So one of my top three favourite living songwriters has spent the past few weeks not forty miles from where I live. Exciting, yeah? Quite. Amanda Palmer’s been hanging out in Edinburgh, tweeting, loving Neil Gaiman and performing as one of two conjoined twins who happen to play the accordion at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, and I’ve been so broke I couldn’t go to any of the dates.
That’s not so bad when you consider I had tickets to see her perform with her new backing band, the Grand Theft Orchestra, at The Arches in Glasgow on Friday night.
Thus begins my most recent post on threeawesometumblrs, a new collab blog I’m doing with some lovely nerdy friends of mine. You should go read it some time!
