The Egg welcomes back alt-pop singer-songwriter Aimee Mann for a concert at 7:30pm on Tuesday, April 25, in support of her upcoming album, Mental Illness, slated for release later this year.
From her work as the frontwoman with MTV favorite Til Tuesday to her acclaimed solo discs to her Grammy Award winning soundtrack to “Magnolia” to her work in The Both with Ted Leo, Mann has consistently churned out rich and insightful music that reaches well beyond the usual pop boundaries.
Priced at $34.50 & $44.50, tickets to Mann’s concert are currently available exclusively to members of The Egg and will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday (January 20).
What?!? The Dave Matthews Band won’t be playing at SPAC this summer? Really? That’s right, DMB isn’t touring this year.
Well, Dave-heads don’t fret. Instead of bringing the band along with him this year, Dave Matthews is heading out on tour with his pal Tim Reynolds, and they’ll be playing a pair of acoustic duo shows at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs at 7:30pm on Friday & Saturday, June 16 & 17.
Hosted by Michael Eck, the evening will feature a number of Greater Nippertown’s best – including Mark Tolstrup, the trio of Elrod, MotherJudge & McWatters, Girl Blue, Sean Rowe and special guest Tom Dimopoulos – performing songs from the deep, rich catalog of the gruff-voiced troubadour.
Tickets are now on sale, priced at $20 in advance; $22 at the door.
