Notes: Neko and her band were wonderful. I didn't want the show to end and wished I could've stayed in San Francisco an extra night to see her again the next day. This show happened on the final night of a 4-night trip I took with my then-boyfriend to Sonoma County and it was a sweet end to what had been some really nice time together. We went to the show with his friend Jordy, who is a huge Neko Case fan. He had a seat up in the balcony, and the boyfriend and I were down on the floor and pretty close to the stage.

I'd definitely go see Neko Case again, but I need some time to pass before I can listen to her without feeling sad. I got into her through the boyfriend, we listened to her a lot when we were together, but we've since broken up and Neko's music just brings up too many heart-breaking memories for me right now.
