Ariel Pink Dropped by Record Label Mexican Summer After Attending Washington Trump Rally

    Ariel Pink has been dropped by his record label, Mexican Summer, following the artist’s attendance at the pro-Trump rally outside the White House on Wednesday, January 6. “Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward,” the label tweeted.

    On January 7, reports surfaced that filmmaker Alex Lee Moyer had posted a photo of herself with Pink and collaborator John Maus at the rally. Pink later confirmed his attendance, but denied being a part of the mob who later stormed the Capitol building. “i was in dc to peacefully show my support for the president…” he wrote on Twitter. “i attended the rally on the white house lawn and went back to hotel and took a nap. case closed.”

    Mexican Summer released Pink’s latest album, 2017’s Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, and had been set to reissue several of the musician’s remastered albums, including Odditties Sodomies Vol. 1, Sit n’ SpinOdditties Sodomies Vol. 3, and Scared Famous/FF>> on January 29 as the final installments of its “Ariel Archives” series.
