Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti 

Tuesday, March 24

Breakfast at Sulimays is an online show operating out of a Philadelphia diner starring three seniors doing cutthroat reviews of contemporary music. Joe, Ann and Bill recently critiqued the latest work by Young Jeezy and Animal Collective, the latter of whom they panned, noting that they’ll never “get very far from Baltimore, Maryland.” What, one wonders, would this discerning trio make of Animal Collective’s buddy Ariel Pink, an avant-garde artist who joined the experimental band’s Paw Tracks label in 2004? Pink’s output, including material with Haunted Graffiti (backing band members include Jimi Hey of Beachwood Sparks/Glass Candy), is really nothing like AC’s hypnotic electronic/organic tribal symphonies, though it shares in common an otherworldly quality—like being in Twin Peaks or a John Waters film. Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti songs always sound as if their transmitting from an underground—perhaps underwater— bunker. The man behind it all stirs up a witches brew of classic rock and pop twisted and distorted until it’s the albums you and your parents grew up on, only backwards. Live—well, why ruin the surprise? The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 10 p.m. 24Tix.com (with Tolchock Trio)
