Last night, Zac and I went to New Orleans to see Amanda Palmer perform. She rocks a piano like no other. Vermillion Lies (sisters named Kim and Zoe), opened. Their style is very circus/folk twisted with cabaret. I really enjoyed them. Their actual performance was awesome, as if they were putting on a play. They used a typewriter and gas can as instruments. It was crazy.
Amanda’s performance was better than I expected. She’s so involved with her audience. She played a few songs before climbing above Zac and me on the balcony. Then she danced with Kim and Zoe on the bar while playing a ukulele.
I met her after the show and she signed one of the shirts Zac bought me. I wanted to get a good picture with her, but the room was so dark.
