featuring special guest Jonathan Coulton
- 28 June Wednesday 8:00 PM
Aimee Mann dropped out of the Berklee College of Music to join punk band The Young Snakes. In 1983, she co-founded 'Til Tuesday, a new-wave band that found success with its first album, Voices Carry. The title track became an MTV favorite, winning the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist, propelling Mann and the band into the spotlight. After releasing three albums with the group, she broke up the band and embarked on a solo career. Her first solo album, Whatever, was a more introspective, folk-tinged effort than 'Til Tuesday's albums, and received uniformly positive reviews upon its release in the summer of 1993. Mann's song "Save Me" from the soundtrack to the Paul Thomas Anderson film Magnolia was nominated for an Academy Award and a Grammy. She has recorded nine studio albums, the most recent being Mental Illness, released in 2017 under her own label, SuperEgo Records.
Special guest Jonathan Coulton, often called “JoCo” by fans, is an American singer-songwriter, known for his songs about geek culture and his use of the Internet to draw fans. In 2005, Coulton quit his software career to write music. He launched the Thing-A-Week Project, sparking a burst of productivity that turned him into a cult figure-online-famous, Version 1.0. Along the way he won a reputation as “the internet music-business guy,” an artist who communicated directly with his audience. Solid State is Jonathan Coulton’s new album of excellent songs. It is a concept album about the internet, trolls, artificial intelligence, and how love and empathy will save humanity!
