Tonight (Friday 12/18/20), Pigeons will be streaming their show from Waynesville, NC on 10/24/20 for free on Facebook and YouTube. If you recall, they had a paid stream for that show, but had a lot of technical issues that caused most of us to miss a significant portion of the show. The band confirmed that this is the complete show, with fixed video, so I’m pumped to finally get to see what I missed!
If you didn’t have a chance to catch those smoking-hot Flockbuster shows last weekend, you’re in luck! Pigeons will be rebroadcasting both shows this upcoming weekend (Sat 11/28 and Sun 11/29) at 8PM EST, for free!
They also posted some new clips from this past weekend, check them out!

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!
