Amanda Palmer

+ Support from Andrew O’Neill

‘a fearless one-woman creative typhoon’ The Guardian

Half of the cult-favourite punk-cabaret duo the Dresden Dolls and alt-rock icon Amanda Palmer has long been a controversial figure. Since her beginnings in the band and now as a solo artist, she has been keeping up a non-stop schedule of releasing art, dressing up like a conjoined twin, doing things that make outraged think-piece writers 'jiggle with glee’ (The Guardian) for many years. A previous collaborator with music luminaries such as Ben Folds and St Vincent’s Annie Clark, Palmer is a polarising public figure with a fiercely dedicated fanbase. Audiences can leave their mild emotions at the door.
