Pigeon John Joins DJ Shadow Tour as Main Support
Pigeon John signs on as the main support for DJ Shadow's North American tour kicking off on October 25th in Vancouver, BC at the Commodore Ballroom. Known for his wildly energetic performances, Pigeon John, deemed "a showman in the tradition of Cab Calloway and August Darnell" by the Los Angeles Times, will continue rocking out crowds on the road with DJ Shadow following a run of headlining dates on the West Coast and through the Midwest. The Los Angeles-based indie rapper released his most recent album Dragon Slayer last week, with lead single "The Bomb" featured in the new national Volkswagen Jetta commercial.
Check out this intimate performance of "Davey Rockit" from MyNinja Loft, and catch Pigeon John with DJ Shadow live on tour this fall.

"John is the constantly self-effacing artist, mocking himself for being unconventional and fitting comfortably into rap stereotypes, while simultaneously making some of hip-hop's most interesting songs in the process." ~ Rap Reviews
"Pigeon John has made a name for himself as one of hip hop's most consistently outstanding live performers." ~ URB
