Collectively and individually, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have more years of musical experience under their belts than most. Over the years, they became friendly, getting lunch when Ted was in Los Angeles or Aimee was in New York, guesting on this or that comedy or music show together, etc., but they truly bonded over a misspelled word and a hashtag on Twitter, “#dumbie.” Inspired by the folksy but edgy rock melodicism and spooky, soulful atmosphere of songs like “Honesty is no Excuse” (which they, in fact, began covering), Aimee sent Ted the stem of a new song just one week after their first tour together had ended. They began writing together, and “The Both” (originally called #BOTH, because it made them laugh) was born.
On Wednesday, The Both are performing a headlining concert in Austin at Mohawk. Opening the show will be Lemuria. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
