If you’re not familiar with the psycho-sexiness of Ariel Pink, you’re missing out on life. OK, maybe not life, but definitely an amazing artist who has some dope tracks and a stellar live show to bring those tracks to life.

The artist’s expansive discography includes dreamy tracks like “Life in L.A.” off Worn Copy, to the experimental sounds of Thrash and Burn, to the poppy sounds of Pink’s most recent album, pom pom, and of course, a fan favorite, Before Today (technically Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, but still a classic).



Former Current music editor Matt Stieb reviewed the 2015 show saying “Pink is a master of the skit, throwing voicemails and cell phone conversations into his Jeff Koons pop." For “Black Ballerina’s” strip club scene, Pink, the bikini-drummer and keyboard player Jorge Elbrecht traded off on lines, dropping gems like “Hi Billy, how do you like the number one strip club in L.A?” and “Uhh... I like your areolas baby” before returning to the body of the song.” You can guarantee to see us at this show for sure.

$21.75, Friday, November 10, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
