Some lucky boygenius fans who flew into Austin today (March 14th) and happened to stop by the baggage claim area were greeted with a surprise show as part of the official SXSW festivities.
The indie supergroup of Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers played a mid-afternoon acoustic set at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. According to Setlist.fm, they performed songs including “True Blue,” Ketchum, ID,” “Emily I’m Sorry,” and “Not Strong Enough.” Watch fan-captured footage below.
