A tomboyish siren with a thick red mane and lungs of fine Corinthian leather, Neko Case is equal parts gender warrior and indie aesthete, a potent hybrid aptly evoked by the Joan-of-Arc-on-a-muscle-car tableau on the cover of 2009’s Middle Cyclone. Case is also in possession of what is arguably the greatest voice of her generation — clarion in tone; trans-national in its reach; and bottomless in its capacity to transmute wryly-observed public fictions into inescapable private truths that all more or less boil down to: I am woman, hear me ruminate. She performs at the Keswick Theater tomorrow night in support of her acclaimed 2018 album Hell-On and we have a couple pairs of tix to give away to two lucky Phawker readers. To qualify to win, all you have to do is sign up for our mailing list (see right, below the masthead). Trust us, this is something you want to do. In addition to breaking news alerts and Phawker updates, you also get advanced warning about groovy concert ticket giveaways and other free swag opportunities like this one! After signing up, send us an email at PHAWKER66@GMAIL.COM telling us a much (or that you are so cool, you’ve long been on our mailing list), with the words NEKOPHILIA in the subject line, and the correct answer to this ridiculously easy Neko Case trivia question: What is the name of Neko Case’s other band? Hint: they are based in Vancouver. Include your full name as it appears on your photo ID along with a mobile number for confirmation (FYI, none of this info will be shared or even stored). Good luck and godspeed!
NEKO CASE + MARGARET GLASPY @ KESWICK THEATER FRIDAY JANUARY 25TH
