Tonight: Aimee Mann at The Egg

Aimee Mann is performing tonight at The Egg with support from Jonathan Coulton. Tickets are on sale and are $34.50.

Aimee Mann was recently on a podcast I love called Song Exploder, which is “a podcast musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made”. This ends up giving you a much deeper look into the song, and those responsible for it’s creation. This episode was recorded live on a cruise organized by tonight’s opener, Jonathan Coulton.
