at Fitzgerald Theater

Aimee Mann (from ‘Till Tuesday) is back in the Twin Cities this Wednesday at the Fitzgerald Theater in St Paul to promote her new album Mental Illness (SuperEgo Records).
She’s brought with her our favorite Jonathan Coulton. We’ve been a fan of Joco since we heard his wonderful cover of Sir Mix A Lot’s ‘Baby Got Back’... which was so good that Glee stole his version (and offered no apologize, credit, or any payments).
We’ve seen Coulton before, and I can say that he has a very large, dedicated fanbase. They love him so much, and they know all of his songs by heart.
Coulton’s new album Solid State came out April 28th.

Laura Marling is back in town! We have love the singer/songwriter since she was 16, and we’ve been following her grow up as an artist all these years. Her sixth studio album Semper Femina came out March 10th.
We’ve seen her numerous times (over 10) and she’s always a delight. The last we saw her, we said, “45 min. with a Joni Mitchell-like set of poetry and folk. Marling remains notoriously shy - not saying much between songs, and probably comforted by the shade covering her face for the first half of her performance.”
Los Angeles four-piece Valley Queen will open the show. The band is led by singer/songwriter Natalie Carol and is said to sound like Fleetwood Mac and My Morning Jacket with vocals from Florence Welch. Their first-ever EP Destroyer came out earlier last month.
