    I know they’re at Coachella, but I’m pretty interested if they plan on touring together this year and what that looks like. Bridgers is the only one with dates plan with a run overseas this winter and then a smaller run of dates in May. I would imagine tickets will be insane, given their bump in popularity the last couple years since the first EP

    Fuck I hate driving up for midweek LA shows.

    edit: and the opener is Soccer Mommy but I was hoping for The Beths primarily. Might not force it.

    Why Bonnie was great last night. Super weird show though. There were like 30-40 of us in the music hall and they had a DJ in the main bar room you could hear between songs.

    Except seeing James McMurtry at the gallery above the Continental Club in Austin I think that's the most "intimate" show I've ever been to. Pre-Covid it was what you'd expect for the opener no one ever heard of.

    Re-reading the Rolling Stone piece (https://www.rollingstone.com/music/...s-lucy-dacus-the-record-interview-1234660514/). Hadn't considered the SZA line being about Conor, but it makes a lot of sense.

    “You don’t hear enough about how people become successful and then happy,” she continues. “I’m able to hire my best friends to travel the world with me, and I don’t have any shitty people around anymore.”

    That line, by the way, recalls the verse Bridgers contributed to “Ghost in the Machine,” a standout track on SZA’s S.O.S.: “You said all my friends are on my payroll/You’re not wrong, you’re an asshole.” Some fans theorized that bit was about (Paul) Mescal, while I wondered if it was Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst, her bandmate in Better Oblivion Community Center, whom she is rumored to have also dated. Later, when I phone Bridgers and ask if that’s the case, she says, “I do not recall, as a politician would say.” She’s equally vague about the future of BOCC, saying, “I don’t know.”
