In case you missed it during the Live From Out There series, Pigeons will be re-broadcasting Set 2 of their 4/3/20 show tonight on their Facebook page at 8PM ET. Their post also teases some big news coming soon…
This morning, Pigeons announced their first non-drive-in show since the pandemic started! They will be playing at South Farms in Morris, CT on Saturday October 10th. It’s a socially-distanced outdoor show where the grounds will be marked in 8’x8′ grids.
Pre-sale has already started (Get the code from their FB post, link below), followed by general on-sale this Friday at 10AM.
Just in time for your drive to Philly (or more likely, your wait to get in), Brad and Thomas have dropped Flock Talk Episode 66! On this episode, they give a rundown of the past couple drive-in shows in NY and MA, with some in depth analysis as well.
Last night, Daze Between (an online festival celebrating Jerry Garcia’s life and legacy) showed some never before seen archival footage from Pigeons. It was a great sequence, check it out! The video should start at the intro.

Do you watch the Frogtown USA video podcast hosted by G. Dad and Brody? If not, tomorrow’s a great day to start! They’re doing a “Pin Makers” episode, and they’ll be joined live via video chat by none other than myself, along with a couple other pin makers I’m sure you’re familiar with. We’re going to talk about the pin-making process, how Covid-19 has impacted the pin market, and of course pin databases, among other things. If you’re into pins, it’s an episode you don’t want to miss.
I’m very happy to announce that Will F. has joined the flockers.net team! He probably easily has the most comprehensive collection of Pigeons merch out there, so who better to help me keep up with it all? In a few short days, he’s added easily over 100 pins and is driving the addition of some new lists here! The Buttons section was just added and will be filled in soon, and we anticipate adding some more sections such as bracelets and slaps.
Big thanks to Will for the work he’s done so far, and I’m really looking forward to everything he’s going to bring to the team!
