Friday Follies: Aimee Mann & Mr. Grinch

By December 21, 2007Friday Follies

Aimee Mann wrapped up her Christmas concert tour this week at the Birchmere in Alexandria, running through a very funny variety show with a comedian, Paul F. Tompkins, hilarious songstress Nellie McKay, rapping Chanukah Fairy, a movie, etc. Much fun, even with her voice being shot, although the choice to mock fan Michael Chertoff was curious. Rude, really… (Pretty good review here.)

A talented band, of course, with a great Mann-Tompkins duet on “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” So this week’s Friday Follies is a year-old version of the tune from last year’s Conan O’Brien show, with Grant Lee Phillips doing the narration. Definitely more cheerful than her “I Was Thinking I Could Clean Up for Christmas.”
