Outside a tucked-away studio off Dexter Avenue, writer, musician and organizer Bree McKenna is talking about the hyperactive punk scene on Capitol Hill, where she is a fixture. One of her bands (TacocaT) is making a music video inside. But right now the story is her other band, Childbirth, the trio McKenna created with members of Pony Time and Chastity Belt. Their debut album “It’s a Girl!” came out last week.

Why choose Pony Time and Chastity Belt for a supergroup?

Block Party countdown Q&A: Pony Time doesn’t dig energy drinks, play power ballads

For a group who claims the two members were united by “almost zero common musical interests and a shared love of South Park,” Pony Time has impressively cohesive lo-fi chemistry. Their songs, which tilt toward the fuzzed-out two-minute end of the musical spectrum, still fall on the sunnier side of punk: Pony Time might make garage music, but it’s not meant to be heard alone in a garage. Their sound is far better suited for the festive CHBP atmosphere. We chatted with drummer Stacy Peck about their upcoming East Coast tour with local rising stars Chastity Belt, and the dire need for a punk rock rendition of a Poison power ballad.

Pony Time plays Capitol Hill Block Party Saturday at 8:45 p.m. on the Cha Cha stage.
