The alliance of Banished Music and Strange News are a force to behold in 2022, launching their mega-stacked Strange Universe extravaganza last week and announcing today two must-attend Aotearoa headline events starring Lucy Dacus. One third of boygenius with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, the US songwriting sensation released her coming of age opus Home Video (featuring contributions from her boygenius bandmates) to significant global acclaim in mid-2021, followed by new power-pop ode to smooching 'Kissing Lessons' in February. Last here before the pandemic in 2019 and recently praised by Rolling Stone as “one of the best songwriters of her generation,” a local appearance from Dacus is long overdue — catch her with band in Tāmaki Makaurau and for the first time ever in Te Whanganui-a-Tara this June...

Last here in 2019 for a scorching show at Auckland’s Tuning Fork, Lucy Dacus returns to grace the stages of West Auckland’s iconic live music destination the Hollywood Avondale, while Wellington will finally get their Lucy moment at Meow.

Fans can expect to catch Dacus playing songs from her celebrated album Home Video (out now on Matador / Remote Control), which was featured in countless ‘best albums of 2021’ lists. The New York Times said “Lucy Dacus’s wrenching third studio album [Home Video] is as much an achievement of memoir as it is of songwriting”, while The Guardian called it “some of the year’s best musical storytelling .. her writing newly amplified by subtle hints of pop propulsion and grit that evoked how Elliott Smith expanded his sound” and Time Magazine enthused “the best lyrics aren’t just beautifully poetic or descriptive, but also conjure a whole unive
