Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcome Hayley Jane In Philadelphia


Baltimore-based jam quartet Pigeons Playing Ping Pong performed in front of capacity crowds at the TLA in Philadelphia on Friday and Saturday nights. The band was joined by vocalist Hayley Jane from opening act Hayley Jane and the Primates for a cover of The Cardigans’ “Lovefool” as part of the second set on Friday.

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong focused on originals from throughout their career over the course of the first night in Philadelphia. The quartet also fit their rendition of the theme song to Ghostbusters into the first set after a run of “Melting Lights” and “Havana.” Friday’s second set began with classics “Porcupine” and “Burning Up My Time” before the four-piece included “Su Casa” within “Condenser.” The jam-filled sequence continued with “Drunk People” > “The Hop” > “F.U.” More of “Drunk People” led into the cover of “Lovefool” led by Hayley Jane. Pigeons, who last performed “Lovefool” in 2016, went on to conclude “Drunk People” before “Penguins” bled into “Funkijam.” The band ended the frame with “Upfunk” and treated fans to an “Avalanche” encore.
