KT Tunstall chat rescheduled…+ the Save the Senate Festival benefit concert.
quick hit from a coffeeshop in aotearoa new zealand. i just dropped ash off at school. i was about to head home and pop onto this live chat with KT tunstall but she’s unwell so wants to reschedule!! sorry bout that. Will let you know when we find a new time to jam it out….likely next week after the weekend recvery.
I’ll pop on my Instagram Live today – in about 5 minutes. 10:30 NZ time – to just say hello and chat with you…and show you what life here in this little village looks like.
and we’ll have KT next week, and probably storm, too. make sure you’re following me on instagram and have notifications enabled for when I go live so you don’t miss out….@amandapalmer
And, yes, I’m reading your comments about platforms and wondering how we can beat do this.
Have any of you used the “lens” feature on patreon? Thoughts if so?
Also, this just in… my musician pal Ben Lee, along with Johanna Samuels, Fortune Tellers Music, and Sid the Cat have organized a virtual music festival called “SAVE THE SENATE” to help raise money for the two Georgia Senate Run-Off Democrat Candidates up in a run-off election next month.
I know you probably all know how critical this is.
All proceeds will go to Fair Fight, an organization founded by Stacey Abrams to fight voter suppression and advocate for free and fair elections…
