neko case

She cut her teeth in Tacoma—now Neko Case tours the world with two different bands.

I couldn’t believe it either: There are still tickets on sale for each of these concerts, including Neko Case’s show at the Paramount on Sunday. Case is currently the hardest working woman in indie rock, touring behind her 2009 solo album Middle Cyclone; playing free shows in Vancouver with her other band, the New Pornographers; and collaborating with Nick Cave on a cover of the Zombies’ ’She’s Not There’ for the new season of True Blood. Playing one of the largest theaters in Seattle almost sounds…relaxing after all that.
