American indie musician, Phoebe Bridgers performed a “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” for NPR, in front of a green screen of the Oval Office. Watch the video below.
Phoebe Bridgers and her team created a sweet mock-up of the Oval Office with Phoebe performing behind a very special desk. It is a far cry from the lodge mattress in Austin we first filmed Phoebe on back in 2017, however, her ambitions and talent run excessively.
She played the Tiny Desk later that year and returned with newfound bandmates, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker as boygenius, one year later. But there was more to come when she surprised us all for a magical collaboration with her musical hero Conor Oberst as’Better Oblivion Community Center’ just six months later.

Phoebe and band mates Marshall Vore (drummer) and Harrison Whitford (guitarist) performed three songs from her brilliant new album, Punisher. They opened with “Kyoto,” a story song based on her first trip to Japan, followed by a sweet version of “Moon Song” and the sad details of loving someone who doesn’t love themselves and then, the band kicks into her surreal doomsday tune “I Know the End.”
Phoebe introduces herself with the words “I hope everybody’s enjoying their apocalypse.” The trio expands to an ensemble and a crowd-sourced chorus of fans — recorded from bedrooms, cars, backyards and trampolines — let out the kind of cathartic scream that has come to define 2020 for so many of us.
