Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Bodyguard, Moon Diagrams

When: Tue., Sept. 11, 9 p.m. 2012

The 2010 album Before Today turned Animal Collective-approved bedroom musician, armpit and mouth fart percussionist and all-around retromaniac Ariel Pink into a pretty big deal. Way too much touring hammered his band, Haunted Graffiti, into a sleazy disco-punk force that changed his cassette-hiss-encrusted slow jams into fist-pumping freak-outs. His new album, Mature Themes, doubles down on everything off-putting and brilliant about Ariel: arch self-loathing ballads; a Devo-like ditty titled "Pink Slime"; and songs about schnitzel, "testicle bombs" and Werner Herzog collaborator Klaus Kinski. Who knows what you'll get in the live show this time around. That's a good thing though, right? Right? Bodyguard and Moon Diagrams open. —Brandon Soderberg
