"In 45 minutes the show with Showalter starts! It's gonna be amazing, I can tell by his purple sweater. Color of royalty. He's feelin' it!" - Neko Case

Neko Case

Neko Case helped Michael Showalter promote his new book at an event at Barnes & Noble in Union Square last night (2/24), or to be more specific, Upstairs at the Square. Katherine Lanpher hosted. Neko sang four songs (setlist below). Showalter read a couple passages including a beat poetry inspired poem and a chapter about what to put in a Hollywood script. He also discussed the orgin of The Baxter, and they both talked about their writing process. Pictures from the bookstore are in this post.

Uptairs at the Square returns to Barnes & Noble in Union Square twice in March. Wednesday, March 9 will feature Rebecca Skloot (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks) and Cubic Zirconia (Follow Your Heart), and Thursday, March 24 has my favorite Keren Ann (101) with Barbara Browning (The Correspondence Artist).

Audience members included Eugene Mirman (who will again join Michael at the Bell House this weekend) and Todd Barry (who just announced an April tour with Neil Hamburger - dates below) (not to be confused with Neil's February and March tour).

Earlier in the day Neko "leaked" a new Dodos song via her Twitter. She wrote, "Fave song off new Dodos. Bummed I didn't didn't get to sing on it (I shouldn't be so greedy cuz I did sing on lots)." Download that above. The Dodos are heading out on tour in March and they'll be playing lots of SXSW shows in the process. Their updated dates, a BrooklynVegan day party included, are below.

Michael Showalter is also touring, though he won't be at SXSW. Neko Case is not touring, though she did just play a show at the Bell House and is giving away her car.

is it wrong that the first thing that came to mind when seeing these photos is, "holy crap, white people."

The one black person there should be ashamed of themselves.

There were five black people there!

Yeah, that's right, white kids! Make jokes about white people and you get +5 darker skin tones

i heard that neko does not shower much and smells. or could it be chick pea gas?

Posted by Anonymous | February 25, 2011 2:35 PM

2:10, I think that every time I frequent a book store.

Posted by Anonymous | February 25, 2011 2:36 PM

Canadians typically don't shower that much. Twice a week is normal there.

Ooh, white guilt and veiled racism. In the same thread!

I love how Neko can leak this Dodos track but then I try putting it up on SoundCloud for my blog and I got e-mails about it being a copyright infringement. What's most interesting about this is how you find out which "indie" bands are actually part of a major label structure.

I don't see any white people.

this reminds of the time i thught it was romantic girls love semen so i came on her bed in each corner of the bed so we could be surrounded by it then she didnt see the poetry in motion

i'm yearning for her

this was great! and the 'fro hawk was distracting, even if you weren't sitting directly behind it. neko case was awesome even though it seemed as though she hadn't showered in a week

Todd and Eugene!

2:35... Please do not start false rumors. There is no evidence that hummus consumption causes gas. Please do not create negative notions about the almighty chickpea. Thank you for understanding.

Pretty sure I see Zak Orth in the pic with Eugene and Todd.

Neko Case really does smell really, really bad. I know you think I'm kidding on this, but I am not. P.U.!

remember when you guys were a relatively famous singer with actual songwriting talent instead of snarky anonymous commentators? me neither.

I would so do Neko Case, even though she is kinda long in the tooth. I mean, rode hard and put away wet a few times too many. Bad dye job, but I'd still do her. from behind.

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2011 11:00 PM

doesn't the dude look like a perv? like, totally hiding behind the bleachers, spanking the monkey.

Neko Case is mediocre liberal garbage....The marxist liberal society of Canada promotes the most banal and souless rubbish that it's really embarassing.Neko Case Feist and the oh so bland ron sexsmith are prime examples....

Posted by deljay | November 16, 2011 9:26 PM

Neko Case in concert grinds on one's nerves. Her continual wailing is way overdone and gets annoying very quickly.

Posted by Bruce Fawcett | September 22, 2013 11:15 AM

I saw her last night in Tuscon. I left early, the first time in my life I have done that. Just super annoying, too hip for me, obvious lyrics, HORRIBLE sound tech, and phoning it in. I used to be a big fan. Not what she once was.
