yo Ponytail has since evolved into a monthly can’t-miss event in the LA music scene blending a wide variety of musical genres and mixed media. Organizers launched their first North American tour in 2011. Fans can get a sneak preview of this year’s performers via a bittorent bundle packed with a plethora of files of the artists’ audio and video releases.
