by Amanda Palmer

Delenn This is a new version of Amanda's original "Theatre is Evil" album, exclusively showcasing her impressive piano skills as well as her vocal prowess in a single instrument, one woman show that blows the audience away with its raw power and stripped down interpretation of these now classic songs. So fresh, so welcome. So AFP of Amanda. Favorite track: Want It Back.

Carsten Pieper Triggered by the release of her new album (There Will Bo No Intermission) I revisited my much to long wishlist, because there are still too many Amanda-items still not in my collection. I cross-checked this one with the related studio album (Theatre Is Evil) and got stuck with this more intimate versions. Just Amanda and her piano, works always for me :-)

this is PIANO IS EVIL. a live piano+voice endeavor based on my 2012 kickstarter-funded album "Theatre is Evil", which i recorded with a full band: The Grand Theft Orchestra (bass! drums! guitars! horns! strings! SYNTTTHHHHS!).

the original “Theatre is Evil” is available for FREE/pay-what-you-want at amandapalmer.net. it was originally funded by almost 25,000 people on kickstarter and i am forever grateful for their backing. PIANO IS EVIL was made possible by over 8,000 people supporting my patreon page in October 2016.

if you are enjoying this album, please consider joining the patreon so i can make more unfettered art/music/writing/THINGS, as i want, when i want. it would mean the world to me. go to: patreon.com/amandapalmer
