Julien Baker brought her tour with Phoebe Bridgers to NYC for a show last night (4/27) at Bowery Ballroom with additional support from Scranton, PA's Petal. It was sold out in advance and PACKED, with people already filling the venue before Petal's opening set. It's crazy that less than a year ago Julien was opening a three-band bill at that same venue and now she's back headlining, selling it out, and still playing (almost entirely) solo. The only people on stage besides Julien were Phoebe Bridgers to sing with her on one song, and very excitingly, Sharon Van Etten (!) to sing with her on "Good News" during the encore. A video clip of Sharon joining her is below.
Julien said on stage that she'd been wanting to play with Petal for a while, which was definitely a great pairing. Petal will be back in NYC on tour with Pity Sex and PWR BTTM.
