Phoebe Bridgers covered Tom Petty & played her new LP at Baby’s (pics, video)

After releasing her excellent, heartbreaking debut album Stranger in the Alps (on Dead Oceans), Phoebe Bridgers made her way to NYC for a sold-out release show at Baby’s All Right on Wednesday (10/4). (She also played a pre-release show in LA the day before the album came out.) Phoebe played every song on the new album, including the cover of Sun Kil Moon & The Album Leaf’s “You Missed My Heart,” which she encored with. She also honored Tom Petty, who passed away this week, with a cover of “It’ll All Work Out” from his 1987 album Let Me Up (I’ve Had Enough) (which was also used on the soundtrack for Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown). She played it solo with just a guitar and her voice, and really made it sound like her own song. Watch a video of the cover below.

The show was opened by Lionlimb and COTE. Pictures are in the gallery above.

Sara Bareilles was in attendance at the Baby’s show and posted an Instagram, writing, “What a lyricist. What a writer. Truly. Raw and poignant storytelling.” You can see that and some more social media fan reactions from the Baby’s show, below.
