The Oral History of Pigeons & Planes


In honor of Pigeons and Planes' fifth birthday, we decided to tell the P&P story from the very beginning. We've seen a lot of blogs come and go since 2008, but with a lot of hard work and a little luck, Pigeons & Planes is still here and better than ever. Whether you've been with us from day one, discovered us after we started our Complex chapter, or found us for the first time today after seeing our sticker at a concert—this one's for you. Told in words collected over the course of a month from the people closest to P&P's heart, spanning from New York City to Chicago to Vancouver to Los Angeles, its story personifies the familial spirit that's come to define this blog. And so without further ado, we present to you the Oral History of Pigeons and Planes.
