Indie songstress Eleanor Friedberger, the female half of brother-sister duo Fiery Furnaces, has been exploring in recent years what it is like to be a solo artist. Soon after announcing Fiery Furnaces’ hiatus in 2011, Eleanor released Last Summer, the solo album that proclaimed her ability to write, record, and perform successfully independent of her brother Matthew. Earlier this month, nearly two years after Last Summer, Friedberger released her sophomore solo album Personal Record, which has reaffirmed the poppy songbird’s penchant for creative, observant storytelling.
With Personal Record in tow, Friedberger makes her way across the country, with a stop nearby at U Street Music Hall, before departing for the United Kingdom. Playing in support of Friedberger are up-and-coming indie-psych band TEEN, who have been releasing music through DC's own Carpark Records.
