Amanda Palmer in Brooklyn in May (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Amanda Palmer

Comic Book Club Live, a free, live podcast recording event has moved from its previous home of Pianos to fellow LES club Fontana's, and TONIGHT (6/26)'s show features Kurt Braunohler and musical guest Amanda Palmer. Show starts at 7PM.

Last night, Kurt Braunohler did his weekly Hot Tub show at Littlefield with Kristin Schaal that also featured UK comedian Simon Amstell who who plays SWEET tonight (6/26) at Ella Lounge in the East Village. The show, hosted by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon writer Seth Herzog, will also have John F. O'Donnell and Questlove as guests. Show starts at 8:30PM. Simon Amstell's Numb residency begins July 10th.

Friday (6/29) is Kurt Braunohler's live talk show Night of the Living at Littlefield which, as you may remember, has Amanda Palmer as a guest. Tim Heidecker was supposed to be the other guest but he had to drop out so Judah Friedlander will sub in his place. Tickets are still available to this.

It's a busy week for Amanda. Wednesday (6/27) is her sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with her band The Grand Theft Orchestra, and on Thursday she plays the opening of her art show at Momenta Art which is only open to high-level contributors to her Kickstarter campaign. Amanda and her band will be performing a full acoustic set that night, and her bassist Jherek Bischoff will be performing solo as well. Bischoff will open MHOW too, as well as all upcoming tour dates.

Then on Saturday (6/30), Amanda & Her Magical Ukulele will perform an intimate show at the newly-opened top floor of the South Street Seaport Museum. Tickets are $55 and $125 and still on sale, and proceeds benefit the museum. Ticket price includes open Brooklyn Brewery bar.

Anybody going to all five Amanda Palmer events this week?

Lesbian thespians rocking out wildly with heavy makeup and large egos generally make me get indigestion.

Amanda Palmer is old. Brian Viglione on the other hand is eternal.
