Aimee Mann at Ogden Theatre, 10/9/12


With an interesting mix of middle aged 'Til Tuesday fans reliving their high school heartaches, along with twenty-something feminist-lit majors swaying with their eyes closed, Aimee Mann delivered a refreshing dose of singer/songwriter warmth to the Ogden Theatre last night. Relying heavily on material from her more recent albums, @#%&*! Smilers and this autumn's Charmer, Mann's show defied the conventions of her age and genre, forgoing cheap sentimentality.
