Amanda Palmer: x-treme cow-tipping, exotic religions, and . . . Aberdeen City?

Amanda Palmer's not-quite-solo show with her BF(s)F Aberdeen City as her "backing band" quietly went on sale and quickly sold out. We sent her an email to be, like, WTF? You and AbCity? Her response, which, of course, is probably not meant to be read completely literally:

I'm in my "experimental" phase, meaning that in addition to my forrays into professional velvet-painting, exxxtreme cow-tipping & studying esoteric forms of judaism and the like, I have been playing with different bands. Aberdeen City are one of my favorite groups to come out of boston is ages and I've always wanted to try to collaborate with them. We're going to arrange a handful of my new songs and play some covers. You know, nickelback, pearl jam, skynyrd, standard bar-band kinda fare. I'm also going to play on some of their tunes and play some classic amanda solo stuff sans band.

There you have it. Showtime is tomorrow night at the Middle East. Still a couple pairs left on Craig's List if you're desperate.
