Franki Chan, the local trendsetting impresario behind the notorious Check Yo' Ponytail parties that introduced LA to bands like Justice, Crystal Castles, Spank Rock, Matt & Kim and MEN (featuring JD Samson), is back with Check Yo' Ponytail 2, starting Nov. 23 at the Echoplex.

From the release:

Everything that made Check Yo' Ponytail a defining sound in the Los Angeles (and at times the national) music scene is returning in this newest, next level incarnation. Always one to embrace new talent, party creator Franki Chan says, “CYP2 will remain true to the past, focusing on what's next, while bringing a few tried and true heavyweights every now and again.” The first few weeks of the party will feature performances from CMJ-heavyweights Big Freedia, fuzzed out Subpopers Dum Dum Girls, tropical punkers Abe Vigoda, dancy-dreamscapers Teengirl Fantasy, electro-goth Tobacco (Tom Fec from Black Moth Super Rainbow) and many more!
