Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Announces Free Live Stream Partnership With Relix

first_imgFans can expect to see and hear plenty of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong on The Relix Channel in the coming months. The popular jam band announced their plans on Thursday to partner exclusively with Relix Magazine‘s live video platform to present a series of upcoming live concert streams to their fans around the country, starting tomorrow with the band’s sold-out show at Chicago, IL’s Concord Music Hall. The live streams won’t cost anything for viewers, however, there will be a digital “tip jar” for fans to show their support.“We’re honored and thrilled to be teaming up with Relix and couches everywhere,” Pigeons’ singer/guitarist Greg Ormont said in a statement about the partnership. “Now, if you can’t make it to the show, you can flock out at home. You better believe I’m gonna find you in the lens!”Related: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcomes Members Of The Fritz, Jams ‘Jungle Book’ Style In Asheville According to the announcement, the new partnership is the first of its kind between an artist and a media outlet. As streaming-based technology continues to grow in both capability and popularity, more artists–including performers outside of just the jam realm–are looking to utilize all new avenues of reaching audiences and consumers with live-stream concert experiences. Both Pigeons and Relix are promising to make their streaming series a frequent occurrence, so fans should expect to see plenty of shows from the band’s ongoing winter and spring tours being broadcasted on the online channel even more often in the coming months.Neither the band or Relix revealed if their partnership will only remain active throughout the band’s ongoing tour, or if this is a long-term relationship. Either way, one can’t help but wonder if exclusive streaming agreements will start to become a new trend across the live entertainment landscape.The band’s next show is tonight (Thursday) at The Bluebird in Bloomington, IN with support from Mungion. The tour is scheduled to continue throughout the rest of winter and into the spring months with upcoming shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and a pair of late-night gigs in New Orleans during Jazz Fest come early May. Fans can head over to the band’s website for the full listing of upcoming shows and ticket options. Fans should also keep an eye out for future streaming announcements from the band now they plan on broadcasting more shows via The Relix Channel.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Tour Dates:2/14 – Bloomington, IN – The Bluebird *2/15 – Chicago, IL – Concord Music Hall2/16 – Grand Rapids, MI – The Intersection *3/22 – Cleveland, OH – House Of Blues *3/28 – Harrisburg, PA – Capitol Room **3/29 – Stroudsburg, PA – Sherman Theater **3/30 – Albany, NY – Jupiter Hall **4/4 – Burlington, VT – Higher Ground Ballroom &4/5 – Burlington, VT – Higher Ground Ballroom **4/6 – Portland, ME – The State Theatre **4/12 – Rochester, NY – Anthology **4/13 – Rochester, NY – Anthology %4/24 – Columbia, MO – Blue Note ~4/25 – Urbana, IL – Canopy ~4/26 – Milwaukee, WI – Turner Hall Ballroom ~4/27 – Minneapolis, MN – Varsity Theater ~4/28 – Omaha, NE – Slowdown ~5/2 – Morrison, CO – Red Rocks Amphitheatre !5/3 & 5/4 – New Orleans, LA – Mardi Gras World Ballroom #5/16 – 5/18 – Masontown, WV – Domefest* w/ Mungion** w/ Cycles& w/ Goose% w/ Kitchen Dwellers~ w/ Twiddle! w/ Twiddle & Kitchen Dwellers# w/ The String Cheese IncidentView All Tour Dateslast_img read more
