Neko Case Brings New Tunes to Radio City Music Hall Tonight

September 26th, 2013

Smoky-voiced singer-songwriter Neko Case was first introduced to the world as part of the Canadian indie group the New Pornographers. She began releasing highly regarded solo material—first as Neko Case with Her Boyfriends and then solely under her own name—in 1997, making a winning mix of alt-country originals and covers and earning a reputation as an energetic live performer. Her most recent effort, The Worse Things Get the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight the More I Love You (stream it below), came out earlier this month. NME calls it a “gorgeously full offering” and “typically sumptuous and lusciously heart-rending.” And the best part is that Neko Case (above, performing “Night Still Comes” for Studio Q) will play cuts from the new album at the plushest room in town, tonight at Radio City Music Hall—and New Pornographers frontman AC Newman opens.
