Neko Case in Broadway NEKO CASE
The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
Dramatic, gutsy, mysterious, powerful-you name it, that's Neko Case. With fearless songwriting and musical curiosity, Case is "a music legend for our generation' (Bust) who treats Americana as a wellspring of weirdness, not a retro refuge. On her Grammy-nominated 2013 album The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You, the singer charts a powerfully personal course across the rocky landscape of childhood, love, and loss. Called "the most potent album of her career" by Pitchfork, Case and her band create music that's a world unto itself. In this special benefit, the Vermont resident generously performs with her band to support the Flynn and Catamount Arts. All proceeds from the performance support the arts education programs of both organizations.
