Capitol Hill Block Party
July 20-22, 2012
By Matt Ashworth 

Though I’ve seen Neko Case in action several times before, she is who I look forward to seeing most at the Capitol Hill Block Party tonight (7:45, Main Stage).

Alongside excellent originals and collaborations, she has successfully covered Hank Williams, Queen, Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, Heart, The Everly Brothers, Sarah Vaughan, Bob Dylan, Harry Nilsson, Shangri-las, The Zombies, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Loretta Lynn, Tom Waits, and more.

She’s got the voice of an angel, effortlessly switching between the immense beauty of her songs and the dry wit of her between-song banter.

Neko always plays a broad range of stuff from her increasingly robust catalogue and does an incredible cover or two at her shows.

It’s been an amazing weekend of catching great new bands (see White Arrows, Trust) and local favorites (see Brent Amaker, Lemolo), but don’t turn your back on long-time Northwest favorite Neko Case: she won’t disappoint.
