Show Time

For someone like me, who is anything but musical, watching people making music is a little like magic. Last night we saw Neko Case and friends make a little more magic. We're not the types that see a lot of live shows, but I think what we lose in quantity, we make up for in quality. This was only the third show I've seen at Massey Hall yet those three shows have been great and memorable (Elvis Costello in '99, Herbie Hancock in '06). Neko Case is really just one of a handful of artists that I have multiple albums of and can recognize most of her songs. Songs that, in many ways, are perfect three or four minute gems.

You might not get to see her in concert but here are a couple of ersatz substitutions (not really the same as being there but close as you can get).

NPR's All Songs Considered posted a Neko Case show from April 9th, 2009 (1hr 32mins).

Neko Case also recorded a live session with the CBC (NOTE: the link opens in iTunes) earlier this year (36 mins).
