(THIS IS AN OFFICIAL THING! and public post, with a thanks to all the patrons...)
HOLA MY LOVES.
it worked! we captured the full beauty of the dresden dolls live at coney island amphitheater with SIX FANTASTIC CAMERAS and brilliant sound. includes bonus footage of the crowd, the brigade AND the amazing opening band, brooklyn's own PWR BTTM.
thank you so so so SO much to everyone who *came* - over 10,000 of you! - to the dolls shows in kingston, boston and coney island....AND those of you who tuned in via the webcast. each night was so goddamned unforgettably special. the dresden dolls - i.e. the magical cosmic rock love explosion of spaceship earth punk cabaret power ALL ONE that is me & mr brian viglione - man...it's a thing to behold.
so many people told us that the band has just gotten better - since we've both matured so much as people, as musicians, as souls. we agree. we loved playing every minute of these shows - we still got it, people. and you give us a reason to explode.
so here it is: you can view the ENTIRE coney show here: https://huzza.io/amandapalmer/live-stream/the-dresden-dolls-live-from-coney-island
