June 25th Los Angeles Brigade
« on: May 20, 2009, 02:57:12 AM »

COMRADES!​!​!​!​!​!​!​

Amanda has announced a show for the end of June in Los Angeles.

***Los Angeles, CA***
Thursday, June 25th
The Troubadour
8pm


As most of us know Amanda is going to take some well deserved time off from touring soon, and this might be our last chance to see her for a long while.

So what do we do?

MAKE IT EPIC!

If you have never been to an Amanda Palmer or Dresden Dolls show, then you are in for a treat, the fans like to pull together a Brigade. Are you a fan? Then join in the fun! Let your mind explode with ideas that would enhance the show, and get involved! Don't have any ideas? We'll brain storm, there is millions of ways to get involved! We can have ukulele sing-a-longs, you can do performance art, you can dress up in that really weird outfit that you've always loved but never had the guts to wear out of the house and pass out flowers, we can blow bubbles, we can read our eulogies for our dearly departed Amanda, we can collectively "WOO!". You know I'll be there with my post-it notes of love.

We all know that the line is going to be long, and boring so lets spice it up and have some fun! Amanda will love us for it!

Please contact me if you would like to get involved with all the fun, or just to say "Hi" and that your going to the show!

I would suggest having some sort of theme, so that people can have a basis to work around

Comrades!

Its time to organize.

Amanda has announced a show for the end of June in Los Angeles.

***Los Angeles, CA***
Thursday, June 25th
The Troubadour
8pm


As most of us know Amanda is going to take some well deserved time off from touring soon, and this might be our last chance to see her for a long while.

So what do we do?

MAKE IT EPIC!

There is going to be a very long line that will start to form hours before the show.  Such lines can be very boring.  But my friends, our line will be no such thing.  I know we all want to be at the front of it, so we can be front and center for Amanda's show.  So really, what is the point of just standing there?  LETS PLAY!

Things to bring and stir ideas:

-Your self, dressed colorfully and strangely. (think vintage dresses, glitter, pigtails, bright wigs, top hats, masks, vests and fishnets)
-Parasols, Amanda loves them!
-Bubbles, and bubble machines
-Any small instruments, including kazoos, ukuleles, and toys
-Jump ropes, and skip-its (remember those?)
-Side walk chalk
-Flowers


We'll sing songs, we'll blow bubbles, we'll play hop scotch.  I bet Amanda will come play with us!  We'll play all afternoon long, and save the best seats in the house for our selves.

When? Thursday June 25th.  Doors are at 8, so we should meet up at 3 p.m.  I will be there starting at noon, feel free to come early!!

Where? The Troubadour.  9081 Santa Monica Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069.

Don't forget to buy your tickets ASAFP! You can do that here, http://amandapalmer.net/tour they are only $20!

Email me to RSVP. jessydaprile@gmail.com  I'll send you more info, and we can brain storm on whatever more wonderful ideas you might have!

This will be wonderful, this will be epic, this will be magic!
Lets make it happen!

Love,
JessyLou

sooo... on the mailer she sent out about what she plans to do for the rest of the year, etc, and her tour dates...
when she listed the troubadour, it said "intimate show"
what exactly does that mean? is the troubadour a really small space? or does it just mean the show isn't going to be extravagant?

just curious!

I have yet to go to the troubadour, but i know its a smaller venue.

And she is getting more cozy with the fans, did you hear about the bathroom confessionals in NYC tonight?!

Bet you she comes and plays jump rope with us!
