Aimee Mann

[FOLK] + SUN., DEC. 17

There are studies that show that humans like slow-motion because it allows us to notice things we might not otherwise see. The rich and layered sound of folk veteran Aimee Mann is supremely slow. On her latest album, Mental Illness, she refuses to sing at a speed that the listener is used to, and this allows one to fully take in the breadth of her voice and lyrics, as she croons about everyday melancholy. She’ll play Carnegie Lecture Hall along with indie-rocker Ted Leo, with whom Mann has collaborated in their two-person group The Both.

8 p.m.
4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.
$45-59.50. All ages.
