Wes grad, and world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer, Amanda Palmer will return to Wesleyan for a concert to benefit financial aid at the university.

This is the second time in a year that Palmer has returned. The first was a surprisingly intimate appearance on Foss Hill for the Humanity Festival in April.

This appearance, billed as a "Concert and Conversation" will take place Friday May 24, 9 PM,  at the Crowell Concert Hall during Wesleyan's Reunion and Commencement Weekend.  More info here.  Tickets are now on sale.

Palmer, who rocketed to international acclaim with her band, the Dresden Dolls, is no stranger to fundraising.  In a Kickstarter campaign for her last album (which has since become controversial), Palmer raised $1.2 million.
