Aimee Mann Disappointed Me

AimeemannitunesorigOkay, she didn’t actually disappoint me because I didn’t actually see her. It’s the fact that she rescheduled and I didn’t get to see her was the disappointing part. She was supposed to be in Ann Arbor tonight at the Michigan Theatre, I didn’t have tickets but there were seats available and I usually do pretty good picking some up at the last minute. I’m not sure when the show got bumped to the 20th (not one-hundred-percent sure I can make that one, but I’ll try). Since I really enjoyed the Liz Phair iTunes Originals album I picked up the other day I thought I’d pull out my Aimee Mann iTunes Originals album I had never really appreciated them before Liz’s so I’ll have to check out the few others I’ve purchased (and didn’t purchase).

I first saw Aimee Mann in concert (and started listening to here) at the Lilith Fair test tour, this was the tour when Sarah McLachlan took some other female artists out with her to show the concert promoters that people would come. I think it was Aimee, Sarah, Lisa Loeb, Patti Smith and Paula Cole. It was a nice concert in that it wasn’t a madhouse with all these bands playing on all these difference stages, but (if I recall correctly) it seems the performances were cut a little short due to having five headliners….

On other disappointments today:

  • Since I didn’t go to AA, I thought I might check out the festivities downtown for the SuperBowl but the weather is so crappy out I don’t even want to be wandering around downtown.
  • So I since that didn’t happen I figured that I always enjoy Battlestar Galactica so let’s watch that, but I really thought this week’s was a little slow :(

    The thing about Galactica is I never rush to see it but it’s always SO good I never understand why I waited to watch it…

    Actually I had a pretty good day today, I’m not moping, I’m just whining because I was just listening to her and thinking about it so I started typing…

      I’m really liking the iTunes original disc, I guess I didn’t really listen to it before…

      I keep checking ticket availability but it isn’t getting any better. You’d think someone who can’t go to the rescheduled date would have returned their tickets for me to buy :)

      Aimee Mann part deux

      Since Aimee Mann disappointed me the other week by canceling her concert. I thought I better speak up since things are now way better at my end. She’s rescheduled for tomorrow in Ann Arbor and I managed to get a seat in the front row!!! I’ll post a rev…

      I’ve gotten more spam attempts (note that these are failed attempts) for this post than anything else for the last 5 weeks. I’m tired of it (I get alerts on the off chance it’s a real post) so I’m closing the comments for this post. I don’t think I’ve ever had to do this before…

      The above comment links to where I have seen her which is a more interesting post about her.
