We’ve had one hell of a year at Check Yo Ponytail. So many great shows with ridiculous memories and tons of friends both new and old. In January, we had Fool’s Gold takeover on my birthday, followed by Skrillex and friends the day after. In February, Com Truise headlined his first Check Yo Ponytail and Das Racist brought a rooster to the club. In March, we took on SXSW by throwing SUPER PARTY, our own radical festival with a bit of help from Mad Decent and Fool’s Gold. In April, James Ferraro brought a motorcycle on stage.


In June, we curated our own stage at Electric Forest in Michigan. In July, Big Freedia brought her Nola Bounce to LA for Independence Day; and later that month, the punk and rap crowds united for Trash Talk and Spaceghostpurrp.

August brought the Very Best and LA local, Tokimonsta to the Echoplex stage followed by some much needed rest in September. We got based in October with Riff Raff & Kitty Pryde, followed by our radical 2 Year Anniversary party in November with Andrew W.K., Icona Pop, and Diamond Rings, and a suprise from Skrillex.

Thanksgiving week brought the more vibed out side of Odd Future with The Internet; and as the holidays started to set in, we were graced by a candlelit performance from How to Dress Well. To top off the year on our final show, our good friends Trash Talk joined forces with Odd Future’s, Mellowhype, to give the punk and rap kids exactly what they wanted…one last chance to rage before the apocalypse.

Before we share some more of our favorite moments of 2012, all of us at CYP2 would like to thank each and every one of you that attended any one of our many shows throughout the year. You are the reason we are able to continue putting on shows that feature eccentric, inspiring, and sometimes legendary artists that we are fortunate enough to present. With that said, here are a few of our favorite moments from throughout the year.
