Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra: Kickstarter campaign for new album, book and art show

DIY punk cabaret singer Amanda Palmer has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of her first studio album in four years. It's a multimedia undertaking, including a book and an art show. She will be backed by The Grand Theft Orchestra (Michael McQuilken, Chad Raines, and Jherek Bischoff). The goal was $100,000. Right now she has received pledges for $355,307 ...

TO KICK OFF THIS YEAR OF MADNESS, in which we'll be touring ALL OVER THE WORLD, we're going to unveil the new material and the original large-format album art/paintings LIVE in six select cities: BOSTON, NEW YORK, LA, SAN FRANCISCO, LONDON and BERLIN. in every city, we've PARTNERED with a local ART GALLERY or EVENT SPACE, where we'll hang the art on beautiful walls for y'all to come and admire in person. then we'll have a special kick-off ART OPENING just for kickstarter supporters who back the event. we'll load you down with odd gifts, hugs, and drinks (if you're of age...if not, root beer throwdown) & the band will play a special acoustic set in the Art Space. we're keeping these openings limited to about 100-150, even in spaces where we could fit more people. one of my favorite things about this is that i'll get to MEET you guys in person, and thank you for your backing with a kiss. i'm hoping that our night together, among the art, making acoustic music with the band and sharing wine, will be totally fucking magical & unforgettable.
