ALT-ROCK | Eleanor Friedberger



Enigmatic, melodic — there are many words that can describe Eleanor Friedberger's other band, The Fiery Furnaces. Lead singer Friedberger's own music however is conventional compared to the sprawling weirdness of the Furnaces, a brother-sister act that has played at the Bug Jar. With the band on hiatus, she has embarked on a solo career that has seen her tour in Europe and release a third album, "New View."  The record references vintage West Coast folk that is made even better by Friedberger's creative mind. Icewater opens the show.

Eleanor Friedberger performs Sunday, February 21, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9:30 p.m. $13-$17.;
