We're going to start this off with a huge tease. The biggest news
to come out of our interview with AMANDA PALMER can't be printed --
yet. But we'll let this much slip: you're going to be seeing a lot more
of her in the Boston area this fall, in a role you've never seen her play before, which may also be the role she was born for.
It's not like you couldn't see this coming -- we think the hint might have been when she wrote that song called "Please Drop Me" -- but now it's official. AMANDA PALMER: is now a free woman, at least where recording contracts are concerned. To prove it, she's offering a brand-new song, recorded last week, as a free mp3 download.
Hey, remember that new Amanda Palmer record we were telling you about? The one where her and her friend pretend to be a pair of conjoined twins called EVELYN EVELYN? This just in: it's apparently turned into the guest-star friendliest album since that Melvins record where Leif Garrett covered Smells Like Teen Spirit.
One of our favorite AMANDA PALMER yarns is EVELYN EVELYN, a duo with her singer-songwriter pal JASON WEBLEY, in which they pretend to be a pair of conjoined twins. Besides being adorable in a Geek Love kind of way, they also do some impressive collaborative accordion -- see the video above, a live performance of their signature tune "Elephant Elephant."
