Alt-country chanteuse Neko Case closed out the schedule on the second stage here at All Points West with a mellow, melodic set of ballads (one, “That Teenage Feeling,” was about her “first imaginary boyfriend”) and gentle rockers. Set highlights included swaying renditions of “Hold On, Hold On” and the title track from her most recent album, “Middle Cyclone.”

As Case closed her set and the skies grew dark, the squishy grounds became slightly more solid – mashed down – with the increased foot traffic. The crowd of approximately 25,000 was now left with two stages to choose from: the main stage, at the South end of the grounds, and the “Queen of the Valley” stage, which was all the way on the north end, about a mile away.
