Eleanor Friedberger @ Fitzgerald’s 4/26/12 by Howard L.

Walking in to Fitzgerald’s yesterday night I really had no idea of what to expect from Eleanor Friedberger. Was she gonna be an acoustic troubadour? Or perhaps something a little caustic? What i experienced was not quite what i didn’t expect. Haha. She was a suprisingly good blend of quirky bluesy rock with a strong stage presence. Strong enough to present her songs but not totally overpowering to the point where her band wasn’t noticed. They were jammin!
The first part of her set was pretty upbeat and she had a great group of people backing her up. Saw a couple people dancing in the crowd. I would’ve but i was only 2 beers in at the moment. She also had someone introduce her before her set that was pretty depressing. I don’t know if that was by design or not. Strange nonetheless.

The Fitz was a great place to see her live. Sounds acoustics and all were great. Houston, y’all missed out.
