Aimee Mann had the enthralled crowd on their feet many times last night, at the intimate Dakota Jazz Club, in downtown Minneapolis. The noted songwriter and performer, gave a delightful 90 minute performance, on the third night of a 3 night stand, kicking off her current tour. Most known for the music she created for the soundtrack of Paul Thomas Anderson's 1999 movie Magnolia, including the Academy Award and Grammy-nominated song, "Save Me". Mann performed Save Me, Wise Up and One, from Magnolia, as well as fan favorites like The Moth, Driving Sideways, and Freeway (from her 2008 CD *%&$#*@ Smilers). She treated the crowd to new songs from the upcoming musical debut she has been writing; based upon her 2005 album The Forgotten Arm.
It was a wonderful night, accompanied by my good friend Bec Smith. More pics here.
