Like they did last year, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo will be playing holiday shows this December. They play together as The Both, but these shows are billed as "The Aimee Mann and Ted Leo Christmas Show." Past collaborator Jonathan Coulton will be there, and more "very special guests" are promised too.
Two of the shows are in NYC: December 10 at Town Hall and December 12 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets go on sale Friday (9/25) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/23) at noon.
Aimee and Ted's also recently sang a Lincoln Chaffee campaign song on Conan. As Rolling Stone points out, the song was...
sung to the tune of Fine Young Cannibals' "She Drives Me Crazy." "Used to be / Republican / Switched to Dem in 2010 / The pride of Rhode Island / His horses' hooves were stylin' / Wants the metric system to the U.S. / A plan with zero gram's chance of success," Mann and Leo sing. "He's Lincoln Chafee / For President / You don't have to vote for him / Just get him to 1 percent."
