Tacoma-raised Neko Case brings her signature, commanding alto and a new collection of great songs to the Paramount Theatre. The New Pornographers singer is touring in support of her excellent new solo album, “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You,” which The New York Times described as a mixture of “the lucid and the cryptic,” while noting that Case always sings “like she means it.”

The album showcases the singer’s vocal talents well and also reveals a darker side to her songwriting. Expect those things, as well as a great backing band.

Neko Case:
