RAHWAY — Singer/songwriter Aimee Mann will perform on the mainstage at the Union County Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, April 23, at 8 p.m. Tickets, ranging from $25-$69.60, go on sale to the general public tomorrow at 11 a.m., but there is a pre-sale available today using a code that can be found on UCPAC’s Facebook page.
Mann released her latest album, Charmer, last year. ”The first song I wrote for the album was called ‘Charmer,’ so that’s kind of what started it,” she says. “And there are obviously songs that aren’t really on that topic, but it was a thing that I kept coming back to, because I do think people who are super-charming are really interesting. And I see how charm is on a continuum that goes all the way from people who can talk you out of anything to people who are manipulative to people who are almost a little sinister. They’re usually people who you really like being around in the beginning, because they’re really good at creating an impression that perhaps is tailor-made for you, and that’s very seductive.”
She has released eight solo albums, beginning with 1993′s Whatever, and contributed music to the soundtrack of Magnolia and other films. She has also appeared on several television shows, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The West Wing and Portlandia.
Tickets are available from ucpac.org or by calling the box office at 1-732-499-8226.
