The trio consisting of Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus attracted a loyal fanbase after releasing their widely-adored, self-titled EP, boygenius, and embarked on a North American tour in 2018.
The group hasn’t formally played together since their 2018 tour, but members of the trio collaborate frequently. Baker played a surprise opening set for Bridgers at her show in Berkeley, CA during her tour in support of her newest album, Punisher, and the two closed out the night by playing a number of songs together. Bridgers later posted a video on Instagram in which Baker walks onstage to the crowd’s delight. Baker’s most recent album, Little Oblivions, also features backup vocals from Bridgers and Dacus on “Favor”.
