this totally ruled
Neko’s voice is 100% as amazing live. Actually it’s even better because you get to hear her fill up a theatre instead of just your headphones. Also, she’s hilarious! Stage banter was consistently on-point. She and her band (a trio of elder beardos) were touring for their boxset, so i got to hear a nice selection from all her records. Excellent show, i’d see her again in a heartbeat.
Fun story, i used to work at a grocery store and Neko went through my line once. I liked the New Pornographers at the time but wasn’t familiar with her music yet, so i just knew her name. Still made a O_O face involuntarily when i saw it on her receipt. she saw my expression and gave me an awkward smile. We didn’t talk or anything though.
If i could go back to that moment i wouldn’t change anything i did because i don’t like hounding musicians/celebs, i’d just appreciate the moment more.
(Okay i might have at least given a weak “i love ur music”)
