Eleanor Friedberger is heading to Texas. The other half of the Fiery Furnaces is hitting up SXSW as well as setting up a residency in Ballroom Marfa for a week where she will record a limited edition 7-inch with Gory Smelley of the Marfa Recording Company.
 
After wrapping dates as the “Special Guest Musician” on the Portlandia tour with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, Friedberger is also heading out on tour this April with labelmates Hospitality. On this tour, she’ll be backed by her full band, which includes Matt Asti (MGMT), Ahmed Gallab (touring member of Yeasayer and Caribou) and John Eatherly (Be Your Own Pet and Turbo Fruits).
