Eleanor Friedberger with Her Band
Eleanor Friedberger with Her Band

Who is Eleanor Friedberger? Friedberger is previously known for her work in Chicago power-pop harmonie-musik The Fiery Furnaces, a band she created with her brother Matthew at the turn of the millennium. They’re too modest to mention that they’ve won a number of awards, sold out happenings the world over and made nine albums, most recently Take Me Round Again, a collection of cover songs from their previous album. That experience, combined with the fact that The Fiery Furnaces aren’t breaking up, inspired her to make her first solo record, Last Summer, last summer.

In the music, you will hear the casual confrontation of the most emotionally direct Fiery Furnaces songs, plus a lot of snap, crackle and pop. In fact, in these songs made of memories, you will hear the future. She will be performing with members of Caribou, Yeasayer, MGMT and Be Your Own Pet.
Dominant Legs
Dominant Legs
Dominant Legs are a boy/girl duo from San Francisco who make hazy, wistful pop music that’s also hummable and upbeat. Hannah Hunt’s beautiful but fragile vocals form the backdrop for Ryan Lynch’ s warbly croon (think part David Bowie, part Stuart Murdoch). The guitars jangle and the vocals are washed in reverb, the perfect accompaniment for both regretful longing and positive forward thinking—a confusing juxtaposition, I know. Look for their first EP, Young at Love and Life, that came out late last year on Lefse Records.
