Ariel Pink to co-headline tour with The Black Lips, swindle 'em, jet off to Europe

Oh, when Ariel Pink gets together with The Black Lips, you best believe there’s gonna be trouble! Those two lo-fi garage-rock-pop junkyard scumballs could be the king scumballs of America… if they don’t kill each other first! Whoa! This October, the Pink man himself is teaming up with Atlanta’s greasiest for a co-headlining tour of the West Coast. Expect thrills, expect spills, expect chills — just don’t expect your money back!

Funny thing is, the Ariel Pink + Black Lips hijinks are only Act 1 of this screwball adventure. Just when Pink and Lips were getting closest, just as they were really understanding each other, just as Lips guitarist Cole Alexander got done telling Ariel the story about how his dog ran away as a child and that’s why he now pushes people away, well, that’s when Ariel Pink took the Tlack Lips’ money and ran off to Europe! What!? It’s there where Pink gets involved in an international jewel-heist plot involving a duke, a street urchin, and the seductive Miss Bellflower. Oh, also Ariel Pink will be playing a number of European dates.
