Return to Amanda Palmer

 

Death Becomes Her


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.
