Music in the Zoo

The zoo is such an amazing venue in the summer. The acoustics are really beautiful, but in Minnesota there are some drawbacks…..

I saw Aimee Mann last night with my good friend Shan. She was supposed to go with Lori, but she couldn’t get here from out of town.

Shan called Lori during the show,

but i’m sure it wasn’t the same.

Aimee is someone I admire. I don’t have many of her albums but I trust my friends taste and I’ve heard most of the music. She was really fun to see last night.

She was so appreciative of the fans and really modest. She mentioned that she was going to play some songs from a movie called Magnolia. She said she had a few songs on the soundtrack. Like I said, modest.

She was also a really good sport. She and her band were being attacked by bugs, so much so that her drummer had a moth fly in his mouth.

Now that’s dedication. They even did 2 encores.

Thanks Aimee and your band. 🙂
