Aimee Mann, Field Report

When: Tue., Oct. 2, 8 p.m. 2012


I've heard rumors that Aimee Mann might be a boring show to attend. I, however, refuse to accept these vicious whisperings. WHO IS TELLING LIES ABOUT AIMEE?! This is the gal who made the film Magnolia a fucking wonder to behold and watch over and over with her incredible soundtrack. So I suppose in the unlikely event I get antsy watching this singer/songwriter, I'll think about the following relevant points in a dreamy manner: She is a beautiful six-foot-tall Amazon, an improbable 52 years old, with a long-awaited new album, Charmer. Girl likes lingonberry pancakes. (The movies don't lie, right?) She's funny! Listen to her on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. (I'm going to do my best NOT to think about her cleaning-lady turn on Portlandia.) But honestly, I can't imagine having to resort to any of this mind-trickery to enjoy the talented musician, creator of one of the world's most perfect albums, 2000's Bachelor No. 2.
