No Neko

Worst news ever! My excitement for this Sunday's New Pornographers/Okkervil River show has been slightly tempered by this news that Neko Case is leaving the tour due to an ankle injury :( . I'm guessing Carl Newman's niece Kathryn Calder will step in on her parts? I've seen her do so before and she has proven to be an able substitute, but still, it just won't be the same.

sucks for you. i was at the richmond show on wednesday night - i had read that neko was "sick" in DC, but then she came out on crutches and sat on a stool the whole time. she seemed to be in pretty good spirits and made a joke about cat power attacking her with a metal rod. at the end of the set, most of the band walked off but she decided to stay on the stool, so carl and kathryn stayed too. kathryn's not a bad replacement, though.
