The Dresden Dolls – Slide

fresh off an amazing performance at Coachella, as well as a ton of other projects, Amanda Palmer (one half of über-amazing Dresden Dolls) is returning to L.A.with a sold out show tonight at the Troubadour. Palmer, accompanied by performance art troupe The Danger Ensemble, gave one of my favorite performances last year at the Henry Fonda, when in the space of two hours or so she pretended to sexually assault Katy Perry with Margaret Cho, resurrected herself from the dead, and welcomed my favorite author of all time, Neil Gaiman, to the stage to read a recital that he had written specifically for her. not a bad night. she’s poetically histrionic, but never slips into tediousness, always clever and amusing, and you should all be jealous because  she stood right next to me during Leonard Cohen’s captivating performance at Coachella.
