Amanda Palmer, Stephin Merritt, Moby and Neil Gaiman: Totally Tubular

Well everyone, it's a rainy, poopy Thursday and we need all the awesome available to make it through the next few hours before the RFT's Best Of party tonight at the City Museum. (We'll see you there, right? Bloody well right.) The party theme is the Rapture, and (awkward segue alert!) here's a rapturous video from earlier in the week: Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer doing yet another cover of "Science Fiction Double Feature" from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. With a little help from a barely-there beaded sheath, Palmer performs the classic tune with Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, Moby (?!) and husband/legit sci-fi scribe Neil Gaiman.

And just for good measure, another rockin' cover by Joan Jett live from Tokyo in 2003. Because she rules.

And the real thing, just cuz we're not over Halloween yet.
