A drive worth taking in November: Neko Case at Orlando's Plaza Theatre

She plays The Plaza Theatre in Orlando on Thursday, November 19. Those Tampa folks who have to see her have a bit of a drive ahead of us. But isn't everyone piling into a car and carrying on about how you love the particular artist you're going to see part of the experience anyway? Yes, I believe it is.

Tickets for the show are currently on sale through Ticketmaster as well as via The Plaza Theatre and Moon websites. Don't procrastinate! The Orlando show WILL sell out and I have a feeling it'll be a show to remember.

Hope to see you there!

Neko Case's video for "People Got A Lotta Nerve" from Middle Cyclone

Are you like me in the way of feeling left out when a band or songwriter goes on tour and doesn't come to Florida? You get their bulletin on MySpace announcing their tour and then you discover Florida is nowhere on the list of dates.

You see Atlanta and then Charleston, S.C., and for that split second you don't see a Florida show nestled in between those two cities, all your dreams are crushed. We are neglected because of our place on the map. It's not because of the people, it's because of the dollar sign at the gas pumps. But I'm not here to be political and complain about it. I've always try to be a glass half-full kind of person who appreciates whatever life does or doesn't offer to me. Such is the life of a music fan living in West Central Florida.

However, we have much to celebrate. Neko Case, the red-haired Virginian songstress who has ruled my iPod this year (and probably many others') with her album Middle Cyclone, is coming down to Florida! (Video and info after the jump.)
