Has anybody else heard about the August 20 double-headline show with Aimee Mann and Ben Folds in Central Park? This is just cruel. Two of my absolute favorite people in the same place at the same time, and I can't be there. Oh yeah, life's fair.
Aimee Mann rocks my world
But not as much as Ben Folds
I mean really. I've seen Ben Folds, but Aimee Mann always plays these tiny shows in San Francisco at Slim's on Tuesday nights when I have to work the next day. So even though she tours frequently, I've missed her 3x in two years.
Ah crap. Woulda coulda shoulda.
There's also another Peter Gabriel show in July. Naah, no thanks. I was disappointed enough last time. It's so sad to see someone you adore age that badly. And to have to listen to his spectacularly untalented daughter. Eek.
Last year was great for shows though: Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Ben Folds, Russell Malone - all within 4 months. For a while we called it the Aging Rocker tour set.
