The line was huge at Antone’s but it turned out to be justified. Neko Case came on stage on time and started singing. Neko must have learned special from her affiliation with The New Pornographers, because there it was again, that feeling which is a reminder of the importance of live music.

Neko Case and her band played perhaps the best show of our short three-day trip. Antone’s is a music lover’s club, mostly known, I recall, for blues, but it always has a great lineup during SXSW. On the other hand, the drinks are expensive and the space is limited. Plus, it has one of those concrete floors that make my old-man back hurt.

Add Tacoma, Washington’s Neko Case to the list of bands that deserve your closer inspection, and her new album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood is wort buying.
