On Friday night, Pigeon Playing Ping Pong continued their ongoing winter/spring tour with a performance at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA. The show came on the heels of the band’s visit to the nearby Martin Guitars headquarters in Nazareth, PA earlier that day, where they delivered a full-band acoustic set which was streamed live for fans everywhere to enjoy.
After an opening set from Colorado power trio Cycles, Pigeons took the stage at the packed Stroudsburg theater with a show-opening “Walk Outside”. The set continued with “Skipjack”, followed by a seamless stretch of tunes including “Henrietta”, Pink Floyd‘s “Pigs (Three Different Ones)”, and “Offshoot”. After a spirited rendition of “Fortress”, the band closed out their first of two sets with a high-energy “Spacejam” > “The Hop” > “F.U.”.
Pigeons returned for their second set with a sing-along “Penguins”, followed in quick, segued succession by “Funkijam” and “Moonwalk”. “The Liquid” came next before the band dove into an extended take on “Funk E Zekiel” containing a thoroughly impressive drum solo courtesy of Alex “Gator” Petropulos. Rounding the corner into the show’s home stretch, the band worked through “Bad For You” before moving into a soaring “Horizon” and a memorable “Condenser” that featured a detour through “Su Casa”. Finally, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong closed out their second set with “Doc” before returning to the stage to treat the electrified crowd to a searing “Schwanthem” encore.
