Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti at the Bluebird, 11/23/10

ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI
With Diva and Os Mutantes
11.23.10 | Bluebird Theatre

Ariel Pink (whose real name is Ariel Rosenberg) spent the better part of the last decade making lo-fi recordings of himself in his bedroom and being booed off-stage during solo tours. When he got signed to record label 4AD and released his first studio album earlier this year, though, he went on the road again as a headliner, and last night, he brought his rough, psychadelic pop-rock sound to the Bluebird Theater.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
