Talk about night and day, I left an all ages K-Pop show at the Palace filled with teenagers that screamed for each song of the house music, drove a couple of miles to 21+ show at the Turf Club to see Dan Bejar’s project Destroyer.
Opening was NYC’s Eleanor Friedberger. I had caught her a couple of years ago a the Cedar and found myself captured by her quiet energy. Last night was no different. Friedberger has what the French call “Je ne sais quois” there’s just something about them that pulls you in and forces you to pay attention. She builds her song and you need to pay attention to the lyrics too.
