that would be awesome! would love to meet you! dress warm, though, as it's ass-chappin' cold here. 14 degrees with a wind-chill of -1 currently.

we're setting up an indoor shrine to our dearly departed amanda, and an improvised memorial "service" in which we hope to involve unsuspecting audience members (many of whom will be shocked to learn of her death and at the accompanying overt displays of emotion).

did you go to the chi-town show last night?

yeah it was fun..altho I guess maybe sharing the review I posted on progressiveears would be worth doing..and I'll preface by saying some of it could be due to never seeing her or The Dolls before.


The show itself was a mixed bag. She puts on a good show. Quite different than most shows I've seen, except I can't get past how similar the approach is to the 2 JENNY DALTON shows I saw this past year with the VISUAL ARTISTS and THEATRICS.

Otoh,

a) the sound coming from the attached venue "The Entry" really scrued this show up in a lot of ways. First Ave does not SOUND PROOF their walls. The bass was constantly being heard throughout the show. The security people claim it is just due to the fact a lot of the concert we were hearing was so quiet, but I call bs on that to a point due to the fact I've attended I dunno 15 or more concerts there and that's the 1st time I've ever noticed that.

b) I can't get past the fact she LIP-SYNCED "Guitar Hero" which is one of my favorites from the new album, and maybe the song I was looking forward to most live. Instead, she did a dance with a guitar and the actors/ensemble that are her traveling group.

c) she also did a cover of Bon Jovi's "Livin on a Prayer"..frankly, even she can't make that song worth hearing again.

But overall, the energy and showmanship..along with the kind of show (and performance art) that Amanda and her group put on was entertaining. She did play pretty much all of her new album, albeit mostly stripped down with her at the (keyboard) piano and a violin and cellist. She also covered Prince's "Purple Rain" in the encore which was cool and fitting as she talked about being a huge fan of that album as a kid. She also apparently got Neil Gaiman to read the little "Who Killed Amanda Palmer" bit written on the back of the album art, via telephone over the p.a. which was cool. I guess her and the other 11 in her touring group got to stay at Neil's home the night before (Gaiman's Menomenie, WI, which is a small town not too far from the Twin Cities). Neil and Amanda are friends and he and her put together a book that is a companion piece of mostly older/classic-styled photographs of Amanda, that is due out in January I guess.

I would go for her going out on tour with instead of a theatrical group, AN ORCHESTRA or Chamber ensemble instead; therefore, many of those pieces with the horns and the vocal-chanting could be done live, at least more similarly arranged to the album-versions. But I can imagine the cost of them vs the performance artists she has is quite a bit higher given she even asked for donations for them since they are on the tour more-or-less Pro-Bono. I bought $60 merch tho, so I can feel I *donated* anyway

kyle, think of the lip-sync with tongue-in-cheek and you're halfway there (oh-oh, livin' on a prayer)

mandolin, you didn't make it up? i'm fairly certain we would have spotted each other. :disappointment:

eudora f, there will be brigade pics, promise.
