    My world is crashing around me. I always thought Neko Case was Canadian. People in Vancouver talk about her like she is from the town. I had no idea she was America and only came to Vancouver to go to college. You learn something new every day, I guess.

    When did she get this DUI? Cuz she played a sold out solo show in Vancouver a few months back and last year she performed in the city with The New Pornographers.

    Dude, Canada is so ridiculously strict about border entry with DUIs. Like, even if you got it 10, 20, years ago, they'll refuse you at the border - though apparently it depends on the border agent.

    Well, that is what I am wondering. This DUI must have been in the past couple on months, because she has performed in Canada very recently and she seems to go in between countries quite a lot.

    St. Vincent was god-tier. Favorite discoveries were B.A. Johnston and Hello Moth. B.A. spent half the set running around the crowd ripping off layers of silly sweatshirts and rolling around the floor while singing songs about having a deep fryer in his bedroom. Hello moth was a one man show and would loop various sounds like making a smacking sound with his mouth before crooning.

    No, that's what I'm saying -- it could have been entirely up to the discretion of the border agent not to let her in, despite the fact that she's made it through before.

    She tweeted this in 2012:
    Got pulled over for DUI! I LOVE doing the "test" cuz I haven't been drunk in YEARS! In your face, The Man! And yes, I'll turn my lights on..
    So I imagine it was from long ago.

    I guess I don't know enough about the situation, but if she did get the DUI back "years" before 2012, it would seem strange it would take until 2014 for to get stopped at the boarder for it. Like you said, it depends on the boarder crossing agent... but it just strikes me as odd it would take so long for someone to finally go "Wooooooooooah there. Nope. You can't cross," when she has done it so often. You are probably right though. Probably just some dick of a boarding crossing agent.

    If you get the wrong agent on the wrong day, the Canadian border can be brutally strict about lots of crap, DUI's, or any sort of assault, even a minor domestic dispute can hold you back. This happened to another male artist recently and I can't recall who it was.

    Yeah if you have a DUI from 10 years ago or more, you can apply for a reinstatement or something, but it's like a $600 process. I've also read that you can sometimes pay the fee right there at the border and do the paperwork, but again, it depends. When I recently went to Canada for the first time my DUI was like exactly 10 years old and I just hoped for the best and luckily made it through, but I'm definitely prepared to be turned away in the future.

    Neko was a no-show at this July 14th 2010 Vancouver show. Since it was Pornos show nobody thought much of it("delayed in Vermont"), despite being scheduled to appear.

    She was there the next night at the same venue. Very odd to only be present at the 2nd night

    She was on Vancouver's Mint records for a good decade up to 2006.

    I should also add she played several Canadian shows in about a month ago.

    She can also dish it as well as take if you've ever heard her stage banter.
