If you only know Amanda Palmer as one-half of provocative punk cabaret
The Dresden Dolls, you really don’t know her at all. The fiery
vixen is the epitome of a renaissance woman, releasing a critically
acclaimed new solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer? which was produced
by Ben Folds, as well as a coffee-table book of the same name featuring
photos of the songwriter in various states of, well, deathly repose.
Each photo is accompanied by a short story written by her boyfriend,
acclaimed sci-fi writer Neil Gaiman. And that was just this year. Wednesday,
November 11, she brings her curious stage show to the Higher Ground
Ballroom, supported and backed by Brooklyn’s dynamic Nervous Cabaret.
