WOOHOO!
Tonight Neko Case will be in Dallas at House of Blues with The New Pornographers. Love this song, Go Places, from the new TNP cd.
Also, Glaswegian Emma Pollock opens that show. Headliner act is Spoon. But I'm just going for the opening acts. YAY!

Sickeningly, I just discovered that Neko was in town opening for Rufus Wainwright two months ago, and I missed it, alas. *le sigh*
I like RW fine, but not necessarily enough to go see him, but I WOULD go for Neko...

I remember going to a Status Quo gig back in the seventies because The Pretty Things were the opening act.

Watched my heroes and then walked out two songs into Quo's set thinking my work here is done.

Have a great time tonight.

I can't wait to hear all about the show. I hope Emma Pollack told lots of funny little stories, like she did in Calgary. I could have listened to her talk all night.

I loooooooooove Neko. I just wish she'd do another solo tour, dangit.

lainy - Thank you, i DID!

dbadude - thanks! And that is such a happy surprise -finding that you prefer the opening act.

barbara - I could have listened to her all night, too, but the audience was Dead On Arrival, and I couldn't do it all by myself.

james - Yeah, she is amazing! A new album from Neko would be great, too.

She sounds good...I'll have to check her out.

mushy - yeah, she has a russet, womanly tone to her voice - and her songwriting is marvelous.
