On August 24, Eleanor Friedberger visited the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater for a very special WFMU program, Seven Second Delay! You can now stream the performance, along with appearances by Wyatt Cenac and David Carr, on WFMU.org. You can also listen to her archived World Cafe radio session on NPR.org now. During a recent stop in her hometown of Chicago, Eleanor recorded a takeaway session with Paste which was filmed in one of her favorite guitar shops.
Watch her perform two songs from Last Summer as well as a brand-new tune called “I’ll Never Be Happy Again.”
And last but not least, Eleanor will be at Sonic Boom Records - Ballard for an in-store performance on September 6 at 6pm. This will be her only appearance in the Seattle area on this tour, though, so mark your calendars!
Last Summer is in stores now and available from Merge on CD, LP, and digital download.
