Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus form ‘boygenius’ supergroup


What the world needs now are supergroups, and nothing feels more super than Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus making music together.

The trio of musicians today unveiled a project titled boygenius, and the EP is out November 9 via Matador. They’ll also hit the road together (hot damn), performing solo sets at each stop, and early on in their North American run is a November 8 show at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre. Listen to three songs off the six-track EP below.

“When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors,” says Baker, “but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity.”


This is pretty magical. Full dates below.
