Aimee Mann and Ted Leo

Price: $25

When: Ended 11/17/12

Where: First Avenue Mainroom

On this year’s “Charmer,” Aimee Mann returns to a pop sound, a synth-driven 1980s vibe reminiscent of the Cars. The title track is built around a catchy keyboard lick. She teams with James Mercer of the Shins on the breakup song “Living a Lie.” And then there’s the single “Labrador.” To fully appreciate it, check out the video, a parody of her 1985 breakthrough hit video “Voices Carry” with Til Tuesday; it features “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm and rocker Ted Leo, who will open this concert solo.
