Neko Case at The Egg

neko case 2014

Singer/songwriter Neko Case is set to play a show at The Egg May 7. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (January 31) -- they're $35. (They're already on sale to members of The Egg.)

Case's music is somewhere in the vicinity of the intersection of indie rock, alt-country, and folk rock -- both in her solo work and with The New Pornographers. Her most recent album -- The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You (review) -- was nominated for best alternative music album at the Grammys.

She has a tremendous voice. Among the phrases used to describe it:

+ "so powerful, nuanced and pure"
+ "astonishing, siren-like"
+ "uniquely clear and powerful"
+ it "usually stops people in their tracks"
+ "Neko Case has a cold, so her range & power last night were downgraded from 'Intergalactic Sonic Anomaly' to 'Eschaton-Announcing Messenger.'"

Case will be performing in The Egg's 982-seat Hart Theater.

Oh. My. God.

I swear I read that as Nick Cage at first and was very confused...

So far 2014 is looking to be a good year for music around here!

Hot Diggity Dog! Now this made my year!

One of the last times she was in town (at the Egg, awesome show!), her backup vocalist Kelly Hogan gave a shout-out to the ORIGINAL Palais Royale, and yelled out "Rocky!" (as in the late, beloved proprietor Rocky Nigro).

This woman and band scored extra Albany brownie points that night!

I saw her at the Egg a few years ago and she was fantastic. Her voice was just as good live as it is on her recordings . . . can't wait to see her again.

She is a wonderful artist. But, strange that tickets went on sail for Ringo at the Palace on Monday and barely got a yawn. I think it speaks volumes about how the media covers and promotes the the local music scene.
