Revenge of the Book-Eaters

Next Saturday (8/26/06) we are going to a charity event called the "Revenge of the Book-Eaters." The event raising money for the 826 Writing Centers, non-profit writing/tutoring centers. What attracted my attention to this event is that Aimee Mann will be playing. I have been an Aimee Mann fan since my wife's Godson played one of her songs when we visited him a year and a half ago. The entertainment for the evening includes:
"Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley frontwoman), Jake Gyllenhaal (actor), Aimee Mann (singer-songwriter), The Mountain Goats (prolific songwriter and musician John Darnielle), Dave Eggers (best-selling author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius), Sarah Vowell (best-selling author and This American Life contributor), and John Roderick (The Long Winters), Andy Richter (comedian and your host for the evening)." - From www.826LA.org
We can't wait! We have been waiting for Aimee Mann to come to our area for awhile now and the whole event sounds fun.
