“Dear Fellow Flockers -
This was an incredibly difficult decision for me, but this will be my final year as the drummer for Pigeons. I know this may come as a shock, but the decision is a result of my changing lifestyle and career goals outside of touring, and I’ll be finishing up the year with the rest of our 2014 shows. It’s been a hell of a ride with these boys over the last 6-7 years, and I’ll definitely miss them, all the experiences we’ve shared, and all the friends I’ve made. I’m super pumped for the future of the band, and I’m excited to introduce our new drummer: Alex Petropulous! Check out the comments below for a video of Alex filling in for me on Wednesday in Philly, homeboy kills it! I appreciate everyone’s support as I transition into this new phase of my life. Make sure to come wish me well at the Howard Theatre in DC tonight and our remaining 2014 shows, and FLOCK ON FOREVER!”
- Dan Schwartz

It’s tough to see your brother fly the coop, but we know it’s for the best and wish him well in his next chapter of life. We know the Flock will love Alex and welcome him with open wings. He’s a GREAT guy, amazing drummer, and most importantly, fits like a glove musically. In the meantime, be sure to catch Dan’s last shows, and as always, thank you for your ongoing support. 2015 is going to be HUGE!!

Halloween at the Maryland Science Center was unreal. We played under a T-Rex for a 2,250-person sold out crowd; Greg couldn’t have asked for a better birthday. Our “Science”-themed set featured first-time covers of Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science,” The Who’s “Sparks,” and David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” Two mad scientists appeared during the Dolby cover and wowed the crowd with wild illusions. And during the double encore of “Space Oddity>Horizon,” the top half of our mannequin, Emu the Glorious, magically blasted off into the balcony at Bowie’s lyrics “3..2..1..Lift-off” leaving behind his heart-shaped boxers and legs. Needless to say, you had to be there.
