Stereogum Does CMJ: New Young Pony Club @ Studio B, Brooklyn 10/18/07 (Modular Showcase)

Our intrepid field reporter Abbey Braden made the long trip from Webster to Studio B to take in a late set with last year’s Band To Watch New Young Pony Club at the Modular Showcase, and left impressed:

“The city that never sleeps? Well prove it to us!” So began New Young Pony Club’s second show in New York City. The last time around it was the dead of winter, lead singer Tai had lost her voice, and we were crammed in an illegally zoned basement for the Modular X-mas party. This time around it was Studio B, and a new wave of fans (thanks to their release of the Fantastic Playroom LP) were prepared for them. Dropping “Get Lucky” and perennial favorite “Ice Cream,” the unexpected Technotronic cover of “Pump Up The Jam” was the cherry on top of the giant sundae that was Thursday night. Then Simian Mobile Disco showed up to DJ, and I passed out in ecstacy.

Technotronic? YouTube, we need you. Jump for more pics.

UPDATE: Abbey to the rescue! Video of “Pump Up The Jam” and “Ice Cream” below…
