I like The Weeknd and his songs but I didn't think they were presented very well and maybe a little too different from the records. And the sound was bad, too, I thought .
I'll check her out more. Thanks!
It was a Dano Baritone... https://danelectro.com/product/baritone-bass/
She sez it cost $85!
Anyone got a link to that price???
A perfect performance for this era of SNL. Staid, predictable, trying to ape something from 40-50 years ago with zero heart backing it up.
Fake sparks on the monitor when she hit the side and top, good lord.
Well, that sure felt "forced", and kind of ruined what was an enjoyable tune up to that point.
I like Phoebe a lot. I like her writing and her voice and phrasing. I like the sound of her two solo records a lot. She's a musician with a long list of admirable influences. And she's found a unique voice - but isn't letting that keep her from trying new things.
As for this performance: I get it. I liked seeing her smile leading up to the axe-swinging. I think she was having fun. Made my heart happy.
I've long suspected that she might be a girly-girl, a sweet little dainty thing - this proved it for me.
Good for her!
How relevant is this in the age of sustainability? Also, to wreck after two songs... really? That's all it was used for. Seems quite pointless.
How do you know the guitar was only used for two songs? She may have used it a lot prior to the SNL appearance.
But even if that was all she used it for, it's her guitar. If she wants to destroy it, that's her business.
She can absolutely do whatever she wants with it. I wish in no way to limit her freedom in any way. I just personally find it wasteful.
And if she has been using it before and likes it, then I find even less reason to destroy it.
I'm a big Phoebe Bridgers fan, Punisher was one of my favorite albums of 2020 and I loved her work with Boygenius EP. I didn't love her SNL performance, I think SNL is a weird and tough gig -- sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I've never been a huge fan of the guitar smash move -- it was played out even before Kurt Cobain brought it back during the Nirvana heyday.
Here's a much better performance of "I know the End" from the faux live concert at Red Rocks.
She may as well smash guitars...she can't play one.
Meh. I remember seeing Krokus open for Def Leppard, and Krokus' set included a segment where an executioner came out and destroyed a guitar - one they hadn't even played at all.
She seemed a little nervous and detached vocally on some of the first song but what the hell, she's young. I think she's got talent. She feels genuine to me. I think she stands head and shoulders above many of her contemporaries.
Regarding guitar smashing: I'd guess much of Phoebe's audience probably never even heard of guitar bashing. (I was a Who fan before Pete started smashing guitars.) I kind of saw it as a nod to rock legacy and it seemed to fit the feel of the song.
In this case, live and let live.
Maybe the guitar "smashing was lame. But when she got on her knees (and giggled) in front of the lead guitar player - so decadent and edgy! Never seen anything like it!
What bugs me is the astonishing phonyness of the introduction these people get, things like iconic, legendary, superstar, etc. When are these fools going to get off my lawn?
When you stop inviting them on to it?
My wife is Gen X. She gets her music from KCRW and WDVX.
She was disappointed in the performances because she is a big phan of Phoebe.
She thought the guitar smash was embarrassingly out of place.
I am 65. I thought that she and the band were sophomoric at best.
"One time, at bandcamp, I went to see Deerhunter, and yeah, um..."
Joni Mitchell, she's not. She suffers from the same disease as many of today's young actresses. Whisper talk. Couldn't make out many of the lyrics. Be bold! Or go home.
You're welcome to stay on my lawn.
I guess i was kind of impressed that it was an actual band playing guitar based music.
thats all i got.
