Amanda Palmer: Live at Kickstarter

Earlier this week the ever-mysterious, sometimes a Dresden Doll, goth-pop-satirist-enchantress Amanda Palmer dropped by the Kickstarter office. We chatted about life, Neil Gaiman's now infamous banana, and their upcoming tour, before Amanda treated us to a private performance on the couch, during which she not only played us her musical retort to a message board debate on Lady Gaga's role in the art world (above), but also conjured Robert Smith by way of "In Between Days" (that's below). And then last, but certainly not least, she launched in to her rendition of Rebecca Black's sung from the perspective of a truck stop hooker. Yeah, a truck stop hooker. Watch that here. (Warning, explicit language!)
