These shows will be hell-on good.
Neko Case returns to DC for two nights, performing at the Lincoln Theatre on January 26th and 27th. I’m overdue to experience one her shows, as I last saw her perform live in 2013, also at the Lincoln Theatre.
Neko is touring for her seventh solo indie rock album, Hell-On, released in mid-2018. In between Hell-On and her last album, she collaborated with k.d. Land and Laura Veirs for the case/lang/veirs tour and album, and sang for the latest album by The New Pornographers, a ‘side-project’ band she has been a part of since 1997.
From Hell-On, the “Last Lion of Albion” is a full-on choral song, about erasing nature through greed.
Another song, “The Curse of the I-5 Corridor”, is right up my alley, having grown up next to I-5 in Washington State. She performs the ballad as a duet with Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees’ lead singer).
Tickets for the first night are sold out, but you can still go on Sunday the 27th or hit the resale sites.

Tickets are $46. Doors open at the Lincoln Theatre at 6:30pm. Opener is Margaret Glaspy.
