Amanda Palmer agrees with me about burlesque

Although from the performance art scene, she is wary of being lumped in with the trendy return of burlesque that has been catching on in London, at least.

"I was aware of it, but not really involved," Palmer explains. "Most of the acts were really poor. A lot of people in the scene say it's great to see the revival, but depressing to see a whole slew of girls say, I can take my clothes off, that sounds like fun."

(From Friday's Independent.)

...and if the lead singer of the Dresden Dolls agrees with me, I must be right.
