Amanda Palmer

Nervous Cabaret are opening for Amanda Palmer on this tour. They're also her backing band. Byran just caught the show in Maine. He writes:

at this show, Amanda sent out a twitter message saying she would have people go in a room and confess anything they wanted to her before the show. it was a janitor's closet. a small line of people formed and they got to spent a couple minutes each with her in there talking about whatever they wanted. the lights stayed on, as far as I know.

AP introduced the Nervous Cabaret at the beginning of their set Then she began her own set at the red piano out in the front lounge of the venue before leading the band through the crowd to the stage. Throughout the show, a friend was doing an original painting, which was auctioned off at the end, I believe it went for about $250 in the end. Apparently they're doing this at every show (sorta Cloud Cultish, no?) [editor's note: yes].

Amanda began her encore by playing the ukulele while standing on the bar, then once again leading the band and crowd to the stage for a couple more songs. She then stuck around (along with a very patient venue staff) until everybody who wanted one got an autograph, photo, and hug.

The 11/14 show at MHOW is already sold out. I'm sure it'll be an even livelier one, there's lots of stuff to climb on there.

Tonight's show at Music Hall of Williamsburg is sold out (but where there's a will there's a way?). More pictures from Maine below....

Amanda Palmer is a Scientologist.

Neil Gaiman is a Scientologist and is underwriting Scientology. The Scientologists list Neil Gaiman in the Cornerstone Newsletter along with Mary Gaiman, as contributing $35,000.00 in 2009. Being listed in the Cornerstone Newsletter means you are in good-standing with the cult.

In 2010, Mary Gaiman was awarded the "Gold Humanitarian Award" for her contribution of $500,000.00 to Scientology. This is significant because Mary Gaiman continues to be Neil Gaiman’s business partner in The Blank Corporation, which is now Neil Gaiman's Scientology front and how he pays the cult.

Gaiman is also the "Vitamin Heir" of Scientology. The Gaiman family owns G&G Vitamins which reaps 6 million a year from selling The Purification Rundown Vitamins.

Gaiman's two sisters, Claire Edwards and Lizzie Calciole are not just high-ranking Scientologists, they are the head of RECRUITING and the head of Wealden House, the Scientology stronghold in East Grinstead. These two cannot associate with Neil unless he is in good standing.

Amanda Palmer would not be allowed anywhere near this royal family of Scientology unless she was also a Scientologist.
