Poney, Wailin' Storms, Dosmalés, Heavy Looks

  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Poney formed in Wausau in 2005 and gradually became one of the best-loved heavy bands in Wisconsin, harnessing the ferocity of hardcore but also gamely plunging into the prog-tinged far reaches of metal—tendencies that went hand-in-hand on the 2010 album Seamyth, based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem "The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner." The band has been laying pretty low since the release of 2013's Rorschach, with drummer/vocalist Ben Brooks and guitarist/bassist Tyler Spatz living in Madison and starting up the punk band No Hoax. But they've been at work on a new album, tentatively titled Pagan Nouveau, and plan to play all the tracks from it at this show. They'll share the bill here with tumultuous North Carolina post-punk outfit Wailin' Storms, Madison doom duo Dosmalés, and Madison power-pop outfit Heavy Looks. —Scott Gordon
