What do graphic novelist Neil Gaiman and Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer have in common? Well, for one, they’re married (by way of a flash-mob wedding, natch). But beyond that? Their prolific output and intelligent approach to gothic themes have earned each a berth in the cultural consciousness beyond mere recognition for their work. Gaiman is a rock star of the comic nerd set, on par with magicians Alan Moore and Grant Morrison, while Palmer is a hero of crowdsourcing and fan-oriented art production. Each might be readily namedropped when conversation turns to the zeitgeist.
So, it’s a treat that Bard College has brought the two together for this “intimate night of spoken word, songs, stories, chats with the audience and more than a few surprises.”
Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer will be at Bard College’s Sosnoff Theater (Fisher Center, Annandale-on-Hudson) on Saturday (April 6) at 8 PM. Tickets are $25-$40. Call 845-758-7900 for more info.
