Stereogum’s been enamored with the Dresden Dolls since the “Girl Anachronism” and “Coin-Operated Boy” videos.
Last night Amanda Palmer went solo (sans Kabuki make-up!) at Joe’s Pub. While I didn’t make the show, Jeff filled me in immediately after. Amanda’s Brechtian riot grrrl shtick went over really well with the NY hipsters, and Edward Norton was there too. Jeff took the photo below.
Her set included covers of Nine Inch Nails, Regina Spektor, and Antony & The Johnsons. She did not, however, unveil her version of this Psychedlic Furs classic, which will appear on the fortchoming High School Reunion comp:
The Dresden Dolls – “Pretty In Pink” (MP3 Link Expired)
And while we’re at it, here are The Dresden Dolls live in Paris, covering Queens Of The Stone Age.
The Dresden Dolls – “No One Knows (Live 6-22-05)” (MP3 Link Expired)
You can download four DD album cuts (including “Girl Anachronism”) at their site.
What do you think of the P. Furs cover? I think Amanda and Brian do it justice.
