Tonight’s Concert Pick: Eleanor Friedberger (of The Fiery Furnaces) at Kung Fu Necktie
Eleanor Friedberger may be best known as one half of the brother/sister indie pop-rock duo The Fiery Furnaces, but this July will mark a new direction for the Brooklyn-based musician. With her first solo album, Last Summer, out tomorrow on Merge Records, Friedberger is kicking off a 10-stop tour in support. The album has a sound unique to that of the Furnaces, and is full of pretty guitars and keyboards, New York City themes, and thoughtful lyrics. The first single “My Mistakes” is a light, feel-good track that proves Friedberger’s aptitude as a solo artist. Eleanor Friedberger performs at Kung Fu Necktie at 8 p.m.; tickets to the 21+ show are $10.
