"Mesmerizing" (NME) Chanteuse Begins Tour with Special Hometown Benefit

Acclaimed singer/songwriter Neko Case will take a break from recording in late August to embark on a North American tour that will find her performing at such high-profile festivals as Bumbershoot in Seattle and Austin City Limits.

The appearance probably closest to Neko's heart is the show that will kick off these tours on August 25th at the Rialto in Tucson AZ. The passionate animal enthusiast will donate the earnings from both ticket sales and show posters sales (by artist Kathleen Judge - to the Greyhound Adoption League of Tucson, AZ. Neko also hopes to get information out to the public about the efforts of the Tucson Dog Protection as well. The Greyhound Adoption League seeks to place retired racing greyhounds in permanent, loving homes, while the Tucson Dog Protection is both a non-profit organization and a ballot initiative to improve on the legal treatment of the city's dog population.

Another key event in the upcoming dates is the Stanley Park Singing Exhibition curated by Neko's other band, The New Pornographers. Neko and the Pornographers, Destroyer, Andrew Bird, Deerhoof, the 1900s and Visqueen, are among only some of the international bands that will perform over the two-day festival in Vancouver. Proceeds from the festival will benefit local organizations like the ALS Society of Canada for Lou Gehrig's disease ( and the Urban Native Youth Association (

Neko is currently in the studio, recording her follow-up to 2006's lauded Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. Her new album is expected early in 2009.
