    I have had the opportunity now three times to see Ariel Pink and have missed out all times. The first time I was actually away while they were in Vancouver, the second time I had the chance to see them in Chicago. The day I had the opportunity to see them in Chicago ended up being the only day I could go to six flags however so I didn’t end up seeing them.

    The third time was the day I had tickets to the Flaming Lips in Vancouver on September 26th. The night before was my friends going away party so I stayed up REALLY REALLY late drinking and having some last good times before she flew to Thailand. In September my best friend (who was with me during all times we had the chance to see ariel pink) and I were in the process of completing a thirty day bikram yoga challenge. So after spending a night piss drunk we had to drive hungover from Langley to Richmond to do an hour and a half of hot yoga. Afterward you can imagine how we felt.

    We then proceeded to spend the afternoon upon my couch slightly delirious. We ended up watching the movie “Hotel for Dogs” in the mid afternoon. Previously we had huge plans to get downtown early and see Ariel Pink and be front and center. However upon this day we were not the usual concert go-getters and ended up getting lost in this silly movie, bussing and arriving at the Malcolm Bowl precisely as Ariel Pink left the stage.

    This is the sad tale of how Deidre and Kaylee missed the opportunity to see Ariel Pink. However, they were given the opportunity to see Ariel Pink one last time. Due to working at McDonalds and to still paying off a fun summer Deidre and Kaylee cannot afford twenty dollar tickets to Ariel Pink.

    I would like to see Ariel Pink because I believe this is contest is a way of “god” graciously giving myself and my best friend one last chance to sway to the tunes of a lovely musician.


    SO PWEEZ, be my genie, grant me one wish and I will forever be in your debt.

  2. the last time i saw ariel pink, he sat on the stage grabbing his head. and STILL they had some of the best three part harmonies i’ve ever heard. so please, PLEASE, give me a chance to see the band while he’s standing up!

  3. I like good concerts and this one sounds amazing. So I’d like to see it. No long epic story from me. Just would really like the chance to see something new to me.

  4. Why do I want to see Ariel Pink live in Vancouver?

    To start, Deidre nicely summed up my story in a nutshell! I have had two opportunities to see Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti (who happen to be one of my favorite bands) yet both times fell through. Once in Chicago where the day of their show clashed with our already-made plans to go to Six Flags. The second time Deidre and I were going to see them in Vancouver with the Flaming Lips but, unfortunately, and as mentioned, due to a previous late night for our good friend’s going-away-to-Asia party, we were exhausted and decided to take a later bus. (And yes, watched Hotel for Dogs.) Of course it so happens that we showed up after Ariel Pink had already finished. I told myself not to panic for they were coming back in November, but as it turns out that due to school and debts I cannot afford to spare even twenty dollars! Anyways, third time could be a charm, right? The opportunity to see this wonderful band would honestly be the cherry on top of my fall!

    Thanks for your time! 🙂

  5. Ariel looks like a Barbie after a three year old has given it a makeover.
    The first time I saw Ariel play, he laid down on the stage and told the audience he had to go to sleep.Then he said he was going to Misoolah.
    The second time I saw Ariel, this happened
    Later that afternoon, I slipped on a grape and broke my behind.
    I have about three dollars in my bank account.
    Thank you for your consideration.
