Who’s playing Ponderosa 2016? Find out at our 2nd Annual Jean Shorts Lineup Launch Party!

Thursday, May 5th, 2016



For months we’ve been busy listening to the hundreds of artist submissions, spinning a ton of new releases, and finding new band favourites with the goal of curating Ponderosa’s freshest, most fantastic lineup yet. And you know what?

We think we did it.

And we can’t wait to share the great news with you on Friday, May 6, at the Anza Club in Vancouver! Not only do we get to announce the amazing lineup, the party itself has an amazing lineup, including psych-cumbia group LoS Duendes, etherial rockin’ Ponderosa alumni FRANKIE, and playing their first live show ever, electronic R&B trio Other People.




Plus! Parked right out front we’ll have both a food truck AND a sauna bus (it’s exactly what it sounds like), and on the inside, lots of drinks, pals, beats all night from Wensleydale and Cranberry, and us, Kris and Kia, hosting this unlimited freshness all night long.

Finally, in celebration of the hot news and the hot weather, we’ve got our annual jean shorts dress code in full effect, because summer is basically here (also, who wants to be in a sauna bus in pants?). Been stressing about parting ways with that thigh-to-ankle portion of your Levis? We’ll have equal parts scissors and encouragement at the party to chop that denim straight into tan-town.


If last year’s party is any indicator, this one’s bound to really rock.




Doors open at  9 pm. Advance tickets $15 here, which we recommend taking advantage of because the Anza fills up fast, folks.

See you there!
