What: The Dead Pigeons (Mpls) with special guest Luke Callen
When: Sept 4, 2016
Cost: $10 suggested donation
Would a loyal drinking crowd at a small dive bar take notice of some guy singing original acoustic music for tips on a Tuesday night? The answer is yes, they would listen, and eventually, other players with a common love of music would also listen, join in, and form what is now The Dead Pigeons.
The Dead Pigeons have been touring, picking, and perfecting their sound for the past 6 years. Players and instruments have been added and taken away, but at the core, The Pigeons remain steady – a group of dedicated homegrown musicians with a raw, foot stomping, infectious sound that has captivated fans throughout the country.
This season the band has a calendar full of great stops all around the Midwest. Our debut album, “Even if I Knew,” is available to purchase through this site as well as at our shows. We hope to have our second album done by the fall!

“West Bank folk rockers The Dead Pigeons specialize in a back-to-basics breed of Americana. The group is led by Drew Peterson, formerly of 40WattBulb, who has historically been a supporter of big-time Minnesota folk and bluegrass acts like Charlie Parr and Trampled by Turtles. ”
