Check Yo Ponytail 2 is an open-genre, open-format party held monthly at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. The event has become known for highlighting some of today's top performers, with a few tried and true legacy acts in between. There's no doubt that Check Yo Ponytail 2 has played an integral part in the evolution of the modern music scene, supporting music that challenges the way we think about and enjoy culture in the day to day.
In the past, many of today's progressive artists including Justice, Matt & Kim, Boys Noize, and countless others made their Los Angeles debuts at a Check Yo Ponytail 2 event. CYP2 has since expanded beyond its home at the Echoplex through a series of specially branded events that include parties at SXSW, stage takeovers at Electric Forest, and the CYP Tour, a mobile version of the show that takes the full Check Yo production on the road. The story behind the first CYP Tour, which featured Spank Rock, Big Freedia, The Death Set, Pictureplane, and Franki Chan, has since become the focus of a feature length documentary titled, Get Amongst It, currently slated for a 2014 release.
While the lineups remain an integral part of the show going experience, it's the extended Check Yo Ponytail universe that make the parties "MORE THAN A SHOW" complete with live visuals, original flyer artwork, collaborative mixtapes, professional photo and video coverage, and online social media interactions that create an experience like no other.
