I'm embarassed to say I only recently became aware of Neko Case, thanks to New Pornographers. What CDs by her would you recommend?

Thanks for pointing out the mp3! Great cover.

IMO, Furnace Room Lullabye is the best album, followed by The Tigers Have Spoken and then Blacklisted.

I'm looking forward to the new album. Though it doesn't hurt that Garth Hudson is a contributor.

Yeah, this is on a CD I burned for my bar's jukebox. Found it about 6 months ago when I was doing random Dylan searches on Limewire. Great cover! And of course I always imagine it's ME that Neko is calling "honey baby!"

I went to see Neko Case a few weekends ago with the highest expectations as she was warming up for My Morning Jacket at the overpriced Rock The Garden in Minneapolis.

What a letdown. I don't know who was more bored, Neko Case or the 10,000 people who stopped listening to her halfway through as she farted around with not witty banter between the huge gaps between songs and then got even more boring with her song selection. Her voice is beautiful, but that was a waste of an hour.

My Morning Jacket kicked ass, however, so the night was saved by them. I did expect more for my 80 dollar ticket though.

Wait. Rock The Garden tickets cost $80? Holy dogshit. Now I'm triply glad I didn't go.

I am entirely done with music festivals. The hordes of people interested more in "scene" than music just irk the hell out of me, and as you note, greekguy, the performers themselves seem to approach them with far less seriousness and professionalism as a result. I've very rarely seen a show at a festival that rivals what I've seen at real headlining concerts.

The Rock The Garden fest has clearly become the place all the hipsters go, too, which I can do without. I haven't been to a Garden show in about ten years. The last show I went to there, in fact, was one The Jayhawks headlined one night. I don't remember if that was "Rock The Garden," or just a concert at the Walker. But that was all right.

I've also grown disappointed in Neko's recent output. She had a run of three absolutely *tremendous* albums in the late 20th/very early 21st century, but her last album was a total snoozer. Furnace Room Lullaby will probably always be among my all-time favorite records, with Blacklisted its near twin, but I admit to no longer being excited about her work. Even Fox Confessor wasn't up to par with the earlier records. Oh well.

Funny, isn't it, that the concert generating the most buzz here recently was the St Cloud "Gary Louris and Friends" show, and that cost EIGHT FRICKING DOLLARS, yet Rock The Garden cost $80? What's wrong with this picture, folks?

Yeah. RTG is such a dork fest that it sells out pretty much immediately to members almost before they know who is going to play. Me, I had to sign up for a membership at MPR (70 dollars) just for the right to buy tickets at 48 bucks, which actually makes the price 83 dollars each for two tickets.

I didn't want to miss MMJ. Let the record show that I made the show in the rain.

I have the exact same sentiments as Greekguy regarding Neko Case's performance at Rock the Garden. Actually, I align with Greekguy on a lot of his musical preferences including the Jayhawks. I just don't choose to join him in some of those debates as debating is not my forte.

I've seen Neko Case three other times (once at the Historic State Theater and twice at First Avenue) and she didn't seem to adapt her setlist to her audience or at least acknowledge that not everyone at the venue was familiar with her music and squandered her opportunity. Her pacing was slow and the setlist was more appropriate for a sit down crowd that was more familiar with her last three albums. Granted, part of the audience was sitting at the top of the hill, but as Greekguy mentioned, many were falling asleep.

By the time that she started performing, it was only lightly raining, but I think that people kind of want to move around instead of stand in one place and be rained on. I quite enjoy self deprecating humor, but it became ever increasingly grating throughout the setlist. Okay, we understand that you don't "rock" as much as MMJ does, but you do have a few up tempo songs on Furnace Room Lullabye or Blacklisted. So why not play a few of these songs to get the crowd moving a bit? She came off as defeated from the start, so I was almost begging for her to get off the stage to allow more time for My Morning Jacket to perform.

The downside of festival shows is the abbreviated performance times. I would have had no problem having My Morning Jacket play for 2 1/2 hours instead of 1 1/2 hours, but it was lights out at 10:00.

I didn't arrive to Rock the Garden until the latter part of Booker T. Jones' set, which I do regret. A lot of the performance I heard on the Current's live feed in my car. I did, however, arrive around the main stage when "Time is Tight" was played, which I was first familiarized to as a song the Clash covered.

There are still a few shows this summer that I am looking forward to attending (Black Keys, U2, Big Audio Dynamite), but I do regret not making the drive to St. Cloud for the Gary Louris & Friends show. For those of you who attended, I don't mind you all rubbing it in.

No comment on your excellent post, NewGuy, but Peter Lorre from Fritz Lang's "M" as your avatar? Are you crazy?

Oh...didn't greekguy do JW Gacy a while back?

You guys are sick. SICK, I tells ya.

Nice work.

After I changed my avatar, it did cross my mind that having someone portraying a child abductor in a movie may come off as a bit creepy. I think that you helped confirm my apprehension.
