Singer-songwriter Neko Case may be just the opening act, but she has every bit as much, if not more, appeal than Kentucky hippie rockers My Morning Jacket. The Alexandria native has become a superstar in indie/hipster circles, and the appeal is easy to hear, whether on her solo work, such as 2009's Middle Cyclone, or her work in the Canadian alt-pop collective New Pornographers. Friday, Aug. 12. Doors at 5:30 p.m. Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Md. Tickets are $35 to $45. Call 800-551-SEAT or visit merriweathermusic.com.
