I really enjoyed the Scala show, the sound was somewhat murky and Ariel had trouble with his vocal effects pedal about halfway through the gig, unplugging it and asking the sound engineer to look after his vocals for the rest of the gig. It was great to see Jason Pierce sit in for the first two tracks but he disappeared after that and was never seen again! There was also a guest violinist who played on quite a few tracks but he was barely audible. I briefly met Kenny before the show too, nice guy.
The 'Jimmy Saville' comment I thought was just black humour but it seems The Guardian has jumped on it much in the same way as the press did over the whole Madonna incident, the American's here probably won't get the reference but it's pretty near the knuckle if you live in the UK. All in all a really enjoyable show, and Ariel's boots were worth the price admission on their own!

It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with LadyLazrus and her friends at the show, they were all nice friendly people. I guess a few of you here have already met Ladylazarus and as you probably know she's great company, funny, crazy, gorgeous and most of all just a genuine music obsessive like the rest of us here! 8D

As a special treat for you all here's two minutes of Lipstick I filmed, a Mausspace exclusive!

please take pictures of merchandise at the show!!! I am dying to know what shirts and other things they might have
and of course pictures of the band :happy:
Just a quick addendum to the last post, the merch stall had 'Before Today' CDs and Vinyl, Pom Pom CD, Vinyl and Cassette, posters and the 'It's All Ariel's Fault' shirts. There were none of Kate's badges or the special item she mentioned in another post.

Didn't Ariel jest about Kim Fowley already being dead at one point, too? I'm pretty sure he is regarded publicly as the Frankie Boyle of pop these days.
I will have to submit a full report of the show once I am back home (I am staying put in London until after King Tuff's gig), but for now I can only echo what others have said: AP pulled it off and Pom Pom sounded pretty glorious. I did get a bit of a "New York crowd" vibe at times when not many others seemed that engaged, but I must remember this was debuting all-new material for the less obsessive (who hadn't already known the record by heart prior to official release).
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you, Wowie. Always nice to be able to geek out with a kindred musical spirit and put faces to names on here. Thank you for coming out and making Pom Pom night extra special. If I am still in the UK for Ariel's Electric Ballroom gig in March, then let's definitely meet up again! :truluv:
Official photos and video to follow.

Here are the videos I shot of "Picture Me Gone" and "Lipstick" at the London show last week.

Once I'm more or less free of photographer's heady obstructions, you get a pretty clear view of some Ariel mouth drum action during "Picture Me Gone."
Also you get to hear me mewling with excitement a little bit in both videos (aren't you sooo lucky?).
:victory:

Yes, that is the lovely Mr Wowie, whom I met for the very first time! So far I haven't met a mausspacer I haven't liked.

Are you going to any of the east coast shows, App?

I would love to but February is a bad month for my work unfortunately! The date I wanted to go I have a conference all week beforehand and I'd seriously be too exhausted to want to do anything. Then at the time of the PA show I have court hearings all day. But I would love a shirt or any merchandise if somebody would be so kind to pick something up for me, and they'll be properly reimbursed no question!!!

You have a conference all week beforehand? Jeez you have a hard life! This is Ariel Pink we're talking about, fuck work! I phoned in sick to see Ariel in London last week, who gives a fuck about work? I risked dismissal to see him, I'm now on an offical warning, I don't give a fuck. :666D: Ten years from now when people ask you if you saw Ariel on the Pom Pom tour what are you gonna say? "No, I was too tired" No offence obviously but I've missed so many concerts that I regret not attending due to work and/or money related issues (Nirvana in 1991 a prime example) throw caution to the wind and go!!!!

I hope to figure something out - I have to look over the tour dates again. Also, I live in the middle of nowhere and it also takes a lot of time to get to these places. However, I'm certain about how things would unfold for the two options/venues I was thinking about. I wish I wasn't such a creature of regimen, but I am not proclaiming "it's a cruel world" either!

Any chance of a more detailed review if you have the time? I'd love to hear about the show.

I remember seeing LL post the setlist for the show she went to and I was slightly disappointed that he wasn't going to be playing older songs. After seeing the show, I definitely didn't mind that he played all of pom pom. Ariel and the band sounded so good. It was easily the best sound in the 4-5 times I have seen him.

He started off the show with White Freckles, and that got the crowd moving. After that it was a steady progression to Not Enough Violence, and the crowd hit its peak. I think I tripped over someone at some point, and then helped them up. :lol:
