Neko Case / Charles Bradley, World Financial Center 7/12/2012
Neko Case
Charles Bradley

Yesterday (7/12) was the second day of the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival at World Financial Center Plaza. Thursday's show was diverse, featuring Canadian treasure Neko Case, badass showman Charles Bradley and the tap dancing cabaret roots sounds of He's My Brother She's My Sister.

More pictures from the show are in this post. and pictures from Day 1 of the fest are here. And while he didn't review this show for us, Dave "Shirtless" Hill was there and, by the looks of his instragrams, he owned this one too:

Dave, please go to every show

Dave, you were funny at the Def Leppard show. Let's leave it at that and not drag it out where you're going to become 'that guy' at the show without a shirt. You'll end up becoming as funny as hummus jokes on this site.

Let it go.

whatever happened to BEEEEEAAAAAANS

Ask and you shall receive, BV commenters! More Dave Hill! Is it too soon to add him to the BV Celebrity club with Frohawk and BEANS?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 3:48 PM

frohawk and Beans where organic. Dave Hill is forced and not funny.

Did anyone get close enough to Neko to report whether her usual odoriferous BO was in full effect last night?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 3:51 PM

^thanks god it was an outdoor show, amirite?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 3:53 PM

@3:51, get a new thesaurus.

odoriferous - having a natural fragrance; "odoriferous spices"; "the odorous air of the orchard"; "the perfumed air of June"; "scented flowers"
sweet-scented, sweet-smelling, perfumed, scented, odorous, sweet
fragrant - pleasant-smelling

Dave was also there was Todd Barry. Pretty fun show. My girlfriend dragged me, and I was pleasantly surprised.

^Chill the fuck out, Francis. I know that times have been hard ever since the Voice laid off all their fact checkers, but it's a nice day out. You really should go enjoy yourself somehow. Maybe go scold some children, or kick a cat or something.

just checking--commenters on this site are now criticizing musicians not just for the way they look but also how they smell? lemme add Neko felt a bit flabby last night, and tasted strangely astringent.

Posted by dave hill | July 13, 2012 4:07 PM

Did you eventually work your way to her front, Dave?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 4:10 PM

BO Case is hardly new. Frankly it's true, and has been a bit of a joke in the business for years.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 4:13 PM

Very nice - using a minor, 4th or 5th level connotation of a word is OK, but using an agnostic 1st level denotation of another word requires a fact check?

Is there a dash in "anal retentive"?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 4:14 PM

Preemptive apology for my use of the term "agnostic" for the benefit of our unemployed fact-checker douchenozzle that obviously has a bit of time on his hands today ...

"Today the word can be seen applied to questions of politics, culture, and science, as when someone claims to be a “political agnostic. In a more recent trend, one can be agnostic simply by not taking a stand on something. In 2010, President Obama called himself “agnostic” on tax cuts until he had seen all available options."

Sad state affairs in the world of anonymous internet commenting.

I know the rest of the band. Who's Neko's drummer?

I don't think he was funny even with the Def Leppard nonsense.

they need to have dave and frohawk do a photoset together.

That Def Leppard post was classic. Full stop. You figure it out. Still waiting. Sp1n D0ctors. Lin.san.ity. Hummus.

About 10 years ago I would have totally tapped Neko Case and I would have done very humbling giving things to her. But now, she looks like the counter clerk at a lesbian book store.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 5:00 PM

This chick on the other hand, I would totally nail. Something about her ...

Dave Ruled again at the He's My little Sister show.

No maybe its time to give it a rest until a Acheron or 285 kent show.

The drummer looks like Kurt Dahle, the New Pornos drummer.

Neko Case smells really, really bad. I'm serious.

That's what we need in my city. A blue's festival. It's unfortunate people don't get to be exposed more to this type of music.
