Highly Anticipated Outside Lands Artist Phoebe Bridgers Plays a Free Secret Show in the Bay Area Ahead of the Festival

One of Outside Lands’ most anticipated acts stopped by Healdsburg for a secret, free show ahead of their appearance at the San Francisco festival on Friday night.

The nonchalant-looking skeleton that appeared on an Instagram post announcing the event may have been a dead giveaway. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday night, a line of stunned fans wrapped around the block of newly opened vegan restaurant and bar Little Saint to see “super secret special guest,” the award-nominated singer-songwriter Grammy Awards Phoebe Bridgers.

“You don’t want to miss this,” the post read.

Little Saint co-owner Laurie Ubben told the Press Democrat, which was first to report the news, that she met Bridgers at several music festivals and convinced her to stop by for the relatively impromptu gig. .

“We really wanted to bring people here,” Jenny Hess, Little Saint’s manager, told the Press Democrat, noting that Bridgers, a Pasadena native, lived in Ukiah for several years and often visited Healdsburg. to be a place of music and a destination.

It didn’t take long for the concert, which required advance reservations on a first-come, first-served basis, to sell out. A video shared to Little Saint’s Instagram Story showed Bridgers accompanied by bandmate Harrison Whitford as she played an acoustic rendition of “I Know the End” from her 2020 album “Punisher,” as well as the second track from the album. “Garden Song” album. A lava lamp and glow-in-the-dark skeleton poster provided a backdrop for the musicians as they sat on a couch with a herringbone knit blanket thrown over it for the duration of the cozy and intimate set that lasted a little over an hour.

Phoebe Bridgers will perform on the Twin Peaks stage at Outside Lands from 8:35-9:50 p.m. on August 5.
