Watch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Grateful Dead Sandwich From Their Debut At The Capitol Theatre [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgIn late-January, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong made their debut at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, which also marked the band’s first-ever sold-out show at the historic venue. The two-set performance featured a number of heavy-hitters, as well as guest appearances from Twiddle’s Mihali Savoulidis and the West End Blend horns.A highlight of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s first set at their debut at The Cap came at the end of the set, as the quartet closed things out with an ambitious “Poseidon” sandwich, with a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World” tossed in the middle. Honoring the Dead was a fitting tribute,  as the iconic band made The Capitol Theatre their home throughout the years. The cover wasn’t without some sly lyrical updates from guitarist Greg Ormont, who threw in “Wake up to find out that you are the size of a squirrel” during the anthemic chorus–a nod to the historic theatre’s fuzzy mascot.Today, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has shared pro-shot video of their “Poseidon” > “Eyes Of The World” > “Poseidon” sandwich, which you can watch and enjoy below:Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – “Poseidon” > “Eyes Of The World” > “Poseidon” (Pro-Shot Video)[Video: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong]Pigeons Playing Ping Pong continues their winter tour this weekend with a show tonight at Grand Rapids, MI’s The Intersection (2/16).
