The prolific solo artist and front woman of The New Pornographers performs to support her seventh studio album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You. Case’s newest work, includes tight ballads and punchy rock songs like “Night Still Comes” and “Man,” explores themes of freedom and womanhood with sardonic humor and simmering intensity.  Lyrics like “If I puked up some sonnets/Would you call me a miracle?” and “I’m a man/ That’s what you raised me to be” unveil an artist who’s traded questions of love and longing for darker subjects—and the quest to defeat them. Karen Elson opens.

Sunday 10/27 $40, 8PM. The Paramount Theater, 215 East Main Street. 434-979-1333.
