Ah yes, another episode of Amanda Diva TV. No blind governor jokes this time. On May 3, Amanda Diva took a trip to Philly for a show at The Black Lily during the 2nd Annual Black Lily Film and Music Festival

Amanda also talked to producer/musician James Poyser (read your liner notes) and the founders of The Black Lily. more..
