Mikos and Nekos and LTs, OH MY! [More:]

Tonight Miko and I are going to see Miss Neko Case at the Music Hall.

This thread is to talk about how great Neko Case music is.
Jealous. She played here in August but we were just too busy.

Porchlight is one of my favourite songs of all time. You lucky people.

She played here, last month I think, and I could not get tickets.

I want Neko to be my new girlfriend. It's that simple.

I am also still a tad bummed out because when I took Sophie to see Neko at Massey Hall this summer, I spent all my cash-on-hand to buy a t-shirt for Soph - I had to let her commemorate her first concert in style! - but it left me too low on cash for a super cool poster for the new place I was sure I'd have soon. Really, I should have just planned better, and made sure I had more $$ for merch. The time before though, when I'd seen her at Trinity Church (same place that the Cowboy Junkies recorded that fantastic first record) there was scant merch.

Now, I am in my new place, and I don't have a poster. Oh sure, Sophie's still got her SHIRT. And she's still a great kid. And, that Neko Case show blew her 8 year old mind. And I got to feel like the best dad in the world that night.

Anyway I digress. Given how much BOTH Sophie and Evelyn love Neko, I think it's reasonable to hope that I can date her. No?

Also I've been listening to "Canadian Amp" a lot lately. It's kind of short, but oh-so good.

richat: I think that story is the point!

Dad used to take us to see jazz shows at this place in San Antonio when I was in grade school. The first rock show I ever saw was some sort of DoD event (Elizabeth Taylor was at it) in Washington DC. Dad took us; Meatloaf performed. It was awesome.

I think I'm on The Tigers Have Spoken somewhere, going "whoooo!"
I went to the Toronto shows she recorded them at, both the Lee's Palace one and the Matador (at 4am!)
Seen her a bunch of times. Always a great show.

Wow. I've read lots of mentions of Neko Case here and at Mefi but had never heard any of her songs. I'm smitten!

I thought this was about your new neko, johnny cash.

Mr. Johnny Cash is no Neko. He's his own man.

Richat - You're better off without the poster. Because when Neko comes over to your place, it would be *really* uncomfortable if you already had her poster up on the wall, wou'nnit? Totally blow the date. Anyway... Neko at Trinity? ZOMG Jealous!

I last saw Neko play in Golden Gate Park... for free... as the sun was setting towards the Pacific ocean, lighting her on fire. How ossem is that?

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2010 will be Oct 1,2,3.. Just sayin'.

Well, I BOUGHT A CAT in Stratham, just to watch him thrive.

And by thriving, I mean HAIRBALL! WOAH-OH HAIR-BALL!

And did I mention that we now have a guest room? Because we do. It accommodates two guests in comfort. We like having guests.
