Author Neil Gaiman was in Denton Yesterday; Amanda Palmer to Play “Secret” Show at Good Records Tonight

This covers so many different types of nerd, I don’t even know where to begin taking fanboy shots. So we’ll just get to the good news. Yesterday, award-winning author and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman accompanied musician and wife Amanda Palmer—who performs with the “cabaret punk” act Dresden Dolls and has a successful solo career as well—for a Violitionist session in little old Denton.

Violitionist continues to rack up an impressive list of increasingly more well-known names for its bedroom-based interview series, and I was surprised by the sight of Gaiman popping up in my Facebook feed. His is an image I know quite well, since I based my leather jacket and sunglasses look on him in 9th grade, complete with Morpheus shirt. The jury is still out on whether or not I actually pulled that style off with any amount of success on my 14-year-old, 110 lb, six ft frame, but, “nerd” and “fanboy,” indeed.

Gaiman and Palmer were interviewed and even performed a duet together. The clip should premier sometime in late May. If you can’t wait until then, Amanda Palmer will be performing a “ninja” gig at Good Records this evening at 6 pm, which I’m assuming means kind of secret, and kind of not secret at all. The event is free.
