Where Is My Mind?: Dangerous Ponies’ Chrissy Tashijan

Where Is My Mind?: Dangerous Ponies’ Chrissy Tashijan

When you listen to South Philly’s Dangerous Ponies, it’s a splendid, joyous experience. Their sunbeamy brand of ‘60s pop-infused, gang vocals adorin’ circus masquerade rock is the type that morphs you into a high-octane gale on the dancefloor. And the vibrant collective - consisting of frontwoman Chrissy Tashijan (vox/guitar), her brother Mikey (drums), Evan Bernard (vox/guitar), Chris Baglivo (vox/bass), Kyle Pulley (guitar) and hype-women Sarah Green (keyboard/vox) and Brooks Banker (vox/tambourine)—only intensifies their music on stage, making it hard for your body to resist their high-energy prowess.
With an EP already under their belt, last year’s Dr. Ponie Medicine Ponie, the 7-piece troupe will release their first self-titled full-length on hometown label mainstay Punk Rock Payroll. To support its release, the Ponies will trek across the country for a 25-city tour over the course of October and November, kicking off the ride this Friday, October 15 at Philly AIDS Thrift for their official CD Release Party (they’ll also be doing a run with label mates The Extraordinaires from November 7 - 14). We recently caught up with Chrissy to talk shop about the new record, the Ponies’ colorful personality, and what it means to be a queer-identified troupe in Philly. You can check out the interview here.
