Eleanor Friedberger

One night before the 4Knots Music Festival too over the space, fire included, it was the last Seaport Music Festival show of the year on Friday (7/13), a nice, if low-key affair (part of the River to River Festival) with Fiery Furnace Eleanor Friedberger. With no new album to plug, Friedberger seemed pretty relaxed and jovial, playing mostly songs off last year’s great Last Summer with added pizaz from sax player Robbie Lee.

The undercard slot went to Ex Cops who were just teriffic, I thought, with a sound that’s some where between New Zealand 1985 and London/Manchester 1992, and great songs like their Other Music debut single “You Are a Lion, I Am a Lamb” and a few that I hadn’t heard before. The band can really play too. Looking forward to their first album, which is due out this fall.

I didn’t catch that much of Zambri‘s opening set, but am a fan of all things slinky, tribal and gothy and have enjoyed their shows in the past.

In addition to more pictures of all three bands below, you can also check out video performances from Friday night’s show.
