Hey pILLOWpeeps!

We know, it’s been awhile since we’ve said hello on this thing. So hey to you all! Our year started out with a kick off show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Basically, we’re doing at least a new song every show to test new material (and get these sonics off our chests to the people) for the upcoming new reelase. Don’t want to disclose a date or time when this will be released yet. Just writing and playing it as it lays but you’ll receive more details as this takes more shape along the journey. Thanks to all who represented at Mercury that cold Winter night. You’re the best and we had a blast thanks to you!

Next, Kelsey will be performing a few solo shows at SXSW in Austin next week. More details sooner than later. He’ll be back in NYC just in time for the next full band pILLOW show at PIANOS on the Lower East Side. This is an album release party for their friends Disparager! Get in thy building.

We’ll be hitting a city near you late Spring, early Summer for the Incognegro Tour 2014! If you want us in your area, holla at us or the coolest club of your choice. See ya soon and thank you always for your support!

pT 3/3/14

Hey pILLOWpeeps,
Miss you all much. Haven’t played a lot of shows here and not on the road but we’re so busy behind the scenes, it’s difficult to plan a lunch break these days! Lots of writing and going back and forth over new material in and out of the studio. Here’s what’s going down on the live front within a week.
Kelsey plays a special solo set for the CBGB Festival tonight Thursday October 10 at National Underground, 8pm. 159 East Houston Street, NYC. Expect stripped down pILLOW favorites and other gems pulled out of his hat :)
The full band return for an exclusive FREE Happy Hour CMJ showcase at Bowery Electric this WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 16 at 5pm. Yes it’s free and we hit stage at 5:15pm just in time for you to leave your job and take advantage of a much needed Happy Hour drink with us. More new songs to penetrate your ear, including the increasingly popular “Baby Making Heels” track (one new one passing the test). 327 Bowery at 2nd Street in money Making Manhattan. This is probably going to be our last NYC performance of the year so come now or hold your breath until 2014.
Thank you all for your support always.

Hey pILLOWpeeps,

We’re looking forward to seeing you tomorrow Tuesday May 28 at Mercury Lounge for our first show in quite sometime. 




Mercury Lounge

217 East Houston St NYC



21 & over

Thank you all for being awesome and supporting!  Great surprises coming this Summer and Fall!  See your arse at the venue!

Just in case you missed the update, the songs in our MUSIC section on http://facebook.com/pillowtheory are FREE, for awhile at least. Take advantage while you can. There’s also the option of buying music from our latest album, Meltdown on https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/meltdown/id568496658 and internet stores that are cool of course. No this is not an April Fool’s joke. You’re welcome!

Hey pILLOWpeeps,
Been awhile, missing you all and the stage so much! Bless those who attended our last show in January at The Studio/Webster Hall in NYC with some awesome old friends on the bill (Alex Kelly of course) and new ones too (yeah Dynasty Electric, Jadex & peeps). Since then Kelsey and Danos have been in the lab working on new material, Joaquin has been traveling and Bill has been spreading his drum love all over NYC and Boston. We’re hibernating but still busy behind the scenes.
We’ll return to the venues in a few months with some new sonic goodies for you! Yes Brooklyn, we will be playing the NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL 2013 in June which we’re excited about. Expect some cool treats between now and then. Gearing up for a Summer fun tour as well. Check out our Twitter & Facebook pages for more updates and everything you need to know regarding pILLOW.
You all rule!
