Who the hell is Pony Death Ride?

   We get that alot. If we're asking for your help, we should probably get to know each other a little. We are Pony Death Ride, a comedy-punk rock-cabaret duo from San Diego, CA. We met while playing in other bands, then went nuts and got married. We play shows at burlesque events, caberet shows, and your typical rock n roll joint. Comedy shows too! Here we are in 2011 in Oakland:

We set out earlier this year to record our debut CD, "Kung Fu and Circus", then a crazy thing happened:

We ran out of money. Crap!

So to finish our project, we thought we would enlist you, music lover. The good thing is, everyone who helps fund the project gets a copy of our CD, and if you look at the rewards section, things just get nuts after that. Imagine holding a copy of our CD and telling your friends, "this project wouldn't of happened without my support." Then you can kind of turn your head up in that real cocky sort of way, ya know. Also, for every nice thing you do, the universe allows you to do two bad things as compensation! (universal good to bad ratio not always acurate).

Slow down, folks, we hear you say. "Why help  these guys?" "Why not Jerry's kids?" First of all, who knows where that money even goes. That Jerry Lewis has a sneaky look about him that makes me  uneasy. Funds for our project, on the other hand, go directly to the project. Here's a breakdown:

Finishing up recording and CD mastering:   $500

CD artwork and layout : $200

CD duplication: $300

So you see, every penny is accounted for!

Also, if the goal is not met, we do not get funded a dime and all pledges are returned.

Without you, our projected could not be funded, so we would turn to a life of crime. So thank you in advance for your consideration. Let's be part of this magical, comical journey together! Here's our website for a closer look:

Thank you very much!

Here's some press on us from The Ventura County Times when we played there last year.
