Evelyn Evelyn are two singing conjoined twins that have an uncanny resemblance to Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley. Their middling goth showtunes either delight or infuriate, all depending on your opinion of the two artists sharing a stage (and body) tonight. The faux-sideshow charm of Evelynx2 and their self-titled debut is short lived, since the majority of the songs feel like they were rescued from the Dresden Dolls scrapheap. This isn't to knock the dual personalities of Palmer and Webley—Palmer, especially, since she is a living, breathing LiveJournal entry, an emotionally gushing (and oversharing) personality that has demolished the invisible wall between performer and fan. But that charisma can't salvage Evelyn Evelyn's body of work. Time to sever these twins and move on. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
