Americana band The Show Ponies will storm the Crystal Bay Club Casino Red Room stage on Saturday, March 4. The group’s latest studio LP, “How It All Goes Down,” dropped on Jan. 20 earlier this year and was released on the heels of 2013’s “We’re Not Lost” and the 2014 EP “Run for Your Life.”

“From the driving intro of ‘The Time It Takes’ to the final fiddle note of the title track, ‘How It All Goes Down’ is a folksy reflection on the end of the world. Drawing from journeys through heartache, exhaustion and joy in their time both at home and on the road, The Show Ponies look at doomsday through a largely hopeful lens,” states a press release from Red Boot PR.

The five-member band is comprised of vocalist and bassist Clayton Chaney, vocalist and banjo player Andi Carder, vocalist and guitarist Jason Harris, fiddle player Philip Glenn and drummer Kevin Brown.

“When Arkansas native Chaney came across Houston, Texas’ Harris in 2006 in their Los Angeles college choir, it laid the groundwork for a beautiful, musical friendship. Through collaborations with Harris, Chaney soon met and began to jam with fellow Houstonian Carder, whose sassy songstress leanings paired impeccably with his down-home lyrical style.

“Once Harris heard the duo’s dynamic, he pulled in fellow college music mavens Brown and Glenn in 2011, and The Show Ponies soon hit their stride,” continues the release.

The gig, which begins at 10 p.m. on North Shore, is free to attend.
