    Thu 19 Mar – Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti

    Ariel was fun and drunk and high and crazy but the music didn't really deliver. Not as much as I wanted it to, anyway. The live show lacked the pop! of the recorded stuff, which is just as well. I don't think you can duplicate that lo-fi awesomeness live anyway, but a little more something up on stage would have been nice.

    Ariel grabbed my hair, then my lady's hair then my good friend's hair in quick succession at the beginning of the show; later on he fell off the stage and hit my lady in the face with his butt. Then he just kinda laid there half-hurt but still singing for a few minutes.

    The man's a genius, just not at live shows. I don't think we should hold that against him.
