Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces) is playing at the Hotel Utah on 7/26/11

If spectators were at all surprised at the choice to host the recent Fiery Furnaces' show at the relatively small Cafe Du Nord, they should be even more surprised to see where one half of the Furnaces, Eleanor Friedberger, will be playing a solo show on July 26th: the rather tiny Hotel Utah (9:00 pm, $10, 21+). Todd's review of the small-scale FF show mentioned that "the Fiery Furnaces stripped down are revealed as a private universe of neurotic genius made public – sort of like the music the twins in Vonnegut’s Slapstick might have made" and that "Eleanor's voice [...]
