Pigeons Playing Ping Pong made its debut at Atlanta, GA’s famed The Tabernacle on Friday. The high-flying funky Baltimore, MD foursome were joined by Funk You as opening support, as well as welcomed members of the group throughout the show.

Friday’s concert kicked off with a “Henrietta” that was cleverly changed to reference the city of Marietta, just northwest of Atlanta. The amended Pizzaz track segued into “Offshoot” ahead of a “Lowdown” that was also revised to “Hoedown”. Set one carried on with more PPPP classics “Bad For You” and “Somethin’ For Ya” that were played with minimal shenanigans—at least for Pigeons. “Somethin’ For Ya” bled into “Distant Times” before a sandwich of Pink Floyd‘s “Run Like Hell” between two slices of “Hell Yeah” brought the first frame to a close.

Returning to the Tab stage, Pigeons ignited the second set with a pairing of “Kiwi” and “The Liquid”. A jovial “Whoopie” followed prior to “Lost In Line” and a pivotal “Horizon”. This in turn bled into “Whirled”, before Pigeons welcomed the guitar, keyboard, horns, and percussion section of Funk You for a funked-up take on “F.U.”. The rest of Funk You would then file onstage for a transition into Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean” before the paired down lineup wrapped set two with “F.U.”.

The entire cast of characters then took the stage once again for a rendition of Kool & The Gang‘s “Hollywood Swinging” to cap the performance.
