Neko Case to Tour This Summer
Fri, 10 Jun 2011 12:40:30
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Neko Case, recently heralded by NPR Music as "one of the most memorable and seductive voices in music," has just announced a series of North American performance dates. The celebrated artist, whose imaginative and evocative album Middle Cyclone proved a favorite with fans and music critics alike, will be heading across the country along with popular Louisville rock band My Morning Jacket.
In addition, Case will be making an appearance at the highly anticipated Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 15th along with Animal Collective, Guided by Voices, Thurston Moore and others. And on Sunday, September 11th, Neko will perform under the California night sky at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on a special bill with acclaimed indie rock band The National.
Having recently raised nearly $42K for the non-profit charity 826 National, Neko Case donated her beautiful 1967 Mercury Cougar pictured on the cover of Middle Cyclone to help fund tutoring, writing, and publishing for students ages six to eighteen, and to help teachers get their classes excited about writing.
