Smart Bets: Casey Neill

Casey Neill and his backing band, The Norway Rats have “all been in the trenches of the Northwest music world together since the mid ’90s,” says the musician. Even before forming the band, he was performing in the U.S. and around the globe. So while Neill is hardly a newcomer to the music scene, it could be said that he’s firmly stepped into his own with his band’s latest album release, All You Pretty Vandals. It’s an anthemic, junkyard rock album that Neill says he’s “spent a decade trying to get to — both my own writing and the sound of the band.” Neill plays solo at the Madison County Arts Center on Saturday, June 7, at 8 p.m. $15.
