      Neko Case Announces 15-Date U.S. Tour
      Backing band, The Wafers, packaged and shipped to inner-city mercados

      Rod Waterman reports:
      The very sonorous Neko Case has just announced her preparation to tour the
      living shit out of her latest offering, Blacklisted. The 15-date tour will
      take her all across this krazy kountry, beginning with a performance
      opening for the Indigo Girls at the flossed-out Chicago Theater in, um,
      Chicago. After this, she'll wander through St. Louis (aka Nellyville),
      Kansas and Colorado before heading through the south, and finally
      collapsing, spent, in Seattle at the end of the month.

      Neko will be joined on much of this tour by by Freakwater's Catherine
      Irwin, who is touring in support of her Thrill Jockey-released solo album,
      Cut Yourself a Switch, and by Mint Records labelmate Carolyn Mark, who
      herself is promoting a recent album with Her Room-Mates titled Terrible
      Hostess. Neko Case and Carolyn Mark collaborated as a duo in 2000 for The
      Other Women, a full-length album they recorded under the guise of Corn
      Sisters. Tourdates:

      Case has spent much of the last year in the recording studio, working on
      Blacklisted in Chicago, as well as contributing to the highly anticipated
      follow-up to the New Pornographers' debut, Mass Romantic. As publicists
      have been unusually tight-lipped about the forthcoming Pornographers LP,
      not much is known about it as yet. It is, however, tentatively scheduled
      for a May release, and will feature all of the original members-- including
      Destroyer's Dan Bejar, who was rumored to have left the band in 2001.
