Neko Case set list

Neko Case wrapped up her Tacoma homecoming show at the Pantages an hour ago. Her joyfully tearful performance of “Thrice All American” was worth the price of admission alone. More on that later. Here’s the set list for now.

A cool Neko Case interview

Neko Case’s homecoming concert will take place in less than a week at the Pantages. And I stumbled onto this cool interview she did with Canada’s QTV. Been a while since she’s wanted to do interviews with her hometown paper, though. I’ll have to see if I can dig up the tape of the last one I did with her and convert it to MP3 for you all between now and the show.


Neko Case headed back to Tacoma

Neko Case – the woman who immortalized Tacoma with her songs "South Tacoma Way" and "Thrice All American" – is finally coming back. Seattle Theatre Group is expected to announce details regarding a June 2 appearance at the Broadway Center’s Pantages Theater next week, a date added as the singer’s June 4 show at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre neared selling out.

Case lives in Tucson, Ariz., these days, but spent many of her formative years in Tacoma. Before she was famous, she tended bar at Bob’s Java Jive and was a go-go dancer for Tacoma garage-punk band Girl Trouble.

Neko Case on “Late Night with David Letterman”

As mentioned in my post on last weekend’s X show, Neko Case appeared on Letterman last night with Visqueen’s Rachel Flotard helping out with some background vox. And as “Chrisgra” points out in the comments section, video of Case and company singing “This Tornado Loves You” has surfaced on YouTube. Flotard is the second backup singer from the right, I think.

P.S. You all have listened to the song Girl Trouble wrote about Neko over in the South Sound Mixtape window, right?


Neko Case tickets go on sale Saturday

OK, so that webcast of Neko Case’s concert in Amsterdam that I blogged about recently didn’t quite pan out, with the show getting canceled and all. But soon, local fans will get to see her live and in person. The Seattle Theatre Group just announced Case, a former Tacoma resident, will headline the Paramount Theatre on June 4.

Case — who immortalized T-town with her songs “Thrice All American” and “South Tacoma Way” — will be touring in support of her new album album “Middle Cyclone,” which was released today.

Catch Neko Case live in Amsterdam

All right, settle down, Sparky. Didn’t mean to make you think I was doling out all expenses paid vacations to actually see Neko Case in Amsterdam. On a reporter’s salary? In this economy? Please! That’s crazy talk. But what I can do, at least, is give you the poor man’s consolation prize — this link to Fab Channel’s webcast of the upcoming show at Amsterdam’s Paradiso.

This month’s Paste cover girl, who grew up in Tacoma but now kicks it in Tucson, Ariz., is bound to play some fresh, new cuts from her forthcoming
