Everyone in shiny tops! Not sure Ariel Pink could survive on any other late night show right now other than Jimmy Fallon, who has a whole thing about how he is extra tied into the internet and the culture of young music listeners. He even holds up vinyl instead of CDs, or like, a printed out receipt for a RapidShare premium account. You never really know what you're going to get with Ariel Pink. Maybe he'll play a straightforward show, or maybe he'll instead just climb around and cut his hair on stage. Here he goes straightforward—which still probably perplexed anyone who was in the audience and unaware of his deal. We've been following him for years and we're still not entirely sure what his deal is. Song sounds great live though.
