What are you listening to Part the Third


Recommended Posts

Some Neko Case, in prep for tonight's show.....


Nice! Enjoy. My last Neko concert experience wasn't the best... Orpheum in Boston, unnecessarily loud and I'm still lukewarm on the new album. But that said, I'd go see her again in a second. She is generally amazing live.

Ian, not to rub it in, but I think you would have loved the Lowell show.  Beautiful night outdoors, two lawn areas where blankets and beach chairs ruled, kids under 12 free.....Karen and I had a nice picnic mix from home and Panera.


Neko played songs from the above two albums and Middle Cyclone.  The new album is a bit too "electric/rocking" for my taste normally, but it was a little more mellow & "countrified" Saturday night.  Great sound, VERY tight playing, and 3 songs in the encore including a nice duet with the guitarist of one of his songs.


In addition, her in-between-song banter is great.  After the first song, she was talking about being in a building across the street, with no pants on, looking at the crowd (nothing "pervy" as she says).  She saw a plate of cookie dough apparently, and said she was just up there "cookie-hawkin'."  At other times she was talking about hiring some women in the crowd who were dancing, as the "Neko Case Dancers" complete with costumes and their own bus....


Lots of fun, lots of good music.


Oh, yeah, her outfit was funny: plain black shirt, and black pants with bones of the legs as graphics.

Just finished:  Pineapple Thief, 10 Stories Down -- how often is it that a band's fourth album is their best?

Just started:  Muse, Black Holes & Revelations -- how often is it that a band's fourth album is their best?


Alright, yes, Zoso, Vol 4, Dog & Butterfly, Agents of Fortune, Spirit of Eden, A Night at the Opera...alright, already, it's fairly often, I get it.
