This summer, they reached a new crowd, touring alongside Erasure, Debbie Harry and the Gossip on Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Tour.
Boston duo the Dresden Dolls have announced a pair of live dates set for this August, which finds Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione back on stage together for the first time in an official capacity since 2010 (they played Rough Trade in New York last year).

The couple broke the news via Twitter, and later Neil posted this sweet message on his Facebook page: UPDATE: Neil wrote more about his wedding on his blog.
