Music Around Town

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong/Yosemight

When: Sat., Sept. 12, 10 p.m. 2015

Based out of Baltimore, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have steadily garnered an exciting renown as they tour the region. Psychology builds off their original Funk EP, serving up funky instrumentation with swagger-laden lyrics and confidence. Much of their material alternates between blissed-out groovin’ and, y’know, in-your-face arpeggiating and wanton funk throw downs. The music is kind to all, so come to the show expecting to be welcomed into the band’s tight-knit community. Songs like “F.U.” guarantee a bustling dancefloor, what with theit tendency for tongue-in-cheek humor and shred-tastic solos. “Zydeko” flirts with its namesake musical tradition, while remaining close to the funk pocket that these guys are known for. Among the East Coast, third-tier jam bands (or however you want to classify the scene), these guys are absolutely worth watching closely. (Sandy)
