Otherwise Engaged: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti/Os Mutantes

It is an unfortunate reality for the serious concertgoer that on occasion, there will be more than one show on any given night that you really, really, REALLY wanna go to. Since the vast majority of us don't own a time machine, nor have the ability to either clone ourselves or split ourselves in half (or thirds or quarters, depending on the night in question), this tends to present a problem. Difficult decisions are made based on a multitude of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those other shows are still gonna be killer, and I'd like to give a little face time to the shows that, while I can't go myself, are highly recommended all the same.

One could say that all things weird and wonderful, all sounds great and small were made by the Animal Collective-approved Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and the bewitchingly bizarre Os Mutantes. There’s gonna be all sorts of psychy-electro-trippy-dippy wackiness happening when LA meets Brasil and new school meets old school at the 9:30 Club this very evening. I suspect there might also be a whole lotta dancefloor action, as well. If you're in the DC area and in need of something to do this holiday evening, consider yourself booked. Just make sure to bring your dancing shoes.
