Neko Case:She's only the hottest, cockiest, most overpowering singer to ever appear at Twangfest. So fear her, perhaps, but don't hate her for her talent. Those who know only Case's New Pornographer indie-rock persona are missing a devastating country stylist, a voice that's timeless just because it makes time disappear. Her solo studio work has never fully captured that force, but last year's live album, The Tigers Have Spoken, with its far-ranging, smart and obscure covers, comes as close to the true Neko as this Saturday night finale surely will.
Sleep:This is something we recommend you do a lot of before Twangfest starts, as downtime is scarce. Doctors recommend an average of eight hours per night, of course, but you'll want to cut down to less than four on the festival days, so you need to charge your batteries beforehand. After-hours pool diving at the Twangfest Hotel (location and details readily available from a tipsy, off-duty volunteer) isn't recommended, but come Saturday, it might be just the wake-up trick you'll need.
