Since we last reported on The Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Wintour 2016, the Pigeons announced more dates AND the upcoming release of their new album, Pleasure. Once the tour ends, the Pigeons get ready for Domefest, their festival in Bedford PA at the end of May.
Of note on the tour are the two shows with moe. at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore (February 26-27). PPPP will also join forces along the way with The Main Squeeze, Aqueous and The Fritz.
The Baltimore quartet plays “high-energy psychedelic funk,” but that barely begins to describe their outrageous stage performance. Their over-the-top stage antics are matched by their superb musical chops. PPPP are: Scrambled Greg Ormont – vocals, guitar; Jeremy Schon – guitar, vocals; Ben Carrey – bassics, vocals; Alex Petropulos – drums, electronics; and Manny Moonbeams – flashy lights.
The initial artist lineup for Domefest was recently released, with Big Something, Splintered Sunlight (Dead tribute), Aqueous, ELM, Broccoli Samurai, Especial, Mister F, Shwizz, and Litz, with many more bands and artists to be announced.
You may also have seen the fine offer they extended to Martin Shkreli, that shrewd businessman who, among other manipulative adventures, attempted unsuccessfully to acquire the rights to Kanye West’s new album.
Their summer calendar is starting to fill up, with Disc Jam and Camp Barefoot already confirmed. Learn more about Pigeons Playing Ping Pong on tour on their official website. Find more information about Domefest on the festival’s official Facebook page.
