Check Out: Check Yo’ Ponytail 2 mixtapes (CoS Premiere)


    Most people give crap to Monday, and deservedly so. Who wants to go back to work and/or school and mourn the passing of yet another weekend? But when it comes right down to it, Tuesday might just suck more in the long run. At least with Monday, we’ve all known it sucked since we were kids (thanks Garfield!) Tuesday, on the other hand, is just as bad, yet it perpetuates the myth that being one day closer to Friday is soooo much better. Well, it ain’t.

    So, in a way to win back the day that breaks even Robert Smith’s heart, the good folks at Iheartcomix, the Media Contender, The Echoplex, and L.A. Record are holding the next edition of their monthly musical extravaganza Check Yo’ Ponytail 2 today. Featuring The Go! Team, Hottub, Juiceboxx, DJ Haul, and Franki Chan, the event promises to be a crazy good way to make Tuesday actually mean something fun. But before you throw on your undersized leather jacket and neon-colored kicks, we here at CoS are happy to premiere two exclusive mixtapes by The Go! Team and Hottub and Jaysonik.

    The first offering is organized by The Go! Team and features nearly 30 amazing tracks from well-known and beloved acts, including My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, Deerhoof, Ennio Morricone, Mark Mothersbaugh, and more. The other, a 22-track compilation from Hottub and Jaysonik, reads like a who’s who of dance musicians and DJs: MDNR, Banbarra, The RAH Band, and the aforementioned Hottub and Jaysonik are all included.


    Below, check out the mixtapes in all their glory. The show goes down tonight at The Echoplex; tix are $15 and available via TicketWeb.
