Ariel Pink at Irving Plaza - 9/12/12 (via Leandro Justen)
As mentioned, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti are on tour now (a tour that hit Austin recently) in support of their new album, Mature Themes, and the tour hits NYC TONIGHT (9/14) at Webster Hall with BODYGUARD (aka James Ferraro) and TEEN. Tickets for tonight's show are still available. All tour dates are listed below.
After the Webster Hall show BODYGUARD will head to 285 Kent for a show with three secret artists. Any guesses on who they might be?
You might be aware that Ariel Pink was also in NYC a few days earlier and played a private Proenza Schouler Fashion Week party at Irving Plaza on Wednesday (9/12), which is pictured above. If you were at the party, how was it? Weyes Blood (aka fromer Jackie-O Motherfucker member Natalie Mering), who plays with Sun Araw soon, was at the show and sang backup vocals with Ariel Pink for his song "Early Birds." Wonder if Ariel has any surprises like that in store for tonight.
Speaking of shows happening in Manhattan tonight, Holy Other will be opening for Amon Tobin at Hammerstein Ballroom tonight (9/14). Tickets for tonight's show are still available. Amon Tobin is also DJing a boat party on Saturday.
