Is This A 1) Dallas Lawfirm; 2) Store At Northpark; 3) Deep Ellum Brewery? Answer:
None of the above! But you know the musical trio, even if the name doesn’t sound familiar. case/lang/veirs combines k.d. lang, Neko Case and Laura Veirs: one legendary musical nomad, one avant-rock icon, and one indie folk star who each have impressive solo catalogs. Some of us here at the Center chose which of their solo songs we hope will make the set-list for their August 4 show in the Winspear Opera House. Do you agree with this list?
k.d. lang is an iconic, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter who has traversed different genres for more than 25 years. You know her heart-wrenching hit “Constant Craving” and remember when she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair with Cindy Crawford.
“Busy Being Blue”
You know Neko Case’s auburn hair and even more colorful voice, as part of the group The New Pornographers, and for getting “blacklisted” from The Grand Ole Opry.
“Hold On, Hold On”
“Night Still Comes”
You’ve heard about Laura Veirs on NPR, and remember when she did the entire soundtrack for the movie Hello I Must Be Going. And maybe she’s when you realized that Seattle produces more than just grunge.
