I went to an Amanda Palmer ninja gig today. It was pretty fucking awesome. As previously mentioned, it took place in the theater where I currently want to live, breathe and die. They actually said that the theater was being forced to closed unless people volunteered, so I heartily signed up. I don't care if I have another schedule and still no way to make money. I want that theater open.
Oh, right! Music! I know she played "Oasis" and "Hallelujah" but I didn't know the names of the other songs because I'm a horrible fan. She and Jason Webley did play an Evelyn Evelyn song that was quite good. The premise reminded me of "Sisters." For those of you unawares:
The one on the left is George Clooney's aunt, BTW. And if you liked that, you should watch the version with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye
We had pretty good seats and I took a couple of pictures. I wanted to buy tickets for the actual EE show tomorrow night, but I have a midterm. Oh well.
During the performance, Amanda came down into the audience and sat right next to me for a while! That was pretty awesome. I didn't say anything, but still a very cool story. She also signed my friend's tit (don't worry, I have pics!) and would have signed my notebook if the guy behind us hadn't cut.
Speaking of sisters, I kind of pissed mine off today :/ I'll go bury my shame with more Buffy.
