This week’s Song of the Week comes from The Dresden Dolls with their popular tune “Coin Operated Boy”. Lead singer Amanda Palmer began her performance career in Harvard Square as a busker and human statue performer. Her autobiography, “The Art of Asking“, was recently published and explores Palmer’s rise from a street performer to rock star, while giving a memorable TED talk in the process, all revolving on how she asked for support.

Explore the music of one of Boston’s most successful buskers yet through the music video for “Coin Operated Boy” below.
