Neko Case's Tiny Desk Concert

How's your Halloween hangover? No judgment. Order that sandwich. Here's Neko Case, dressed as a gorilla, I think, and performing with her band at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series yesterday. [NPR]

Exciting! I worship Neko Case, and this picture is especially cool because her new drummer is a guy I used to work with. Way to go, Dan! You're on NPR and all over the place!

Yessss. Gosh, this lady is...such a role model to me, I actually get really emotional talking about how great she is.

@yeah-elle She is my hero. Did you see she's on the cover of the latest issue of Bust magazine?

yeah-elle

@OhMyGoshYouGuys Yes! I bought it. It's a great interview, too. And I liked the photos of her just chillin at home, with her horse and her awesome cat.

@yeah-elle Oh, I am so glad I'm not the only one who gets like this about her. Seriously.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@yeah-elle I want to somehow be her life intern or something. Love her.

Me too! I finally saw her in concert in September, and I cried. You should listen to her on the Nerdist podcast. She is the best. I want to be her friend.

I just found out this morning that an organization I volunteer for is bringing her to town and I can watch for free as long as I usher before hand. November is already so much better than October!

I just saw her perform two nights ago, and she was (as always) amazing! She's apparently had a chest cold for the last two weeks, but continued to perform each night (and at this tiny desk concert). Best part: she named the cold "Chesty Morgan" and dedicated her performance of "That Teenage Feeling" to it!

I just want to let you all know that at her Halloween show in DC, Neko was not dressed as a gorilla; she was dressed as Adam Ant -- if anybody thinks I'm dressed as a pirate, she said, "you're a goddamned fool! I'm Adam Ant circa 1982!"

Bittersweet

@queenofbithynia She sang "Place in the Country" in her encore set the other night in Boston, and I damn near had a happiness conniption. The only way it could've been better is if she'd been dressed as Adam Ant.

Y'all who have seen her this tour, can we talk about the live version of "Ragtime" and how she (and her band) are subbing in their voices for the trumpets at the end and how EMOTIONALLY OVERWHELMING it is???

Here's a live video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZWs2lZK0wk

What I'd give for a good-quality recording of this version!

@yeah-elle I can't listen to that song now without 'bad-da-da-da-da-daaaaing' along, that was such a magical moment out of many magical moments when I saw her play in September. I'm so glad to know that other people have such a weird, emotional connection to her, when I was in my teens and 20s I obsessed over sad men singers but having a strong, hilarious woman to love (with a much better voice than any of those guys, sorry Elliott, it's true)is great, I feel like she's really helped to set me up to be a woman in my 30s and beyond.

yeah-elle

@Heather Thompson@facebook Oh man, though, I still have such a strong emotional connection with Elliott. But yeah, Neko! They're not mutually exclusive. And it adds something specific and irreplaceable that she's a badass female vocalist and each of her new albums has more interesting things to say about gender.

Totally revealing my IRL self on here to any of my friends but I WAS AT THIS SHOW -- some friends of mine got me in last minute on a long weekend trip to DC and she was so lovely and funny and the whole NPR Tiny Desk experience is great and if you're ever in DC try and get tickets somehow, even if it's not an artist you know or love - because it's very intimate and a fun thing to do.

(Also I'm in this video!! Agh!! I think this is the closest I'll ever get to internet fame and I am great with that.)
