Neko Case @ the 2009 Newport Folk Festival (more by Jim Brueckner)
Neko Case

"During the weekend of October 16th through October 18th, The New Yorker will present its tenth annual Festival, a three-day series of events that brings together some of the world's most talented and distinguished people in the fields of literature, art, film, music, humor, business, food, politics, design, and science....

...Pop-music offerings will include interviews with and performances by Neko Case, Bon Iver, Steve Earle, and Loudon Wainwright III; a pub-rock reunion with Ian Hunter, of Mott the Hoople, and Graham Parker, of Graham Parker and the Rumour; and a panel discussion about the music industry with Jace Clayton, Josh Deutsch, Melvin Gibbs, Danny Goldberg, and Livia Tortella. In addition, a special Brooklyn Playlist concert at Brooklyn's Bell House, curated by Sasha Frere-Jones and Kelefa Sanneh, will feature Dirty Projectors, House of Ladosha, Jubilee, and Liturgy."

This is a full three months before Bon Iver's other upcoming NYC show. More New Yorker announcements soon. "Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 18th, at 12 noon, and may be purchased at newyorker.com/festival"

Ian Hunter is a treasure. Washed up old farts do not sell out 5 Shows at the Hammersmith. I hope to heck I am still doing my thing, and loving it when I am 70.

How Anonymous always makes great comments about people being washed up old farts yet never post their pics and CV so we can decide what they're like? Strange innit.

Posted by Andrew Field | September 8, 2009 3:10 AM

Not many washed up old farts have 3 stunning albums in a row then sell out 7 nights of shows over 12 nights selling over 20,000 tickets anonymous moron.

At least have the balls to let everyone know who you are when talking such crap.
