Lucy Dacus was revealed as the surprise guest during Phoebe Bridgers‘ show in Queens, New York yesterday (June 16).

Bridgers previously teased “a very special surprise guest” on the show’s promotional poster, but no other details were provided at the time. Tonight, after opening act MUNA had played, Dacus was revealed as the surprise act, filling the slot before Bridgers’ set.

Dacus performed a short set, including ‘Night Shift’, ‘Hot & Heavy’ and ‘Going Going Gone’, during which she was joined by MUNA, Bridgers and Bridgers’ dog Maxine. She also returned during Bridgers’ performance of ‘I Know The End’, lending her screams to the song’s climactic ending.
