Amanda Palmer – HMV Picture House, Edinburgh – 17.7.2013

22 Jul

On Wednesday i donned my wonderful TARDIS skirt and headed out to see Amanda Fucking Palmer!

I hadn’t been to a concert in a while and this was certainly the one to get me back into the swing of it! As ever, everything was wonderful: from her brilliant supports (Horndog Brass Band, Jherek Bischoff, Simple Pleasure and Bitter Ruin), to sweaty jumping around to Nirvana covers, to making cute new friends in the crowd and all the bits of glitter in between was just perfect. This was truly the best prelude to the house party… and unbelievably made me MORE excited!!! Thank you Amanda 🙂

IT’S ART BITCH.

I’ve been waiting for this video with such excitement ever since the glittery twitter photos showed up a while back… IT’S SO MUCH MORE AWESOME THAN I COULD EVER IMAGINE!

 

Only Amanda Palmer can turn me on and make me want to cry at the same time…

Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra – QMU, Glasgow – 25.10.2012

26 Oct

Last night i went to see Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra play Queen Margaret’s Union in Glasgow.

I jotted down this in my journal on the train ride home (i was too excited to do nothing!):

that. was. INCREDIBLE.

I enjoyed every single second, it was all i had imagined it would be and so much more. As ever my mind is blown. That fluttery-the-music-is-so-good-i-can-hardly-contain-this-intense-feeling is still tearing through my heart. The goosebumps have not faded from my body. My eyes are still wet tears. My ears are still ringing, and echo of wonder is singing through my brain and i’m smiling like an idiot.

Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra you have made me feel. And for that there is so amount of thanks i can express.

Instead all i can do is send you my love and hope it keeps you warm on this cold Glaswegian night!

 

And now for the SEXINESS!!!!!

WARNING these photos contain glitter, tight ass spangly pants, horns, Klaus Nomi corsets, and shitloads of sexy ass rockstars…. you have been warned!

 

I love it when there is a band playing while the fans are entering, it makes ME feel like a rockstar to enter to sexy live music!

 

Another wonderful thing about Amanda Palmer is that she always introduces her own support acts. It adds to the real humanity that she emanates, you can see just how much she is in love with the arts, with her art and it is pleasing that she in fact supports her own supports.

In this case she is introducing the magnificent Jherek Bischoff.

I’ve managed to find a clip of his “unique” performance of Eyes…. ba da ba um…..:

 

 

 

And what delight do we have next…. why it’s The Simple Pleasures.

 

 

And now…..

Meine Damen und Herren
Wie könnte ich meine Pulsadern aufschneiden, wenn ich nicht aufhören kann zu tanzen?
Unverfroren und ganz verloren, direkt aus New York City, the Grand Theft Orchester!!!!!!

 

Here is my clip of Smile (Pictures or it didn’t happen):

 

i love watching this and picking out my own images from the screen.

For those of you who don’t know, the images behind were part of the 7-image-upload task that Amanda set everybody going to the shows. Little did we know the images would be used in such an awesome way! With every beat of the drum a new image appears on the screen (and for each song (some songs) there is a corresponding image).

I’M NOT THE KILLING TYPE!

Here is a clip of The Killing Type i’ve found:

 

WON’T YOU MISS ME?

Musical chairs/instruments!

Missed me! Missed me!

What i love about these photos is, while Amanda and Michael are chasing each other round the stage, Chad and Jherek are just chilling in the centre, drinking beer, checking their instruments…

Catch me if you caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnn!

Here is a clip i’ve found of Missed Me… with musical instruments….. and Jim Bean!…. and Amanda’s Scottish accent!

 

I’ve found a clip of the stunningly emotional performance of Astronaut:

 

I love how photography can be so randomly manipulative… Amanda didn’t actual punch Chad in the face… but with this photo you wouldn’t know that!

Here is my little clip of Amanda covering Belle and Sebastian’s The Chalet Lines:

 

 

 

“Can I get some ukulele in the ears?” damn right you can Amanda!

 

These next set of pictures are all from, what is essentially my favourite part of the show, Bottomfeeder. Not only was i loving hearing it live but the performance level to this song was unbelievably beautiful. Amanda ran off stage to return moments later wearing a jacket with an organza train, at this point i didn’t know the purpose of this outfit other than it was pretty. The band struck up with Bottomfeeder and she made her way to the centre of the barrier. Midway through the song, at one of it’s peaks, she let herself fall into the welcoming crowd below and was passed around with the stream of organza billowing out behind her, engulfing everyone she passed. It was the moment that she was right in front of me that made this moment my favourite, staring eye to eye with this woman i idolize, this wonderful amazing woman grasping hold of my hand, passing over my head, organza trailing past my face, leaving me to feel.

I’ve found a clip of it. You can’t tell how amazing it was from this clip, but you can still be partially awestruck.

 

How does this woman keep on finding new ways to completely impress me. She will never run out of awesome.

Oh, Amanda i was one of those people you were talking about, so want to be involved in the moment but argh she is right there and i want to take a photo… argh… moment… capture… moment… argh i just touched Amanda Palmer and she is holding my hand…. argh….must capture this moment… IT WAS AMAZING!

Oh and i doodled this moment on the train (in my bored but frazzled and excited mind).

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t find a clip of it, but these next few photos are from the Yazoo’s In My Room cover:

And this is Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra in MY room! ^

I’ve managed to find a great clip of Melody Dean, including the best public service announcement ever, Amanda failing to strip out of her dress, an empty vessel, sexy ass dancing and Chad on trumpet!

 

Real rockstars drink wine!

I’ve managed to find a little clip of part of  Leed’s United:

 

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo don’t leave us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And they didn’t. Appearing back up in the gallery, they performed a small set up high!

Here is my little clip of them covering St.James Infirmary Blues:

 

 

 

 

 

And then they dissapeared and i had to go and miss the outside ninja gig 😦 and catch the train home, however next time they are coming to Edinburgh 😀 and then it is HOUSE PARTY TIME!!!!
