Knitting Factory Presents
An Evening With Amanda Palmer
Singer-songwriter and New York Times bestselling author Amanda Palmer returns to Spokane for a performance at the Knitting Factory Concert House on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018.
Performing everything from solo and Dresden Dolls’ favorites to unreleased new material on a grand piano and humble ukulele, audiences can expect surprises and special guests as Palmer brings her “An Evening With Amanda Palmer” performance with special guest Jason Webley to the Knitting Factory. Presale tickets go on sale on December 6th to Palmer’s Patreon subscribers and public ticket on sale starts on December 8th.
Palmer recently released two highly political singles: “In Harm’s Way”, which addresses the mounting refugee crisis, and a poignant cover of Pink Floyd’s “Mother”, which was accompanied by an ambitious film clip in which Palmer breastfeeds the 45th president. A 7” vinyl of these two songs is currently for sale with parts of the proceeds benefitting Because We Carry, a grassroots charity that works directly to support refugees in Lesvos, Greece. This release and many more are available at: amandapalmer.net
These latest projects were funded by over 11,000 people who subscribe to Palmer’s Patreon, each of whom pay an average of $3.50 per undertaking to support Palmer's unpredictable creation of new music, videos, writing and multimedia art. http://patreon.com/amandapalmer
JASON WEBLEY is a troubadour based in Everett, Washington. Beginning as a street performer in late ‘90s, Webley has built an international following for his songs and stories. Armed with an accordion, a guitar, a porkpie hat and a plastic vodka bottle full of pennies, he has travelled to over forty countries, performing everywhere from a former Siberian gulag to the 2014 TED conference.
In recent years, Webley has cut back on his performing to focus on other things, but he’s very happy to be joining his long-time friend and frequent collaborator, Amanda Palmer for this run of Northwest shows.
