“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.
