'Pony Face' and a full hoofin’ field of talent riding into The Gearin

Saturday 4th August brings an awestriking music line-up to The Gearin featuring Melbourne headliner’s Pony Face with special guests Lazy Colts, along with the Blue Mountains’ local vocal legend Sarah Humphreys. Don’t miss out! Trott over to The Gearin and check out the stable of show ponies.

From the horse’s mouth!

Pony Face are currently one of the most revered and beloved bands in the Melbourne music scene. Their songs are mesmerising and immersive: creating layers of sonic electric guitar textures around deep driving bass grooves, with echoes from the Badlands. With the recent addition of ARIA awarding winning guitarist/producer Shane O'Mara, the band has a dazzling energy that captivates both intimate rooms and festival stages. These four unhurried explorers of sound look for light in the dark, quiet corners of song. "Deja Vu" received "Album of the Week" from both SMH and The Age.

Straddling the divide between blissful and brooding, Pony Face take listeners on an aural journey down a highway that links the crystalline intimacy of Sparklehorse, the dark rock noir of Rowland S Howard and the uniquely Australian feel of Dirty Three.


"... gorgeous tones ... Pony Face's now instantly recognisable style... No, we haven't seen this before."★★★★ – Sydney Morning Herald / The Age.
"The groove is in the spaces in between. They allow the music to breathe with possibilities, their supple songs insinuate themselves into the mind, their playing fuses them with the imagination. They are so much more than the sum of their parts." – Stephen Walker, RRR FM.

++ Special Guests Lazy Colts

Turning their back on the stripped back acoustic approach of previous incarnations, for their full-band debut the Lazy Colts have opted for brooding, cinematic landscapes, explosive drums and unhinged sonic textures assisted by the incomparable talents of Canadian mastermind Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre).

Earning their stripes playing Sydney's pub scene tirelessly Lazy Colts are ready to return to the stage in support of their new tunes.

++ Special Blue Mountains guest Sarah Humphreys

“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys' beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.” – Kasey Chambers.
