"I keep looking up and expecting to see snipers," she joked. As reported here first yesterday, AMANDA PALMER arrived at Occupy Boston yesteday afternoon dressed like an anarchist field general for a ninja gig on Dewey Square. After urging her fellow Boston musicians to join the Occupation -- and to bring their fans -- she played a short set that included Neutral Milk Hotel's "Two Headed Boy" (in homage to Jeff Mangum's serenading of #OccupyWallStreet), Rebecca Black's "Friday," and the olde English protest-folk "The World Turned Upside Down."
Of the three, by far the most relevant to the proceedings was the Rebecca Black song -- which Palmer has rewritten from the point of view of a truck-stop hooker. I'm not sure I've heard a better protest song this year.
