Video Spotlight: The Anatomy of Amanda Fucking Palmer

Written by Linda Park | August 16, 2013

Amanda Palmer made news with her successful Kickstarter campaign where she raised a record-breaking $1,192,793 from 24,883 fans to fund her album Theatre is Evil last May.

A few months later, pre-sale tickets for her worldwide tour sold out for every city in hours, and her album debuted on the Billboard Top 10.

The ground-breaking artist and her team took time at this year's SXSW to discuss what went into making her campaign so successful and the years of work it took to create an established relationship with fans... and how sometimes reaching out and getting to know the people who came to her shows was more fun the actual show itself.
