Eleanor Friedberger & band @ Europa
Eleanor Friedberger

After checking out Guided By Voices earlier in the day, Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger played Europa instead of St. Cecilia's Church on Saturday (6/18) as part of the Northside Festival. The show was opened by Ida, Rebecca Gates, and Spectre Folk. To make that lineup even more exciting, Ted Leo showed up as a secret guest to perform a set right before Eleanor (the second time Ted played Europa in less than a month). Bradford Cox was among the Northside attendees at the Brooklyn show which is pictured in this post.

Ted Leo @ Europa
Ted Leo

If you missed Ted at Europa, catch him as a special guest again on Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen at Littlefield this Monday (6/27). He also plays a free 4Knots Fest kickoff show at Seaport on July 9. He won't be at the actual 4Knots Fest, but Eleanor will (and, as announced today, so will Mr. Dream, the band featuring ex-Village Voice writer Nick Sylvester).

Back in February Eleanor took part in a Loser's Lounge tribute to Queen show at Joe's Pub. Backed by an 8+ member ensemble, she got her Freddie Mercury on to "You're My Best Friend". Check out the video, and more pictures from the Northside show below...

Eleanor is great. Can't wait for her album.

Agreed - I would not have called myself a fan of hers at all prior to this show, but I enjoyed it and I would definitely check out her next record.

10:53 you can't spell 'jacoozi boyz' correctly either. BV is fascist.

Seems like the censorship is very arbitrary. Hummus gets a pass?

Anyway, those are some awesome dungarees that Eleanor has on.

that was a really good show. I've heard lots of Fiery Furnaces live for years but I really like Eleanor's new stuff - poppier? but still indubitably HER unique stuff. The drummer Michael Goodman and the MGMT bassist were both really great behind her, too.

Bradford Cox from Deerhunter was in the audience and talked a lot w/Eleanor afterward. It was like tall skinny cool music styleee meetup.
