We are stoked for next Saturday’s Pigeons Playing Ping Pong & Teddy Midnight show at the Gramercy Theatre. With support from Animal Reporters, this is a night of funk and jamtronica awesomeness you do not want to miss. We’ve been told tickets are selling fast, so make sure to cop your pair right here before this bitch sells out. To support the show, we interviewed Pigeons (read it here), and are in the process of wrapping up another one with Teddy Midnight, which will be published soon. To get a taste for what the guys are playing at recent gigs, check out the setlist below, which was performed last night at The Bottleneck in Kansas:
While you wait, make sure to check out Pigeons’ newest album, Pleasure, which was released last Friday on April Fools Day. In short, this album kicks ass. Nothing’s better than the dual guitars of Scrambled Greg and Jeremy Schon, Greg’s powerful vocals, the slaptastic bass of Ben Carey, and the tight drumming of Alex Petropulos. Some of our favorite tracks on the new album include “Whoopie”, “Bad For You,” and “Burning Up My Time.” On “Whoopie,” the guys are joined by the bass trombone / tenor sax duo, The Hornitz, for eight minutes of pure funk bliss. We can’t wait to see which new tracks the band peppers into next weekend’s set. Only time will tell. Make sure to cop the entire album here, and check out the three pre-released singles below.
Just today, somewhat coincidentally, our friend Wiley Griffin (lead guitar, Teddy Midnight) put up a pre-show interview with Pigeons via Teddy TV. The video interview is part of Teddy Midnight’s interview series with members of the jam community, and features an awesome video of Pigeons covering Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” Check it out below, and make sure to subscribe to Teddy TV here. See you next Saturday!
