Freaky Extras: Amanda Palmer Wants You

Calling all thesps: there's a video shoot going on, and it's in "OKLAHOMA CITY, the psychedelic utopia of Flaming-Lips-Land!!!!"

Are you a freak, nerd or weirdo? Do you live in Oklahoma City? If you've answered yes to either/both of these questions, we've got the perfect way for you to while away an evening. Amanda Palmer is making a video for 'Do It with a Rockstar' off her forthcoming The Grand Theft Orchestra album Theatre Is Evil and The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne is in the director's chair.

The website Amanda vs Wayne is hosting an ad for extras for the shoot. In no-nonsense red and white capitals, it tells us: "We will be performing live in a venue, and we need a crowd made up of freaks, nerds, and weirdos such as your fine selves, dressed up in your best GRAND THEFT ATTIRE."

If this sounds like you, drop an e-mail to with a picture of you in costume. The shoot's on 6th August from 4pm-midnight. Be warned though: "All video shooting is weird so be prepared for sitting around when shit breaks!!!"
