Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – Debaser Slussen, October 22nd 2010

It was a nice evening with a lot of live music in Debaser Slussen. Next to Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti it was Geneva Jacuzzi from L.A. who started the evening after a little waiting around 10 o’clock.

Geneva Jacuzzi might just turn out to be the most original act that I have ever seen. She performed a combination of mime, modern dance and obviously music. It took a time to get used to the act but thanks to the always positive and active audience at Debaser Slussen it was an interesting experience.

After Geneva Jacuzzi being the most original performance, the show of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti has to be described as the most intimate one. I have never seen a concert where the band exchanged so much with the audience. Next to the mingling with the crowd, giving hands, crowd-surfing and sharing the microphone, women and men in the audience got kissed a few times by Ariel Pink (Ariel Marcus Rosenberg).

It seemed like the atmosphere was filled with… Ehm, let’s keep it to intimacy. Swedes and lots of other nationalities in the audience and the band melted together into one energetic moving organism. At first I felt that it was going to be hard for me to get into the vibe but somehow it was so strong that even a cold Dutch guy got influenced by it.

Still, although the music is not totally my cup of tea, if you want to experience a steaming live-concert, and there is not someone performing in a sauna around your corner, then I recommend a concert by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.

Audience and band melt together

The whole show of the band showed that they all had fun doing with what they were doing. Ariel Pink for instance played air-guitar or air-keyboard during the solo’s. It was also good to see that Geneva Jacuzzi was dancing backstage to the music while Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti performed.
