Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Coming To State Theatre

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday, February 7 at The State Theatre. The band’s 2018 tour will promote its new album, Pizazz. Broccoli Samurai, a name familiar at music festivals across the nation, will also join the group.

Based in Baltimore, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has been together since it formed at the University of Maryland in 2009. While touring all over the country, its fanbase “The Flock” continues to grow. With more than 160,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, this band is certainly on the rise. An association with bands like Phish and The Grateful Dead has also enhanced the group’s career.

As the name suggests, attendees should expect a mix of psychedelic and experimental jams intended to take them to a blissful place. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong creates a positive atmosphere with its high energy and on-stage shenanigans.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. You can purchase yours here.
