Neko Case @ All Points West 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
Neko Case

"Without doubt, Neko Case was one of the highlights of this year's Lollapalooza. Prior to her Sunday set, I wasn't really sure how she'd come across in the music festival setting. So much of her material is thoughtful and intimate and suited for venues that allow it to shine, not a huge grassy field filled with hot, sweaty drunk people.

Somehow, though, Case managed to make it work wonderfully.

As soon as she started playing the Budweiser Stage at 4:30, it was clear the sound was 100 percent on target and that the set would be a welcome change of pace. She played a variety of songs from her latest record, Middle Cyclone - including "This Tornado Loves You," "I'm an Animal," The Pharaohs" and the marvelous, jangly single "People Got a Lotta Nerve" - in addition to back catalog favorites such as "Maybe Sparrow" and "Deep Red Bells." Case's clear, pure voice couldn't have sounded better, and she was charming and down-to-earth throughout - no doubt one of the classiest acts on this year's bill." [Chicago Examiner]

Neko Case has started booking some fall shows in the United States. One of those will take place at NYC's Beacon Theatre on November 16th with Joey & John of Calexico opening. Tickets for the show go on American Express pre-sale on Wednesday, 8/19 @ 11AM, and then general sale at the same time on Friday. All dates below...

Wow, do you think she can sell out the Beacon? Maybe they don't expect to sell out and that's why some seats are gonna go for $4.50.
