Still Fighting: Neko Case In Madison TONIGHT (5.14.14)

Neko Case

Tickets are still available to see the incredible Neko Case take the stage at the Orpheum Theater this evening (Wednesday, May 14) in support of her latest album, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You.

Before rolling into town, Case chatted with 77 Square about what she’s been up to and the hardships that inspired her recent music.   If her recent performance on Conan is any indication, tonight’s show will be electrifying and unforgettable.  We hope to see you there!

Evansville’s Kelly Hogan On The Road With Neko Case

Kelly Hogan

The talented Miss Kelly Hogan was recently featured in a Daily Page interview as she is currently on tour exercising her vocal pipes alongside the one-and-only Neko Case.  The tour will return the Evansville resident nearly back to her own backyard when the crew makes a stop at the Orpheum Theater on May 14 (tickets here).

We’re so proud of this local artist and had a lot of fun reading her musings from the tour so far.  Click here to find out what it’s like to hit the road alongside Neko, besides all the “tampons and Jägermeister.”

NEW PORNOGRAPHERS Orpheum Theatre

The weekend’s so close, we can almost taste it!  What are your plans for the upcoming days of freedom from “the man”?

Our Smoke Free Sounds Series will be taking us on a road trip to Oshkosh, WI for a show with the always charming Cory Chisel later this evening.  We’ll return to Madison on Sunday for a performance from Dessa (one of our absolute favorite ladies of hip hop) at the High Noon Saloon.  Naturally, we hope you’ll join us!

Until then, please enjoy a few of Christian Hansen’s beautiful photos from when indie veterans The New Pornographers took over The Orpheum Theatre with The Dodos on August 4th. Stay tuned for another live concert photo post coming up later today…

New Pornographers

Just like the title says, if you’re hoping for the chance to see some of indie rock’s finest pop masters live in concert for free, then you’ve come to the right place!

We’re thrilled to welcome The New Pornographers back to Madison for their show at The Orpheum (tickets still available for purchase here) this Wednesday, August 4th.  Their latest release, Together, has been called “another masterstroke,” “explosive and infectious yet tight and glossy,” and sure to “satisfy orchestral-rock geeks and hook-heads” by the music press.  Yup, it sure is hard not to love these guys…

Enter to win a pair of tix after the jump.

Artists You Should Know: The New Pornographers

New Pornographers

Since the beginning of rock n’ roll, two factors have lead the cause of band breakups:  1) veering creative differences of lead singers and 2) interband sexual tension.  However, even after 13 years, The New Pornographers truck on tighter than ever, despite 3 lead singers, 2 songwriters, and an overwhelming amount of male and female talent.

With the majority of the band’s members playing multiple instruments, The New Pornos are heavily armed in their instrumentation arsenal. Wurlitzers, mandolins and banjos hide in the cervices of twangy rhythm guitars and subtle bass lines. But a crowded stage doesn’t lead to a crowded sound. The New Pornos understand the “less is more” philosophy. Despite an overpowering mass of instruments and vocal microphones, members share the limelight, and unselfish musicianship allows it to all come together.

Pop hooks have always been piled high by The New Pornos, which is why they are careful to make sure their riffs don’t sound too familiar. “We’re jamming so many influences together all at the same time that it’s too dense a salad to be something that you could put your finger on or pick apart,” said bassist John Collins in an interview with the Cornell Sun.

The New Pornographers’ sound manages to straddle the fine line between indie and mainstream, snagging fans from multiple generations and musical palettes. While “scene-cred” was probably never a concern for the band, they’ve earned it nonetheless.

Canadian indie-pop outfit The New Pornographers bring their indie-pop mojo to the historic Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday, August 4.  The Dodos kick off the night at 8pm.  Get your tickets here.
