Billie Eilish Performs Intimate Set At Amoeba Music: Look + Listen

Celebrating the one-year anniversary of her sophomore album Happier Than Ever, on Friday (7.29), Billie Eilish gave a surprise performance at Amoeba Music in Hollywood.

Accompanied by her brother and and fellow songwriting/artist partner Finneas on guitar, Eilish sang “Billie Bossa Nova,” “Getting Older,” “TV” and “Happier Than Ever” during her midday set.

“This is so cute,” Eilish told the crowd between songs. “You guys are just the best, and it’s been the most amazing year. You guys have been so sweet and respectful about this album and I just love you.” The singer also took requests from the audience, but shot down fans who asked her to perform some of her more emotionally fraught songs. “I’m hearing ‘Everybody Dies,’ but it’s such a downer.”

Featuring new tracks “TV” and “The 30th,” earlier this month, Eilish dropped her Guitar Songs mini EP, and In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the 20-year-old superstar discussed her songwriting process and confirmed that the overturning of Roe v. Wade in “TV” was included in the composition long before the landmark decision was confirmed. “We wrote that line a few weeks before it was officially overturned. It was a placeholder of doom,” she said.

Long known for her political activism, Eilish recently partnered with the non-profit voter registration organization HeadCount in an effort to encourage more Gen Z voters to head to the polls, stating. “With what is going on in our country, we need to get out to the polls and vote for what we believe in.” “Not showing up is not an option.”
