Neko Case At The Paramount November 29, 2018
Sold out show, played for two hours, with four encores. Rachel Flotard from Visqueen on backing vocals. They did 10 of the 12 tracks from the new album Hell On, starting the set with the last tune, "Pitch and Honey." These new tunes are bomber. Also did choice numbers from back catalog. Great arrangements of these compositions live. Lots of dynamics, blending intimacy with big sound. Neko's voice filled the hall with expected magic. Lots of guitars -- here's to the guitar tech on the show cause they rotated a lot of guitars across multiple musicians. What a great songwriter, defying convention or genre. Stage banter was off the cuff, funny.
