A few days after this concert, which supports alt-country crooner Neko Case’s excellent Middle Cyclone album, the singer is auctioning off the 1967 Mercury Cougar featured on the Cyclone album cover through her website. (Other prizes include a drum head signed by her and her bandmates in the New Pornographers and dinner for 10 at Chipotle.) While this act is charitable–as proceeds benefit the 826 National organization, which helps grade-school students with creative writing–this auction could mean she’s finally ready to move on from Cyclone, her most successful album, which charted at No. 3. With Lost in the Trees.
