Fans of the former New Pornographer/current alt-country sweetheart who were crushed by the sound disaster that marred her ACL Festival set (she was pummelled by Atoms for Peace) will be thrilled to hear that Neko Case is coming back to Austin next month.

Case headlines a stellar bill put together to celebrate the first birthday of KUTX98.9FM, the all-music sister station of local NPR affiliate KUT 90.5 FM that launched early this year. In addition to Case, Central Texas song-spinners Iron & Wine and quirky indie rockers Thao & the Get Down Stay Down will perform.

The show is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2014 at Bass Concert Hall. Tickets are priced from $39.50 to $59.50 and go on sale on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. through TexasPerformingArts.org.
