Scene News: Amanda Palmer’s “THE ART OF ASKING” book tour comes to MELBOURNE & SYDNEY!

PRESS RELEASE

hola comrades down under!!!

well, the book is out. it happened fast, i’ll tell you that. but it’s out, and it was a bestseller in both the US and the UK. i’m still dumbfounded that it happened so fast.

afp-death-pastei’m just about to head to your beautiful antipodean shores for a painfully short trip.

if you’ve already read the book and are caught up in the story, an update: anthony is alive, he had his bone marrow transplant about a week ago, and i’m trying not to leave his side for very long stretches. i’m planning on coming back to oz before too long so that i can also give love and fend off vegemite in perth, adelaide, brisbane, etc….but for now, i only had time enough to fit in book tour dates in sydney and melbourne. ROAD TRIP, everyone, road trip.

as i think many of you already know, i booked a gig with MONA FOMA ages ago (before anthony’s leukemia came out of remission) and that’s my first stop: if you want to come to tasmania to see me FRONT THE TASMANIAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, that’s on jan 18th! i’m doing a 90-minute set, with some all-new arrangements by the amazing jherek bischoff (you know him, he’s the dapper bassist and arranger from the grand theft orchestra). if you’ve never been to the MONA FOMA festival and you’ve always wanted to go…this is the one. hobart is beautiful, and something about the festival casts a spell of serious magic over the whole city. there’s a reason i’m doing the festival for the FOURTH TIME. (tickets here)

……………..

THEN i’ll be heading to SYDNEY for a show + book-signing at THE METRO, with special guests NEIL GAIMAN & TARA MOSS, who’s a new oz friend of mine (i recently recommended her book, “the fictional woman”, on my book-round-up of the year.

THEN i’ll be heading to MELBOURNE (ahhhh) for a show at the thornbury theatre. it’s a BEAUTIFUL classy-ass venue…some of you may have been there for “women of letters”, which i did with marieke hardy last year while i was working on the book.

if you missed the memo (or haven’t read the book yet), i wrote the bulk of the book in melbourne, in different cafes and bars in collingwood and the CBD (they’re mostly thanked in the back of the book, but shout outs to grub van, atomica, polly, arcadia, and thousand pound bend….).

i wish i could spend more time down under, but that’s gotta be it for this round.

my book tour in the states was really fucking beautiful….lots of connections, hugs, stories, and blanket forts. if you get tickets to either show, please follow me on twitter. i may have requests…

i love you all, matey weirdos
