Throughout their show, the Baltimore-based funk act worked in a number of classic Disney tunes alongside the group’s more typical catalog.With all members of the group dressed as Mickey Mouse in his familiar outfit of red pants and suspenders, black shirts, and mouse ears, Pigeons wasted no time getting to work, opening the show with the Lion King opening and the 20th Century Fox theme and giving a glimpse to fans as to what was in store for the rest of the evening. Mixed in with takes on their own tunes like “Walk Outside”, “King Kong”, and “Something For Ya” were covers of The Lion King’s “Mighty Jungle” (“The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, originally made famous in 1961 by The Tokens), “Hakkunah Matatah”, and “Just Can’t Wait To Be King” in addition to a rendition of Moana’s “Shiny”.For the second set, the band returned first with “Too Long”, a tune off the group’s most recent album Pizazz, and a fan-pleasing rendition of “Poseidon” before a take on “Auld Lange Syne” to start off 2018. Returning to their Disney theme, the group pulled some tunes inspired by Aladdin, including “A Whole New World”, “Arabian Nights”, and Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride”. Housed in a “Horizon” sandwich, the group worked in a cover of Jungle Book’s “Bare Necessities”, which was then followed by covers of “When You Wish Upon A Shooting Star” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and their original new tune “Dawn A New Day”.[Video: Silas Tockey]Rounding out the show, the group used “Schwanthem” as a jumpoff point for a take on Pochahontos’ “Color Of The Wind” before ending the show with a return to “Schwanthem” and “The Liquid”. For Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s encore, the group laid out a standout rendition of “Couldn’t We All” before performing the “Mickey Mouse Club” introduction theme, then finishing out the show in full with a “Zydeco” sandwich featuring “A Tale As Old As Time”.You can check out a full gallery of photos from the show below, courtesy of Phierce Photography.Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Madison Theater | Covington, KY | 12/31/2017Set One: Circle of Life Intro* > 21st Century Fox > Melting Lights Walk Outside > The Lion Sleeps Tonight > Walk Outside King Kong > Shiny* > King Kong Sunny Day Hakuna Matata* > Time To Ride Somethin’ For Ya > I Just Can’t Wait To Be King*Set Two: Too Long Poseidon% > Auld Lang Syne^ > A Whole New World*^ > Magic Carpet Ride # > Poseidon Horizon > I Wanna Be Like You* > Bare Necessities* > I Wanna Be Like You > Horizon > When You Wish Upon A Star*^ Dawn A New Day Skipjack > Can You Feel The Love Tonight* Schwanthem > Colors of The Wind* > Schwanthem > The LiquidEncore: Couldn’t We All > M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E* Zydeko > Tale As Old As Time*^ > ZydekoNotes: * First time played | ^ Instrumental | % w/ NYE countdown | # w/ “Arabian Nights” and “How Far I’ll Go” teases <a href=”http://pigeonsplayingpingpong.bandcamp.com/album/disnye-2017″>DisNYE 2017 by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong</a>center_img Load remaining imageslast_img read more

first_imgThis Saturday, ESPN College Gameday will be at the USC-Washington game in Seattle. I’ve grown up a USC fan, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved getting to watch Gameday and have always wanted to go to a show when they were at USC. I’ve always been entertained by the signs and the antics that come with the show. Now in my junior year, one of my main wishes as a student has been to have Gameday on campus. I still haven’t had the chance. I almost had the chance in 2013 when Gameday was at Stanford when USC was visiting Palo Alto. Ironically enough, my parents were at the game while I was in the mountains on a church retreat. I had an amazing time while on retreat, but getting the videos of the Trojan victory and fans storming the field from current students, friends and USC alum sent to me made it all bittersweet. In 2014, I lived vicariously through my best friend Nicolette, a Baylor fan, when Gameday stopped in Waco, Texas for the Kansas State-Baylor game. It was really cool to hear about how she spent the night on a grass field surrounded by her fellow Bears fans making posters, getting free gear and bonding together as a fan base. She was even lucky enough to get her sign on the broadcast. It was everything I had wanted to experience, but I looked forward to the possibility of Gameday being at USC either of the next three seasons. There were rumors and speculations of Gameday coming to USC during my sophomore season, but nothing panned out. I was halfway through my time at USC, but undeterred from the chances of it actually happening. On Sunday morning, while I was at home, my dad came in my room to tell me, “Guess where Gameday is going on Saturday?” Frankly, I didn’t want to believe it. I even hesitated to say the Washington game because it meant that Gameday was going to be at a USC game and I was not. Of course, Gameday would be at Washington. It stung even more because I was supposed to be in Seattle for the game. Not only would I get to work the game on the field, I was also going to get to visit friends from home that I hadn’t seen in awhile. On top of all of that, I would get to participate in the excitement that is College Gameday. But, of course, because of some commitments for a class project, I am not able to go up to Seattle for the game. It’s a bummer for a number of reasons, because I also love Seattle, but it’s a huge bummer because I’m missing out on the opportunity to participate in Gameday.With only one home game left against 3-6 Notre Dame, I can almost certainly say that College Gameday will not be making the trek to L.A. to cover the game. Another USC football season through, another season without Gameday on USC’s campus. Just as I have over the last two seasons, I’ll survive by looking forward to the possibility that Gameday will make an appearance. Looking forward, there’s a huge part of me hoping that Gameday will come in September when the Texas Longhorns make their way to the Coliseum. While the Trojans have a 4-1 all-time record against the Longhorns, every Trojans fan knows about the poor taste left behind by the 2005 National Championship Game — the last time the Trojans and Longhorns faced off. Even though this season isn’t done yet, I’ll be looking forward to next season and Sept. 16 when there’s a real chance that College Gameday could once again be on our campus.
