i meant to post about going to see neko case in concert last weekend, being as i went to see her last weekend, but, i just didn't, so nevermind about that. i've seen her twice before - once solo and once with the 'new pornographers' - and i think i can safely say that if you even kinda like her, its worth it to see her live. the voice is fabulous.|
its so hysterical that she came to BG - the little college town of about 30,000 people and not many other towns nearby. it was fun to look up her website and see chicago, new york, and....us. plus the fact that the venue was just down the block. literally. i took this pic from my bedroom window:
this was also the only time i've ever been in the very front row of a non-seating concert - as in squished up against the stage like a sardine. the only bad part is that one really can't move for hours. this proved exciting at first, but kind of bad during the middle of the opening act, whose name i don't remember for obvious reasons below but i can tell you she was really fun and had a coffee-shop feist kind of feel and was from canada.

and then the concert started and all was right with the world. it's possible that, at some point, i may have yelled out, "thanks for coming to bowling green! you rock our socks!" and then neko's trusty sidekick - i think her name is kelly - said back something like, "we're good at the rocking of the socks." ooh - and she played "if you knew," which i hadn't heard yet and is one of my personal fav's.
here are a couple neko pics taken with my crappy phone, plus one of the owl set...
