SXSW: Amanda Palmer is everywhere
Amanda Palmer splashed into SXSW early in the week with a flurry of appearances, and it appears she's not done yet.
Palmer kicked off her visit with a "People of Letters" event on Tuesday, wherein she and a host of guests including her husband Neil Gaiman read letters focused on a theme.
Later, into the wee hours, she turned up for a "last call" type of event at Arlyn Studios to close out a RocNation party with a brief solo set that included her "Ukulele Anthem," a singalong cover of Radiohead's "Creep," before moving to the piano for the peppery "The Killing Type" and the quietly devastating "Bed Song" before bidding the mesmerized crown a good night.
Hours later, she took the Convention Center Wednesday afternoon for the panel "The Anatomy of Amanda Fucking Palmer: An Inside Look," and is plotting a "ninja" outdoor event for Thursday at 6PM, according to her Tumblr blog.
Should no other surprises surface, Palmer is expected to cap her Austin visit with another panel on Friday on "Selling Albums in a Spotify World: Non-Traditional Strategies," and a performance later at the Paste party.
