POND at Fremantle Prison, Perth

Come do the Jailhouse (Psych) Rock!

POND have officially been found guilty…of making some of most killer tracks to have come out of the last few years! YVO and Laneway Presents have decided to put this band behind bars…

Two W.A. icons will come together as Nick Allbrook and his boys (Jay Watson, Joe

Ryan, and Jamie Terry) roll back home to the Wild West of Australia, for a night of awesome live music (and plenty of beers!), under the stars at the convict-era establishment that is the Fremantle Prison.

TICKETS ON SALE THURSDAY, JULY 6, 10AM, FROM TICKETBOOTH.COM.AU

Of all the venues you could catch POND live, Fremantle Prison would be pretty high on the list of fascinating ones! Everyone whose stepped foot on its grounds will tell you that its a slightly unnerving experience… The iconic, history-rich Australian landmark is not only one of Australia’s Top 10 landmarks, but rumoured to be one of our nation’s most haunted locations.

POND’s hugely entertaining music spans introspective psych, eccentric pop, electrifying rock’n’roll, and servings of far outness, and has won them praise from the New York Times, Pitchfork and NME, the latter calling them “hottest band in the world.” And it’s widely known that they have one of the loosest, strongest live shows around, having blown away crowds on tour with The Arctic Monkeys, MGMT and Flaming Lips, and at Primavera Spain, at UK festival Field Day, Coachella, South by Southwest. Back home they’ve blitzed Laneway Festival, Splendour In The Grass and so many more.

For their Fremantle prison performance, the band will play tracks from their killer new madcap LP, The Weather (which Pitchfork has hailed as “a document of a band knocking loudly on the door of greatness”) and and of course delve deep into their impressive back-catalogue.

~Supports~
Start summer early with the garage sweetness of Sydney-based four-piece Body Type (50% Perth girls originally) whose signature scuzzy lo-fi pop sound has been winning hearts left, right and centre on the east coast, with the band recently performing at Secret Garden Festival, Electric Lady and more.

Charismatic West Australian rapper REEF PRINCE dishes up his weird and wonderful "alien trap rap" to keep you on your toes.

We can’t guarantee you’ll see a ghost at POND, but can say without a doubt, that if you miss this psychedelic gig… it will haunt you for years to come!
