An Early Christmas Present From Neko Case

Speaking of Neko, my wife and I drove down to Seattle to see her show with The Sadies last Sunday. Unfortunately, Neumo's decided to let more people in than the club could comfortably hold and we had to listen to the show from just outside the bathrooms, smelling urinal cakes and stale beer the whole time. Down the hallway we could barely see Neko's head, but couldn't hear the show very well. There was a tightly packed wall of people at the entrance to the main room. We weren't willing to fight people to get in, so after a few songs we decided to bag it and drive home. Hopefully she'll play a much bigger venue (perhaps the Showbox) next time. I talked to the club afterward and they gave me free tickets to the Ocean Blue show this Friday. Hopefully that'll be a better experience!
