Tonight In Rock: Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, The Donkeys, Harlem, Orgone
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti will be performing tonight at the Echoplex | Picture via Ariel Pink's Myspace
Our Pick: Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Magic Kids, Puro Instinct @ Echoplex
Tonight San Diegan retro 60s rock act the Donkeys will be headlining Spaceland with Foreign Born side-project Big Search in tow. Austin-based garage rockers Harlem are poised to grace the Echo with Echo Park's own psych-rockers Black Apples and Audacity. And, lastly, local funk troupe Orgone will be performing for free at noon in the heart of Downtown at California Plaza. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Echoplex to catch lo-fi, psychedelic pop maestros Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, who recently released their ninth studio-album—2010's Before Today. LAist favorites, local lo-fi pop trio Pearl Harbor, who are currently operating under the moniker Puro Instinct, and Memphis-bred orchestral pop outfit Magic Kids are slated to kick things off.
