January 21. Thanks to her nearly two subsequent decades as an acclaimed solo artist, Aimee Mann has long shaken the one-hit-wonder tag she’d had from her time with ’80s pop quartet ’Til Tuesday. Since then, such lauded albums as Lost in Space (2002), The Forgotten Arm (2005), and @#%&*! Smilers (2008) have cemented her renown as a crafter of mature and evocative songs and won her the admiration of Elvis Costello, Squeeze’s Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, and others. This show at the Bearsville Theater marks Mann’s first 2012 area appearance. (The Bearsville Sessions V Band celebrates the British Invasion January 13; Langhorne Slim rides in January 28.) 8pm. $25, $35, $50. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; www.bearsvilletheater.com.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
