After launching its first US tour in late 2011, Check Yo Ponytail returns to serial party form at the Echoplex in Los Angeles in January. Danny Brown headlines a Fool’s Gold invasion of the regular event on 1/24, while Skrillex and Diplo (who would follow each other to the ends of the Earth) scheduled an of-course-it’s-sold-out party on the 25th (though door sales are rumored, and resale tickets are still available – be sure to sort by price).
We’re not sure what qualifies it as a sequel, but here’s Check Yo Ponytail 2’s primo schedule for the start of 2012:
1/10: Canblaster, Myd, Panteros666, Sam Tiba
1/24: Fool’s Gold Take Over w/ Danny Brown, Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B
1/25: Skrillex, Diplo, 12th Planet (sold out)
2/7: Com Truise, Teengirl Fantasy, Soft Metals, Greenhorse
The inaugural Check Yo Ponytail tour was well-documented. You can visit the Red Bull Music Academy to hear full sets from tourfellows Spank Rock, Pictureplane and Big Freedia. And of course, we had some fun of our own – check out our Spank Rock interview backstage at the Mezzanine from CYP’s night in San Francisco:
