Better than: The cast party for a high school musical production of “The Crucible”

Amanda Palmer's debut album posed the Twin Peaks-inspired question Who Killed Amanda Palmer;

I walked into her sold-out Friday night show asking Who Is Amanda

Palmer? Yes, I'd heard of The Dresden Dolls, the punk cabaret duo that

made her famous, I also recall tweets about her record-breaking Kickstarter campaign,

and I knew the writer Neil Gaiman, although I had no idea he was Mr.

Amanda Palmer. The rest, I would discover through her music and fans, is

a woman who makes a hell of a lot of people really fucking happy.
