so... Ariel is currently touring North America with Carpark artist Belong and recently sent out an APB looking for backing bands on his tour. To quote the press release:
February 2, 2006 – Paw Tracks artist Ariel Pink announced today that he's inviting local musicians to perform with him onstage.
"You will get to be my back-up band – for a day," said Ariel Pink.
On his upcoming tour, Ariel will perform the first half of his show solo, and the second half with his band of the day. The first band in each touring city to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org will get the opportunity to play with Ariel Pink. Ariel asks local bands to arrive by sound check so they can practice before the show, and to bring their own instruments and amplifiers. Drummers are invited, but beware, you will have to compete with Ariel Pink's mouth, which will provide the drumming for his solo set. Bands must know the songs before arriving.
"The element of surprise will keep me from falling asleep onstage," said Ariel Pink.
