Aimee Mann in Washington Park

Aimee Mann

Albany's Monday Nights in the Park concert series has a great show lined up for tonight. Aimee Mann is headlining the night. (Yes, the Aimee Mann.) That's pretty cool all by itself, but it gets better: the show is free.

Things kick off at 6 pm in the amphitheater at the Washington Park Lakehouse. Make sure you get there in time to catch the opening act -- it's local singer/songwriter/guitarist Ashley Pond.

(Bonus: the Albany Rickshaw guy will also be there tonight.)

He said "shut up, can't you keep it down!!"

See, THIS is why I read AOA. I was just thinking to myself, "hm, I know Aimee Mann is playing tonight, but I don't know when the show starts." How helpful!

You already counsel me on what to eat and listen to... if you start dressing me in the mornings, I swear I'll make you my internet mom.

OMG OMG OMG! My boyfriend told me she was coming months ago because he knows how much I love her music. I've been looking forward to this for so long! I will be there lightening or sunshine. And I am soooooo stalking her after the show. It's at the Lakehouse which means she has two choices- meet me or run into the pond to escape me.

I met her afterward the show. Did you too?

@James: Do tell. How'd it go? (After reading James site: he's posted pictures.)

I did! But my pictures came out all wrong. :( One was blurry and the others didn't have a flash. Wasn't she nice?

She was incredibly nice! And wicked cool, too. I've met a few musicians of varying degrees of famousness over the past 10 years or so. Meeting Aimee was by far the best experience. I wish it could have lasted longer. I can't wait until she comes back -- maybe at the Egg for a Christmas show... Then, Katherine, you can take pictures again!

I would love it if she came back. It felt a little rushed too, but it was so worth it. I hope she comes back! That would be great! And the little girl chanting Aimee Mann was the cutest thing ever.

Aww! That sounds so cute! I didn't hear the little girl chanting -- but that is probably because Aimee put her arm around me for a picture and I was concentrating on not passing out...

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
