Neko Case

Neko Case's latest tour has arrived in NYC. Crooked Fingers open for Neko at the
Nokia Theatre tonight (4/13). Joan as Policewoman open for Neko at the same venue tomorrow (4/14). Tickets for both shows are still on sale. I also have a pair for each show to giveaway. Details below.

Wondering what it will sound like? NPR is now streaming Thursday's DC show in its entirety. As a bonus, Will Sheff opened at that one, and you can listen to that @ NPR too.

The stage was set in something out of a nature cartoon with trees painted on long banners and an owl overseeing it all. Behind them videos of cyclones, airplanes and anthropomorphic animals were projected on a screen. But the attention was clearly on Case, her stunning voice, as well as her solid backing band. [NPR]

Neko will next be in the NYC-area to play a set at the All Points West Festival this summer.

You can also listen to Neko on WFUV on Tuesday at 1pm, and on a recent episode of AOL's The Interface (MP3 above).

Recent collaborators for Neko include Dexter Romweber and Marianne Faithful.

All Neko dates, her new video, and contest details, below...
