Only reaching #31 on the ILM end of year albums poll must have been too much for them.

Not strong enough to be a band

I felt like that was kinda built into their thing. They were always going to go back to solo careers and/or other collaborations.

(which the article also says, if I'd actually read to the end)

Every band is on hiatus when they are not touring or recording.

Yeah, in all honesty they probably didn't need to make an announcement. I pretty much figured once the tour was over, their next projects would be their own individual albums.

(Actually I should reel that back in - saying that at a private show is not exactly an announcement to the press.)

really like their new Gretsch signature guitar, based on the Broadcaster but without a Bigsby and has a trapeze bridge instead

My favorite of their three lovable Grammy speeches last night. (This was the third one, so they'd already got most of the thank-yous out of the way.)

did they play "Layla" every time someone went to the stage?!

or just boygenius!?

I think the cues were pegged to the categories (so, "Rock Song" gets "Layla") — but I didn't pay enough attention to say for sure.

Wish at least one of those had been televised. (Or, I mean, part of the main broadcast. I guess those pre-show awards were streamed somewhere?)

It made me think of Bridgers' great Clapton diss, tho.

It's pretty awesome to see how massive they've become and how I'm sure whatever they do next they'll individually be stars in their own right even more.

gotta believe PB will move up to arenas now and Dacus / Baker to, like, 5000+ theaters and amphitheaters, right?

Makes me glad to have seen Baker and Dacus in smallish venues pre-boygenius. Not yet had the chance to see Bridgers.

one month passes...

Neat tribute in today's Double Jeopardy round.
