A little over a year ago, I didn't even know who Amanda Palmer is. I may have come across the name in passing, but I had no idea which type of music she makes or that she used to be in a band called the Dresden Dolls (which I may also have come across in passing). Too bad that I can't remember how I came across her - now legendary - Kickstarter campaign. I must have liked what I saw, since I spontaneously decided to back it. And the rest, as they say, is history.
You've probably heard it all before: The most successful music-related Kickstarter campaign to date, the TED talk (which I gushed about elsewhere), etc. etc.
Now I wanted to see (or is that "experience"?) what it is to attend one of her concerts. Would it live up the expectations? And so, on a hot summer day in early July, I found myself heading to Paris, for a few days of vacation that were to kick off with attending an Amanda Palmer concert.
