Aimee Mann and Ted Leo

8 p.m. Tuesday, November 13. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.



Aimee Mann and Ted Leo just may be the most inspired musical pairing of the year. She is a moody chanteuse with a bitchin' guitar and velvety voice. He is a nasal, outspoken singer with sharp humor. Together, they'll activate their yin and yang Wonder Twin powers to offer audiences a show that's sure to be cerebral, melodious...and perhaps even a bit potty-mouthed, if Leo's last Pharmacists-less show here was any indication. Staked: Aimee Mann was the only musician to play the Bronze on Buffy the Vampire Slayer who had a line. In season seven, she said, "Man, I hate playing vampire towns."
