Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, but especially Mr. Pink, had tongues wagging last night at the Mercury Lounge. The very, very sold-out and highly anticipated performance delivered on all promises: Pink’s swagger and stage persona were intact, his vocals perfectly tweaked out and his songs just as manic as you want them to be.

With the exception of an abbreviated “Round and Round,” (WTF?), the show was a real pleaser. People were screaming, jumping up and down, etc. One person, if memory serves me well, shouted “I just pissed myself!” when Pink walked on stage.
