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.
Tune in at 10AM EDT, Saturday June 27, hope to see you there!
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!

The long-awaited schedule for Homefest has finally appeared, and it looks packed!
Things get started Thursday night, with a Homefest Kickoff featuring a personal favorite, Funk You. Pigeons will then play a set, and Angus Leslie (of Sex on Toast) will close things out.
Friday we get started with some workshops (including Manny’s, which is always a favorite), and then Chalk Dinosaur gets us started with the music. Kendall Street Company and Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers are up after that. Pigeons will be playing two sets (including the “Funk EP” set) starting at 8, with a “Domie Retrospective” during set break. Dizgo and Cycles round out the night.
Saturday starts off a little earlier with a bunch of fun workshops, classes, and a Flock dance party. The music portion of the evening begins with some solo/side-project stuff (Ben Plays Piano, Puremotion, and Schwa), followed by YAM YAM, LITZ, and Kitchen Dwellers. Then before Pigeons get started at 8, there will be the premiere of the “Yo Soy Fiesta” music video! After Pigeons second set, Eggy and Mungion close out the fest.
All in all, it looks to be a fun weekend with great music! I’m looking forward to a bunch of the workshops, and hopefully getting to virtually hang out with the flock!
Single day passes are now available as well as full weekend passes, at homefest.us
Sorry for the late notice, but tonight at 8PM ET, all four members of the band will be live on Live for Live Music’s Facebook Page, discussing all things Homefest, and new music!
Pigeons has just announced (via Facebook) that to celebrate the 10th anniversary or their debut album Funk E.P., they will be playing the album in its entirety as one of their five sets this weekend during Homefest!
Reminder: Stream passes and merch are available here
Pigeons just released the full lineup for their online festival, Homefest. It includes some great names, and looks like it’s going to be a blast!

Right about now, we should all be setting up our campsites on Marvin’s Mountaintop and getting ready for a magical weekend of music. Unfortunately, that’s obviously not happening. But maybe some special free streams would help a little?
This weekend, Pigeons will be presenting two special free streams… on Friday 5/15 at 8PM ET they will be showing the famous Funk E 63 Set from 4/15/18 in Port City Music Hall in Portland, ME (known as such because Funk E Zekiel was the only song played for the entire 63-minute set). Saturday (also at 8PM ET) they will be showing their New Years StEve show from 12/31/18 at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, PA (featuring Casey Russell from Magic Beans and the West End Blend Horns).
You can watch along live on the Pigeons Facebook page.
The “Live From Out There” series that we enjoyed over the last few weeks has just rolled out their lineup for the next 4 weeks. There’s lots of new names on here, and tons of shows worth checking out. Of course, Pigeons will be involved. From the looks of the announcement graphic, they’ll be showing a new set the weekend of May 22, and archival sets the following two weekends. It’s also worth noting that the streams are moving to a new platform at Livexlive.com (formerly Slacker Radio).
