Amanda Palmer at Gothic Theatre, 9/21/12


Amanda Palmer wants to ask the audience a personal question. It's halfway through her set, and the crowd is understandably sweaty, aroused, and willing to answer anything she asks. "How many of you, in high school, were described as 'goth'?" To which the crowd, a smattering of youngish white kids, mostly female and bookish, responded with absolutely hysterical applause.
