- Amanda Palmer is soloing from the Dresden Dolls and performing with The Danger Ensemble. If you've seen Alotta Boutte and Calamity Lulu perform to "Coin-Operated Boy," then you're familiar with the Dresden Dolls. Their music does seem to be very much appreciated by those in the burlesque community. So check out the show, which is next Monday, December 15, at Bimbo's 365 Club. Tickets are $25, doors at 7pm, show at 8. I'm going with Josie Starre and her friend. Yay, music! :-)
