On Wednesday night (March 16), Bridgers’ label Saddest Factory Records hosted a showcase at the Austin festival, which they called the ‘Saddest Factory Records Corporate Retreat’.

The showcase included Charlie Hickey, Sloppy Jane, Claud, and MUNA, with Bridgers acting as MC and joining artists on stage throughout the night.

At the end of the event, there was a ‘TEAM BUILDING: Karaoke’ session, which is when Bridgers joined the members of Sloppy Jane to lead a singalong of My Chemical Romance’s 2006 single.
