TED LEO sent me an email in October. "Hey, do you want to organize a house show this fall?" he asked. "HYFR," I replied.
A few emails and phone calls were made over the past month, and last night he arrived to play a set in my friend Mitch's unassuming living room in Brighton. The stop in Boston was part of a week-long run of house shows and non-traditional venue spaces that Leo embarked on after several months of touring with Aimee Mann this fall.

Can you believe it's been almost a year since TED LEO played his impromptu set at Occupy Boston? Wild. On Saturday, the legendary punk rock singer-songwriter returns to Boston, this time to share a bill with AIMEE MANN at the Berklee Performance Center. Mann is touring in support of her most recent record Charmer, released in September on SuperEgo Records.
