According to Pitchfork (http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/news/41592/Neko_Case_Adds_Shows_to_Spring_Tour) Neko Case will be joining the New Pornographers onstage at Coachella, which is fantastic news. I've seen them 4 times, twice with her and twice without, and the band exudes a whole new level of energy with her onstage.

You really had a doubt that she wouldn't play with them at Coachella?

I can tell you that i thought I would never pay to see her again as the two times I saw her she did nothing but act like a pain in the ass and argued with the sound man between every song.

I'm not exaggeriting, they were both pissing eachother off and it got worse as the night went on. She played for a full 45 minutes and did zero encores. I guessing you can clock the ranting about sound in at about 20 min. Huge disapointment. Love the cd's though.

I am more interested to know if Dan Bejar will play, Destroyer would make an amazing addition.

Is this true?
What about the other singer they got to replace Neko Case? (Sorry I dont know her name) What is she going to do? Just... not be onstage?

I saw the New Pornographers at Lollapalooza last summer. Neko was not with them. A.C. Newman's neice handled the female vocals. She also plays keyboards either way.

Ohhhh ok that makes sense. I just thought that would kinda suck for her if she just got kicked off a couple gigs to make room for thier old lead singer haha. But she plays keyboards, so thats cool.
I cant wait for them now!

Today, pitchfork reported "Case and Bejar will not appear with the band on their currently scheduled dates, but they hope to have at least Case join them when they tour in support of the new album in the fall" and listed Coachella among the referenced dates. Boo

What do you mean? The New Pornographers are still playing. Just not with Neko.

No Neko and No Bejar means no thanks. The whole appeal of the NPs to me is the harmonizing of Neko and Newman.

From Pitchfork:

Case also has a trio of shows with the New Pornographers, two of which are at festivals: Langerado and Coachella. UPDATE: Case isn't playing Langerado with the band, and it's up in the air whether or not she's playing Coachella with them.

Damn that sucks. Are all of them even going to be on the new album? I really hope the full band is together for their fall tour dates. I love this band, but without all the members, it is not the same.
