We’re happy to announce that Downtown Pidgeons will be playing the After Party at the 4th Annual New York Game Awards at Villain in Williamsburg on February 16th.
There is indeed a game-related aspect to the Pidgeons. Guitarist Billy Pidgeon has been involved in games since the days of Acclaim. He was, for example, executive producer on the games D and Dragonheart and associate producer on Mortal Kombat II.
Since the free open bar liquor for the evening is being supplied by our fine sponsors American Born Moonshine, the sounds of Downtown Pidgeons will really complement the experience we have planned for the bar/club room in Villain.
Here’s more from the Downtown Pidgeons bio: Downtown Pidgeons are a sibling act. Lisa Pidgeon Scordamaglia (vocals/harmonica) & Billy Pidgeon (guitar/vocals) have been making music together in various bands since 1975. As the Blue Shadows, they performed at A7, ABCNoRio, CBGB and other fabulous NYC dives. As Hell Hounds NYC they appeared at other quality lounges including the Pyramid Club, The Cat Club and Danceteria. Now, as Downtown Pidgeons, Lisa and Billy and their crew are coming to a party near you with their musical gumbo of originals and choice covers across a range of genres including blues, soul, rockabilly, R&B and rock ‘n roll.
We can’t wait to hear the Pidgeons live! They may actually be readying a song or two from our Best Music Nominees.
