Lo-fi musical experimentalist Ariel Pink has all the breadth of knowledge you would hope from a person who worked in a California record store. Although some of Ariel Pink’s earliest endeavors were criticized for sounding like they lacked all production value, Ariel Pink knew what he was doing. He wanted to create art as much as anything and his influence on music today is undeniable.
Ariel Pink plays at Le National (1220 St Catherine E). Doors 7 p.m. $22/25.
