Aimee Mann SOLD OUT - CALL 516.767.6444 FOR WAITLIST
The Mental Illness Tour
Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at 7:30 pm
DESCRIPTION

You may remember her as the former front woman of the band Til Tuesday, but Aimee Mann's solo career has put her in the forefront of contemporary songwriters. Her clever lyrics and onstage wit makes each of her concerts unique and memorable.

Mental Illness, her first album in five years, was released on March 31 via her own SuperEgo Records. The record follows 2012's Charmer, which Rolling Stone proclaimed "shows off the more pop-oriented side to her usual acoustic tendencies." With this follow-up, she returns to a more musically soft-spoken but still lyrically barbed approach, as heard in the album's lead single, "Goose Snow Cone."

After several albums with Til Tuesday, Mann began her solo career in 1993 with the album Whatever and made a name for herself through her independent success and the founding of her record label, SuperEgo Records. In addition to her solo albums, she has appeared on many film soundtracks, most notably the song score for Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia, with "Save Me" landing her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Original Song.

In 2014, Mann joined up with Ted Leo for a more rock-oriented duo project, releasing a self-titled album under the name The Both. Other extracurricular activities since Charmer ranged from playing herself on the hit TV series Portlandia to performing for President Obama and the First Lady at the White House. Named one of The Huffington Post's "13 Funny Musicians You Should Be Following On Twitter," Mann has gained a diehard social media following for her quick wit and stinging observation.

Special guest Jonathan Coulton, a prolific and witty songwriter and performer in his own right, joins Aimee Mann on Mental Illness on acoustic guitar and backing vocals.
