Let’s pretend I, as an organized and responsible adult, actually posted this week’s Saturday Songbird on Saturday. We good? All right then.
Happy Belated Birthday to the one and only, Amanda Fucking Palmer.
One of my favorite songs of hers is the “Ukulele Anthem.” I can never stay sad listening to that song. And when she was here in Portland a few years ago, she randomly sang in front of Powells Books. I can’t wait for her to come back to Portland and actually see her effervescence in person!
Here’s a video of her impromptu Powells romp, having borrowed someone’s card as a pick and having people help hold her up as she plays the entire song standing on a bike rack rail.
Happy Birthday, Amanda. Join us each week for a new Saturday Songbird!
