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.

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…
