Watch Conor Oberst join Phoebe Bridgers for #SaveOurStages set

The Bright Eyes man joined his Better Oblivion Community Center bandmate for two songs during the livestream event

Conor Oberst joined Phoebe Bridgers during her set for #SaveOurStages virtual festival yesterday (October 17).

The musician performed at the event, which benefitted the National Independent Venue Association’s Emergency Relief Fund, alongside the likes of Miley Cyrus and Foo Fighters.

Bridgers and her band played at LA’s The Troubadour, which was empty except for the crew working on the festival. Oberst joined her midway through her set, sporting the same skeleton onesie that she and her band were wearing, for two songs.

“The vision of the label is simple: good songs, regardless of genre,” Bridgers said of her plans for the imprint.

Meanwhile, the musician appeared on YouTuber itsblitzzz’s channel last week (October 16), receiving an ASMR massage from the video-maker.

According to the video’s description, the collaboration came about after Julia learned that Bridgers had cited ASMR – and specifically her channel – as an influence on latest album ‘Punisher’. The pair proceeded to chat online, and Bridgers then went over to her house in California to film the video.
