(Intern Amber Bela Muse checked out Amanda Palmer on Saturday, November 14th, in Brooklyn. She asked me to post her review of the marvelous show while she's a busy bee traveling to and fro. Enjoy!) Last Saturday night, in front of the Music Hall of Williamsburg, I stood waiting in a long line to get tickets to see Amanda Palmer.  It was cold, rainy and my mood was beginning to sour.

We all agree that her look is crazy amazing, but her music leaves some of us saying 'eh,' and at least one saying that 'Paparazzi' sounds a little too much like the Berlin slow jam 'Take My Breath Away.'
