Dresden Dolls in NYC this Weekend!

Since I have been focusing more on Facebook than blogging, this seems like a good place to start. I’m traveling to New York City by myself for the first time this weekend to see the Dresden Dolls reunion concert at the new Ford Ampitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk and it’s going to be a photo taking extravaganza all weekend. But the venue doesn’t allow pro DSLR’s and I’m not staying near the theater.

I’m an Amanda Palmer Patreon supporter and she has been requesting performers and buskers, so I sent an email to her manager and requested permission to bring my camera into the concert, and was thrilled to get this response in the mail today.

“Hey Becky! How are you? I can definitely put you down for a photo pass. We have a few photographers already, but you’d be allowed to be next to the stage for the first three songs. Are you interested?
Have a great week!
SuperKate Management – Amanda Palmer”

ZOMG!!!

I’ve had the privilege of seeing Amanda twice when I was in New Orleans, and she actually retweeted my photo of her amazing baby bump, so I’m super excited¬†to be able to bring my full frame camera to the show and get up close and personal this weekend. Lots and lots of photos of the concert and of New York to come!
