Austin City Limits hasn’t yet confirmed whether sound was intentionally cut off.

It was Bridgers’ second weekend performing the festival. She played full set, including ‘I Know The End’, the weekend prior.

Earlier this month, Bridgers officially released her cover of ’s ‘That Funny Feeling’, after performing it on her US tour. All proceeds raised from Bandcamp sales of the song will go to various Texas abortion funds.
