Julien Baker surprised Phoebe Bridgers fans by joining her Boygenius bandmate on stage, where they performed a number of songs together.

‘One Man Guy’ was also recorded for Loudon’s son Rufus for his 2001 album ‘Poses’.

Later on during Bridgers’ set, Baker returned to join her for ‘Punisher’ tracks ‘Graceland Too’ and ‘I Know The End’. Watch those performances below:

Bridgers released ‘Punisher’ in June last year through Dead Oceans. NME gave the album five stars, writing that the artist “branches out from the downbeat alt-folk of her 2018 debut album, exploring millennial dread with a broader sonic palette”.

Baker released her third studio album ‘Little Oblivions’ through Matador earlier this year. NME gave the record a four-star review, describing it as “songwriting with stunning emotional clarity”. The musician followed it up with a remix EP this September, featuring reworks of album tracks by Half Waif, Gordi, Jesu, Thao and Helios, among others.
