Dresden Dolls debut Top 50, Amanda high school yearbook photos revealed!

Roadrunner touting the Dresden Dolls sophmore-slump-dodging Yes Virgina as the "#1 selling new release in the US":

NEW YORK, NY - The Dresden Dolls are on fire. Their sophomore album Yes, Virginia is the #1 selling new release in the U.S. this week as the album debuts at #42 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart with 19,000 albums sold. It also charted in the Top 10 on the Top Alternative chart, #1 on the CORE Alternative chart and #2 on the Top Internet chart. Yes, Virginia, is the follow-up to the 2004, critically acclaimed self-titled debut, which slowly built from selling 275 copies first week to a total of over 100,000 copies sold in the U.S. alone. The Dresden Dolls just completed a successful run of special appearances in select markets throughout the US, including a much buzzed about show at Stubbs during SXSW in Austin, TX and a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.  The band will tour North America this summer as the special guests on the Panic! At the Disco Tour.

The Compound 440r collective tsk-tsked OTD at the UV Protection/BIFF party for getting all emo about the Dresden Dolls show. (BTW: Pitchforked at 7.6?!) So, just to show we're not married to them or anything, we dug up not-really-all-that-embarassing photos from Amanda Palmer's sophomore year at Lexington High! Here's the best one:

"You mean she was born with eyebrows?"

Another weird coincidence: did anyone know she went to high school with Eugene Mirman? From the same yearbook:
