“AFP GOES DOWN UNDER” RECORD UNVEILED! DATES ANNOUNCED! CHILDREN CRY!

you folks in australia/new zealand who’ve bothered setting up your e-mail list profiles HERE – with location data and whatnot – got this information earlier, but for the rest of you, welcome to…
THE BIG BLOG OF ALL THINGS “AMANDA PALMER GOES DOWN UNDER” – PART I
i’m coming down under again (MAN, that sounds narsty) and this time i mean business, and to prove it, i’m bringing A WHOLE FUCKING RECORD WITH ME.
my comrades, i present to you….
and here’s the track listing…
the album is going to be released at the end of january.
as usual, it’s going to be available at my site for VeryFuckingCheap + Donation, as well as in a bunch of physical bundle options. over the next few weeks i’ll be telling you tons more about what’s on it, who’s on it, where it all came from, and how it all happened. plus we just shot a bad-ass music video for “map of tasmania” with michael pope. i’ll blog a teaser video and some photos shots from the video shoot very very soon……..all the volunteers and dancers in new york KILLED IT!!!!!!!!!!
and now, my friends, here is some info on the tour dates SO FAR….
the support acts are all incredible – as usual – and i’ll give you a much more detailed list (but hint: jason webley is coming, you’ll spy the jane austen arguement, mikelangelo and his back-up band are playing with me at select shows, and kim boekbinder might make a surprise appearance here and there…there’s also this weirdo named neil gaiman showing up at my show at sydney opera house…)

a couple pieces of information regarding the tour:
• see your city on the list, but see it with an “18+” right next to it? and more importantly, does that 18+ make you a sad panda? fret not, comrade: we are working on some ALL AGES ninja-gigs which’ll be sprinkled throughout the tour.
• i WARN you, we may add one or two shows in more out-of-the-way places, but for now, this is what’s solid.
• when you’re ordering tickets, you’ll see the option to buy a copy of the record (digitally) along with your purchase. i’m not telling you not to do this, but we WILL be posting the record at my site for VeryFuckingCheap + Donation when this shiznit goes live on our end.
• GO, GO, GO buy tickets before they’re gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
• to make up for you folks bummin’ that some of the gigs are 18+ even though i tried really hard to make them all ages. my gift to you: my brand new single – “map of tasmania” – completely for free (or you can donate if you feel inclined) is out NOW at music.amandapalmer.net – hal ritson (aka the young punx) and i worked on it together. expect a blog all about the origin and evolution of the song, but for now…BEHOLD!

see you so so soon, my warm little vegemites…..

DONATING = LOVING
...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog (http://www.brainpickings.org - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
