Ariel Pink & R. Stevie Moore @ Webster Hall - 9/14/2012
Ariel Pink

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, complete with R. Stevie Moore in tow, brought its current headlining tour in support of "Mature Themes" to Webster Hall in NYC Friday night (9/14). TEEN and BODYGUARD opened the show which is pictured in this post.

The somewhat unofficial afterparty happened afterwards at 285 Kent, and despite unofficial confirmations and strong rumors, Ariel Pink apparently never confirmed he would play 285 Kent, and he didn't. However, Webster Hall opener Bodyguard (James Ferraro) did play along with rumored secret guest Holy Other (who opened for Amon Tobin at Hammerstein Ballroom earlier in the night) and secret guests and Pink associates Geneva Jacuzzi and R. Stevie Moore (whose set started around 3:45am).

John Maus @ Mercury Lounge
John Maus

One night after they played Glasslands, John Maus and Puro Instinct brought their tour to Mercury Lounge. The Wednesday night (6/29) Manhattan show also included Amazing Army and Geneva Jacuzzi on the bill. Amanda summed up the night as "slightly bizarre, very entertaining."

Opener Amazing Amy is a very flexible woman, especially for her age.

Geneva Jacuzzi, a woman dressed as a mime, sang over an iPod playing backing tracks while running back and forth and dancing across the stage.

John Maus also performed with a backing track, but is more riveting. He jumps around stage, pounds himself in the head and chest like he's in physical pain or psychological anguish, and screams without a mic in between singing parts. Hermione Hoby says John is "like a kid doing charade to word "INTENSITY".'" Amanda said she was "sort of afraid he's going to hit me, but I still can't look away." It will be interesting to see if John makes the switch to full band some time in the future.

Puro Instinct delivered a calmer set that will be improved with more years. You can catch Puro Instinct again tonight (7/1) as the no longer secret guest at Pianos. Puro & John continue on the road together again after that.
