Three guys on a farm somewhere in Virginia share three things: A mom, a dad, and a passion for music. After moving around from band to band, the Carney brothers decided to stick together and formed Pontiak. This trio is all about making psychedelic stoner rock music that is heavy with guitar and slathered in bass— a combination that sounds like Reverend Horton Heat-meets-Karma To Burn. On tour supporting their newest album, Living, Pontiak will be playing at Santos Party House in NYC on May 24 with Arbouretum and Coconuts. Ages 18 and over. $10.
