Aiming at multiple birds simultaneously here... above is the poster for tonite's Pigeons/Fabulous Diamonds show in San Francisco at Bottom of the Hill.. another stunner by Alice Cohen, i think she's got scissors for hands like that Johnny Depp guy had during his goth phase...
By all reports the Pigeons/Fabulous Diamonds tour has been a resounding success -- they just played with the Monopoly Child Star Searcher himself in Portland, Oregon & today in San Francisco there is an in-store scheduled at the mighty Aquarius Records at 5 p.m.
Here's a live clip filmed by Matt of Acid Marshmallow of the Pigeons in-store at Permanent Records in Chicago on November 2nd.. thanks Matt!!
