After eight years apart (give or take a short reunion or two), it appears that The Dresden Dolls are back in action. Technically, it will be a return of Amanda Palmer playing Dresden Dolls music with the added bonus of original drummer Brian Viglione, who just finished a trek with the similarly reunited Violent Femmes. All the same, even if it’s just a band of two people getting back together, it’s still big news.
Thus far, only two shows have been announced, but I’m guessing that a mountain of them will be added in the near future. After all, it’s festival season, baby!! The two shows scheduled currently will be in their hometown of Boston on August 27 and New York City the next day on the 28th. Tickets go on sale April 15. Check out some of their still-great videos below.
