Two weeks after Neil Gaiman announced via Twitter that his wife Amanda Palmer was expecting their first child, the New Statesman has some news of their own.

Palmer is well known for leading “Brechtian punk cabaret” group The Dresden Dolls. Oh, and for telling the Daily Mail exactly where to go. Gaiman scrubs up pretty well too, being the author of the seminal Sandman series and the late Terry Pratchett’s co-author on the rather fine Good Omens.

The weekly political and cultural magazine is holding a special event in London featuring the pair on the evening of the 28 May. Details of the exact location are not known yet but tickets are priced at £26.50-£15.00 (with additional £1.50 online booking fee) and they can be pre-registered online. As it is likely that this event will sell out, we suggest clicking that link sooner rather than later.

Meantime, here’s a tune from The Rocky Horror Picture Show featuring the expectant couple with “the most depressed man in rock” Stephin Merritt and winner of the “best impression of a shaven testicle” that is Moby.
