Neko Case: Live in Dallas
We endured what is possibly Dallas' lamest venue last night to see the lovely Neko Case, and she made it all worthwhile. Highlights included Neko ripping the city of Houston ("We'd never fucking play Houston...because Eddie Money lives there, and he's a fucking mean guy"), a goosebump-inducing version of my favorite track from Fox Confessor Brings the Flood ("Maybe Sparrow"), and a foot-stomping cover of Dylan's "Buckets of Rain".
I also picked up a copy of Neko's amazing tour-only EP, Canadian Amp, which includes this Neil Young cover:

If Neko comes through your town, it's worth the price of admission just for the chance to get this EP. Here are some photos of the lovely Ms. Case (click for larger image):
