a Message from Kathleen...
Yes, a message from Kathleen...
Hey all-If you don't watch TV, like me, thought I'd let you know in advance about a friends band who'll be on the Tonight Show.
Neko Case (music act - so i think they usually play towards end of show) NBC?s Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 9
Strangely not only is the band composed of friends, but largely folks I have either lived with or currently live with....is the water in our 100 yr old building responsible for this? I keep drinking it, but my ukelelee playing has yet to improve..?
Here's the Band:NEKO CASE (singer, guitars) http://www.nekocase.com/ http://www.thenewpornographers.com/
KELLY HOGAN (backup singing) currently plays with a million bands http://www.bloodshotrecords.com/artists/kellyhogan/
RACHEL FLOTARD (backup singing) currently plays in VISQUEEN http://www.visqueenonline.com/
JON RAUHOUSE (pedal steel, guitar, banjo, hawaiian guitar) has played with too many to list http://www.jonrauhouse.com/

I first saw Neko Case in the goth-operatic setting of the Chicago Theater opening for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. She had a tiny band and looked small on that big stage in front of thousands of people. She wowed the crowd who obviously didn't know who she was. During a moody lull in one of her songs someone cried earnestly from the crowd "who are you?" Neko Case brother!
