Fresh off an appearance with Foo Fighters on Saturday Night Live, Dave Grohl spent part of his Halloween on stage with Boygenius, who will ironically be the musical guest on the sketch comedy show’s next episode on Nov. 11. Wearing all black and face paint, Grohl hopped on drums for “Satanist.” Group members Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker were in the Halloween spirit as well, dressing as The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost for their set.
In another fun twist, Boygenius performed a solo song from each member with a different member tackling lead vocals: Dacus and Bridgers sang Baker’s “Good News,” Bridgers sang Dacus’ “Night Shift,” and Baker and Dacus tackled Bridgers’ “Motion Sickness.” It was the final show on the trio’s 2023 docket.
Boygenius just released a new four-song EP titled The Rest. The songs were produced by the band along with Tony Berg, Jake Finch, Ethan Gruska, Calvin Lauber, Collin Pastore, and Marshall Vore. In March, the band released its debut album, The Record, our review of which you can read here.
In 2021, Grohl defended Bridgers after she was criticized by some older musicians for smashing her guitar during her first Saturday Night Live appearance. The Foo Fighters frontman told Howard Stern that he discussed the performance with his late mother.
