Tastemaker’s Poncho Announce ‘Twenty-Thirteen Party’ To Sample New Acts

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 10, 2012

Inspired by the possibility the future holds, jetpacks and alike, the team from Poncho has declared that 2013 will be time to party.

Poncho is out to prove their self-proclaimed taste-making abilities and have put together a list of some bands and DJs that they are certain will explode in an otherwise unforeseeable future of the world, they then took that list and made it into a lineup for their Twenty-Thirteen Party. Though their previous predictions that “everyone will shave off their eyebrows and dress entirely in tinfoil” might be a little off the mark, they have a good thing going with their talent selection.

The night will include music from a hyper-charismatic, one-man disco Pikatunes alongside the likes of Client Liaison, a classy, 80s Australiana-flavoured, après-skiing outfit. King Gizzard will be tracking down a DJ set in anticipation of their September release as well as the most diverse, most party, most technically proficient DJs in Australia’s ‘indie DJ’ the Smoking Toddlers. The I Oh You DJ’s will be capping off the gig with their unique brand of party stylings few can replicate.

All are welcome on August 17 (that’s 2012) at Melbourne’s The Mercat, to come and prepare for what awaits mankind in the new year. For more info check out the Facebook Event, and Tix are up through Mosh Tix.
