Amanda Palmer at Webster Hall - 9/11/12 (via theculturewhore)
Amanda Palmer

Yesterday, we had a ton of New Year's Eve show announcements. Here's another one: Amanda Palmer and her band the Grand Theft Orchestra, who just played a show at Webster Hall last night (9/11), will take over Terminal 5 on New Year's Eve (12/31). Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, September 21 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday, September 19 at noon.

Amanda's Webster Hall show last night was with The Simple Pleasure, Jherek Bischoff, and Ronald Reagan. If you weren't at the show, maybe you watched the webcast at Amanda's YouTube channel? The show was pretty wild and relied most heavily on material from her new album, Theatre Is Evil, for which the show was a release party for.

She also played a couple Dresden Dolls songs and did some covers, including Yaz's "In My Room," Wham!'s "Careless Whisper" and, wait for it... "Call Me Maybe!" During Theatre Is Evil track, "Bottomfeeder," Amanda dove into the crowd, draping the audience in a huge canvas that she was wearing as a skirt. If this is how Amanda celebrates a record release show, things are probably looking pretty nuts for New Year's Eve.

Her tour continues in DC tonight. An updated list of dates, a video of Amanda crowd surfing, and the setlist from last night's show are below.

If you are above 15 and find anything worthwhile in this it is time to reevaluate.

I generally think it is lame for people to shit on other people about music they like.

However, in the case of Amanda Palmer, I must say.... ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND!? This is anti-music! Garbage! Puke pubes!

This music is more pathetic than a jew who likes obama.

She's make me wants to quits musics

Nothing funnier than watching people fall for her trolling. She knows exactly what she is doing and knows it doesn't matter to her "fans." The negativity/pushback only allows her to pass off her bullshit "us vs. them" nonsense.

what a fuky.

Posted by Anonymous | September 13, 2012 2:08 AM

What kind of panties does Amanda Palmer prefer to wear?? Soiled, white, school, or y-bra?? Inquiring and persuasive minds want to know. I am guessing she wears soiled with a thick inch of crust on them.

Genesis P. is 1000 times more sexy than Amanda Palmer!!

Wow. These comments are pretty lame. Still, I remember how Steve Albini (who I am a fan of) wrote about he would record (DONATE his recording skills) to the Jesus Lizard simply because he liked them. Couldn't the same be said about Amanda's donated REGIONAL musicians?

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2012 12:09 AM

12:09,

I think that The Jesus Lizard would likely pay Albini to record them, if they had just independently sourced 1.2 million. Albini was in a band with the bass player from Jesus Lizard, so they are previously acquainted, and presumably friends.

Recording your friends as a favor is not the same situation as this cheapskate taking advantage of her fanbase.

I think she is really pretty in her own way.
