Spotlights – Pigeons Playing Ping Pong & Emo Night Brooklyn

Opening Up A Can Of Worms
by Mike Greenblatt

The Baltimore psychedelic alternative funk electronica jam band known as Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will land with Pizazz (their new CD) Friday, Nov. 24 with Flamingosis opening at Brooklyn Steel. Singer Greg Ormont warns AQ faithful that the band is “like a spring-loaded can of worms and the contents fly out in every direction like fireworks.” New drummer, Alex Petropulos, adds heft to an already intense live experience. While their Maryland cult — called The Flock — grows, lead guitarist Jeremy Schon seems to be reaching Guitar Hero status.

So buy a ticket, grab drink, and revel in all its emo glory!
