At one point during their Halloween show last night at the Hollywood Bowl, the indie supergroup known as Boygenius surprised their audience with a guest appearance from none other than Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

Having formed in 2018, Boygenius features indie rockers Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker. The band has released two studio albums at the time of this writing, their most recent being 2023’s The Record.

Like other bands who throw on Halloween shows, Boygenius got dressed up for their concert, the trio dressing as The Holy Trinity. Grohl on the other hand, well, he had a much different vibe going on for his on-stage appearance.

Coming out to play on drums for the band’s song “Satanist” – a track from The Record – Grohl wore all black and corpsepaint.

Grohl’s drumming skills are remarkable, and seeing him and Boygenius rock out on stage together makes for an exhilarating spectacle.

Below you will find two videos featuring Dave Grohl performing with Boygenius. Also below, you will find the Foo Fighters’ upcoming 2024 tour dates.

And speaking of Boygenius, earlier this year, we gave them a shoutout as one of the 10 bands keeping rock and roll alive.
