Ezra Furman headlined the Fine Line Music Café in Minneapolis on May 31.
The opening of the show was that of Melbourne Grace Cummings. She joined on stage her brother on guitar, Tyler on drums, Lino on bass (she also thanked her driver, “Chef”). The group appeared in good shape, happy to be in Minneapolis this summer.
The highlight of his set was a duet with Ezra Furman, for a cover of Bob Dylan“It’s over now, Baby Blue”.
They ended their set with “Heaven”.
Cumming’s latest album, queen of storms is now available on ATO Records.

We have seen previously Ezra Furman in June 2013, before her transformation into a transgender woman: “Ezra’s performance had a raw garage band vibe to it. His sound reminded me of early White Stripes releases. The clear star of the set was 2012’s “Queen of Hearts” The year of no return. See the setlist to read all songs played, including merchandise encores.
Like the last time we saw Ezra, it still had that “raw, garage” sound, even nine years later. I know his recent work with the netflix series Sex educationhelping her build a new audience… who may not have realized she’s been writing music since 2006 as a Ezra Furman and the Harpoons.
Ezra Furman has mentioned that she will have a new album titled We all Flameswhich is scheduled for release in August 2022 under the Anti– label.
