On her tumblr, Palmer wrote:
every book-concert tour date is going to have a piano (which I will play), a ukulele (which i will attempt to play) and i’m also going to be chatting with the audience and with a special guest in every city. the idea is partly to promote the book…but also to play music, which is (we forget sometimes) what i actually *do*. i have a handful of new songs i’ll be playing. they’re frighteningly personal, which makes me scared to play them, which is always good. and i’ll probably come up with some crazy last-minute shit to do that is going to confuse everybody, because that’s just how i roll. i may re-enact the “bathroom confessional”, a stunt i very much enjoyed during tours past when i asked people to meet me in the bathroom stalls for private chats.
