Live Review: Amanda Palmer’s …No Intermission had Sydney in tears

February 25, 2020

It seems fitting to start this review with a confession – I knew very little about Amanda Palmer before this night.

Reflecting on the splendour, beauty and fun of Woodford Folk Festival’s New Years celebrations

January 9, 2017

The last two days of Woodford were both exhausting and exhilarating. The weather didn’t always comply with the fun times, truly being the case when it’s over 30 degrees 6 in the morning.

The worldly sounds continue during days three and four of the Woodford Folk Festival

January 1, 2017

A welcoming sun of the stinking hot variety greeted us for these next two days at Woodfordia. This was to be expected, but it was essentially a nice little bit of festival-ness in a festival that is invariably unique.

Live Review: Amanda Palmer And The Grand Theft Orchestra + Jherek Bischoff + Die Roten Punkte – The Enmore Theatre (14.09.13)

September 15, 2013

Amanda Palmer has an intensity that colours her musical career as much as it does the relationship with her fans. We love it.
