Before her first Florida gig in a decade, Neko Case talks about finding her inspiration



For the first time in more than a decade Neko Case is coming to Florida.

The alt-country chanteuse's sixth solo record, Middle Cyclone, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 pop chart in March, and has already crowned it best album of the year.

Case performs at 7 p.m. tonight at the Plaza Theatre, 425 N Bumby Ave., Orlando. $28. (407) 228-1220. Click here for details.

On the phone, though, calling from her farm in rural Vermont, the charming Case sounds like an eager, unsigned artist, chatting about inspiration in household chores.

"It comes out when my physical self is more engaged," she said. "Like when I'm sweeping or showering or doing the dishes or whatever."
