Phoebe Bridgers Tour Coming to Stage AE in September With Strict COVID-19 Protocols

I asked my wife and musicophile how she would describe Phoebe Bridgers’ music- idie? Alt? She’s rock and roll, reminding Laura of Chrissie Hynde, Pat Benatar, and Joni Mitchell. That’s the benefit of being a nearly 60 year old fan – perspective.

Phoebe Bridgers brings her tour Pittsburgh in mid-September, stopping at the Stage AE outdoor stage on the 17th. Important to note that she identifies as bisexual b/c visibility matters.

I have mixed feelings about the ‘return’ of live music, due to the pandemic and the notion of returning to the way things used to be. There is no returning- why would we want to? Things weren’t better – our social inequalities didn’t just pop up in the pandemic. There is only forward, better informed.

I could feel okay attending an outdoor concert at Stage AE as of today from a health perspective. I do worry a bit about the behavior of jagoffs who won’t play ball.

So I’m glad to see Bridgers embracing the current situation and reminding us how we can have that experience now, not like 2019.

That is definitely someone who is rock and roll.
