This happened last time and I don't understand the approach. Timothy Chalamet was set to host when Dune came out, then it was delayed for pandemic and he still hosted that night, anyway. Seems like a repeat now with him hosting the weekend after when 2une: I Could Dune This All Day was supposed to come out.

All three members had successful solo careers before forming boygenius.

I know what a supergroup is, thanks. When you set the bar so low the term is meaningless.

The bar isn't set low. It doesn't matter how well known the members of a "supergroup" are; it's just that it's a musical act formed by already-established performers. They can be A-list stars like Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry) or they can be a bunch of indie artists like The Breeders (Tanya Donnelly, Deal sisters) or boygenius up there. The only one I think I've heard of is Phoebe Bridgers, but even though the other two are more obscure, it's still a supergroup.

One thing, though, as per the wikipedia article, it includes bands like Led Zeppelin and Foo Fighters. Generally, when I think of a "supergroup" it's more of a side project or gimmick than an actual "band." Foo Fighters grew out of Nirvana's drummer's solo project, and Led Zeppelin was more of a product of 1960s rock bands shuffling around members like a game of musical chairs.

I didn't use the term, Rolling Stone, Google and Wikipedia did.

At what point is it considered the correct description for this band?

Not sure what boygenius sounds like (too lazy to be arsed to do a youtube search), but I'll give them a listen tonight even though their Dave Grohl has hairier legs than the real Dave Grohl.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'd call Led Zep a "supergroup". John Paul Jones, while a well known session player at the time, was never in a known band, and Plant and Bonham were in Band of Joy together, a barely known band that didn't record anything other than some demos and no record deal. Now, the original planned line up of Page, maybe Jeff Beck, Keith Moon, John Entwistle, and maybe Steve Winwood or Steve Marriott on vocals would have certainly
qualified as a supergroup.

Anyway, looking forward to the show. I've heard of boygenius, but not any of their songs as far as I know, but if they are rock I'll give them a listen.

I'm a big fan. This song, which I am certain they will play tonight, was nominated for Record of the Year, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song Grammys yesterday.

Ok, not a bad song at all. I won't take an automatic bathroom/kitchen break tonight when these ladies are playing.

Sounds like early 90s indie rock -- Julianna Hatfield, Throwing Muses, The Breeders.

Please Don't Destroy the breakout stars of this current cast with their own Apatow produced movie coming to Peacock later this month

They could host a show they are currently a part of to promote the movie.

I did not know two of the guys are the sons of Steve Higgins and Tim Herlihy two former SNL writers.

Wow, boygenius just finished their first song, and (except for the lyric "I don't know why") I couldn't understand anything they were singing. Seriously. Three different singers and the entire song was just a long mumble. They all have lovely singing voices, though.

I thought boygenius was great in both songs. Love them.

OMG the Orphan and the Moon sketch, I was laughing so hard I started wheezing. Who comes up with stuff like that?

Yeah, that's the feel I get as well, not a bad thing. Their performances were pretty good last night, in my opinion much better than the other musical guests they've had recently. The show was the usual to be expected, some funny sketches and some clunkers, not bad over all.
