An Evening with Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer

by The Staff on April 4, 2013

 

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.
