    Default Amanda Palmer

    I guess this is as good a time as any for her to get her own thread. Her show is going to be streaming live in a few, currently the opener is on.

    Amanda Palmer live in Dublin...now.

    Went to the Evelyn Evelyn show at the Largo on Thursday. It was an awesome show. If she comes anywhere near you, you should check it out.

    The show is much better. I didn't even get the CD until after the show, and I must admit, it is a bit of a let down.

    They actually play the show as conjoined twins...piano, accordian, guitar and more.

    I totally agree. I dont care very much for the EE cd except for the first song. I saw her in SF on 5/22. EE live was awesome and very entertaining. The show was really long too. Amanda's set was a mess she only did a couple songs and didnt really know what she wanted to play but it was still okay. I wish Zoe would have been there. It was cool that she hangsout after to sign all of our stuff, I got my WKAP book signed.

    Nice. I've loved this chick for years. You guys really think her record was that bad? I thought there were some really great songs on it, but yeah, maybe not enough. Good news is she plays some Dresden Dolls songs live. I was pleasantly surprised to see that at an Edinburgh show last Aug. No Brian, but we did get some Neil Gaiman on stage for a few readings.

    The solo album is great. I was assuming that PT was referring to the EE album.

    A set list for the twins goes something like this:

    Evelyn Evelyn
    Have you seen my sister Evelyn
    The trajic events of September
    ChickenMan
    You only want me 'cause you want my sister
    Elephant Elephant
    Lean on Me (Bill Withers cover)
    My Space

    Love Will Tear us apart (Joy Division Cover)

    Yes, Amanda's set is a bit of a mess, but I think it's just an expression of her new found freedom.

    It could be anything. She took a couple of requests, and then just played whatever she wanted on Thursday.

    She played

    Icarus (Jason Webly) with Jason Webly
    Runs in the Family
    Missed me
    High and Dry (Radiohead cover)
    Do You Swear To Tell The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth So Help Your Black Ass?
    Electric Blanket with Jason
    Drinking song with everyone

    It seems like I'm forgetting one, maybe it'll come to me later. The set lists are different from every show.

    WTF? I didn't even know about EE. I thought you guys were talking about Who Killed Amanda Palmer. I've got some catching up to do.

    The solo show I saw was a lot of her solo songs, some Dresden Dolls mixed in, her sister came on stage and sang with her, then Neil read some out of their book that goes along w/ the album. The UK fans LOVE her. Packed out a pretty big venue.

    She's a fantastic performer, but I don't think she's released anything consistently good since The Dresden Dolls S/T. Kinda feel like she's taken over Tori's role of bringing out obsessed, crazy, fat goth chicks everywhere.

    When I see Regina Spektor, I think of a little Jewish girl who received too much encouragement from her parents for being "eccentric." It's cute in the same way that a kid with absolutely no artistic skills tries to draw you a picture, but it always ends up looking like a hotdog with dicklegs.

    Pretty much. A lot of those fans scare me.

    S/T is amazing, Yes Virginia is half really good, half forgettable, No Virginia and the solo album each have a few good songs, and Evelyn Evelyn is awful but she's one hell of a live performer, especially when with Brian. Covers are usually very cool (War Pigs, Creep, Two Headed Boy, etc).

    I liked her cover of Lua a lot. Conor Oberst should only be allowed to write songs for other people, and promise never to perform anything himself.

    Yeah. She's coming out with an all Radiohead ukulele cover album this summer. High and Dry will be on it, but in LA she did it on piano. There is a youtube clip of it Here:

    I was.

    To be honest, Amanda's already hit her peak. The s/t DD record and Yes, Virginia aren't going to be topped anytime soon. No, Virginia's a pretty mediocre b-sides record, WKAP is a respectable solo effort but also mediocre for the most part (besides Ampersand which is an incredible song), but the EE record is just fucking awful.

    I've always loved the juxtaposition in Amanda's music between the fantastic piano playing that's more magic than skill and her lyrics, mainly when they're personal and introspective (not heavy handed like Guitar Hero). EE is a complete rejection of all of that and it's depressing to say the least.
