Triple Crown Winners

So while the city's eye was turned towards the M's & Redwalls in looking for the potential breakout of '04, it seems to be the Ponys who have gathered the most momentum at mid-year.

Following up favorable reviews in Rolling Stone, Spin & Mojo, today finds them the beneficiary of Pitchfork's blessing.

While it's probably a little late to catch a plane to see them rocking the Netherlands tonight, don't fret. They're opening for Fiery Furnaces on the 17th at Metro. And there is still time to decide on a road trip to the Siren Music Festival which is free and takes place 7/17 on Coney Island (and also features, among others, Mission of Burma, Death Cab For Cutie, The Thermals, TV On The Radio, The Constantines and Har Mar Superstar).
