Indie-rock sensation Neko Case brings her unique and extraordinary voice to Santa Rosa in her Luther Burbank Center for the Arts(The Center) debut performance on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 8 p.m. Tickets range in price from $30–$40 and are available now online at lutherburbankcenter.org, by calling 707-546-3600 or at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts ticket office (50 Mark West Springs Road in Santa Rosa).
Born in 1970, and raised all over working-class Washington state, Neko Case spent a turbulent childhood shuffling between divorced and uninterested parents, and often alone. This is one reason she is an ardent collaborator, working with a huge roster of Canadian and American artists throughout her career, and thriving as a member of indie-pop supergroup the New Pornographers and other projects alongside her solo work.
She was playing and touring with bands for a decade before she realized it was her job. Now more than 20 years into her sensational career, Neko Case is the consummate career artist – fearless and versatile, with a fierce work ethic and a constant drive to search deeper within herself for creative growth. Nowhere is that clearer than in “Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule,” a stunning vinyl box set of Case’s complete solo discography that was released in November of 2015 by Anti- label.
“The release of this set gives listeners an excuse to appreciate the scope of one of the most individual and passionate artists making music today,” says Anti-label head Andy Kaulkin. “When you take it all in, Neko’s journey from punk/country torchbearer to avant-pop icon has been staggering. This box makes a strong case for her fierceness of vision, pristine musical craft, unflinching lyrics, and of course…that voice!”
All eight titles – “The Virginian” (1997), “Furnace Room Lullaby” (2000), “Canadian Amp” (2001), “Blacklisted” (2002), “The Tigers Have Spoken” (2004), “Fox Confessor Brings the Flood” (2006), “Middle Cyclone” (2009), and “The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You” (2013) – are remastered from their original analog tape and made available on 180 gram black vinyl, some for the first time in years, or ever. The set also includes an 80-page, limited-edition, full-color book of photography, designed and curated by Neko Case herself.
