The very exciting Re:SET Festival is traveling the country, and it lands at Merriweather Post Pavilion for three days on Friday, June 16, Saturday, June 17, and Sunday, June 18!
boygenius — the supergroup consisting of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus — headline the first day of the festival! The rest of the Day 1 lineup includes Clairo, Dijon, and Bartees Strange.
You can win a pair of tickets to attend Re:SET Festival Day 1 at Merriweather Post Pavilion with Parklife DC!
Promoted by The Bowery Presents, Re:SET was conceived as an artist and fan-friendly alternative to the standard summer concert experience. Taking place over four weekends in the month of June, each weekend will see three cities in the same region hosting, with each Re:SET headliner playing each city on consecutive days. Fans get a leisurely day that features full sets from every artist, on one stage with no conflicts.
boygenius released their self-titled EP debut in 2018 via Matador Records. (An album of demos followed in 2020.) The trio then released a full-length album, The Record, in March via Interscope.
The new album contains a track called “Leonard Cohen.” Of the song, the band said, “Once, when boygenius was on a road trip in Northern California, Phoebe asked Julien and Lucy to listen to a very important song, and pushed play, and got on the freeway headed in the wrong direction. The song was ‘Trapeze Swinger’ by Iron & Wine — about a dead person telling the living how he wants to be remembered. It was impossible to interrupt this ten-minute-long song. Because of how the exits were spaced, ‘Trapeze Swinger’ added an hour to their travel time. Phoebe felt like an idiot. Lucy turned that drive into the song ‘Leonard Cohen.’”
