Show Review: Rufus Wainwright/Neko Case/A Fine Frenzy

8/09/07 Voodoo Lounge, Kansas City

We arrived at the Voodoo Lounge Thursday night and A Fine Frenzy had already started. Besides the singer, Alison Sudel, being strikingly beautiful she also has a really strong voice. I suspect with the Alison's aesthetic appeal and the non threatening radio friendly music they play that A Fine Frenzy will probably end up being relatively popular, they just didn't do it for me.

To be honest, I could listen to Neko Case sing just about any song ever written and enjoy it so her song selection doesn't matter a whole lot to me. She played a few songs from her last two albums, a cover, and closed with a fantastic new song. Her set was a little short but, once again, I am never disappointed when I see Neko live.

Neither my girlfriend or I are big Rufus Wainwright fans but we both appreciate his talents. We ended up leaving a bit early because I had a headache but we did stay long enough to hear him dedicate a couple of songs to Toby Keith who has a bar & grill inside the same casino as the Voodoo Lounge. I think almost everyone can appreciate the humor in that.
