Eleanor Friedberger, Hospitality 

When: Fri., April 20, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-14

The legions of female-fronted acts biting Brill Building '60s pop idioms could probably overwhelm 300. What Eleanor Friedberger has on all the Mynabirds, Deschanels, Gemma Rays and Nicole Atkins is that she got a head start on them in her band The Fiery Furnaces with sibling Matthew. Her solo debut, Last Summer, is quirkier than her peers in the arrangements—an obvious holdover from the band. Then again, her vaguely beatnik Adult Pop solo approach is pretty straightforward by comparison. She doesn't have a show-stopping voice, but its sweet girl-next-door manner contributes to her unassuming charm. —Chris Parker
