Amanda Palmer Ninja Gigs at the Library

amandapalmersWellington Central Library was treated to a very special group of visitors on Monday the 2nd of September. Amanda Palmer and her Ninja Parade stopped by the library ground floor for around 15 minutes to perform three songs on her ukelele. The parade, which started on the waterfront piano, weaved through Wellington’s CBD stopping at Te Papa before making its way up Cuba Street and finishing at the Garrett Street Collective. There were many poignant moments during the parade including a renditions of Radiohead’s Creep in the library (see below) and Leonard Cohen’s (made huge by Jeff Buckley) Hallelujah on Cuba Street.
