Neko Case might have gotten her start in Tacoma, but the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter seldom makes returns appearances to the South Sound.
That all changes on April 16 when she’ll play Olympia’s Capitol Theater with Brazilian singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante.
Tickets are on sale now for the 8 p.m. Olympia Film Society show.
Case has made a career both as a soloist and as part of groups like Canadian indie rockers New Pornographers. She’s ranged from country to indie rock but is often described as genre-defying.
Her latest release, “The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You,” came out in 2013 and reached No. 1 on the indie chart as did her 2009 album, “Middle Cyclone,” which also netted two Grammy nominations.
Amarante is a founding member of Brazilian rock band Los Hermanos and samba group Orquestra Imperial. After leaving Brazil in 2008 he formed the group Little Joy.
General admission tickets are $30 advance and OFS members, $35 day of show. Tickets are available here and at the OFS box office (5-9:30 p.m.).
