New Pornographer Kathryn Calder Comes to Boise 

Wednesday, Nov. 9 at Flying M Coffeegarage

Kathryn Calder was 18 years old when her uncle, Carl Newman, asked her to fill in for Neko Case at a few New Pornographers shows. Since then, she's become a permanent member, worked on three NP albums and toured around the world.

The now 24-year-old songwriter has also managed to put out two solo albums. On 2010's Are You My Mother?, Calder penned a number of sweet, piano-driven tracks that highlight her chirpy soprano and hint at greater ambitions.

On 2011's Bright and Vivid, Calder realizes these ambitions with big layers of guitars, keyboards and effects that elevate her sound out of the coffeeshop and into the nightclub. But she hasn't abandoned the coffeeshop. On Wednesday, Nov. 9, Calder will be in Nampa to perform at the Flying M Coffeegarage.
