Neko Case Duets With Meatwad, Announces Nov. Tour

Looks like Neko Case's cyclone is picking up some speed.

The Canadian (brain fart, sorry folks!) chanteuse, whose gorgeous, lush album Middle Cyclone hit #3 on Billboard in the spring, has been gaining momentum all year. The one-time Paste cover star just announced a fall tour that'll take her all over the country.

Last week, Case stopped by New York City to chat with Elvis Costello and tape a segment for his Sundance Channel show, as well as a duet with Meatwad from Cartoon Network's consistently ridiculous and fantastic Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And it wasn't Case's first run in with the talking ball of meat; she guest starred on an ATHF episode just last year. We've long known Case's affinity for animals; apparently it extends to animal products as well.

On Oct. 10, Case will visit Garrison Keillor's A Prarie Home Companion, and just a week later she'll appear at The New Yorker Festival for a chat with Sasha Frere-Jones.
