GIG – Courtney Barnett at The Joiners – Tuesday 20th May

courtney barnett“Barnett is a storytelling twenty-something singer/songwriter from Melbourne who writes matter-of-fact tales that unspool like barstool revelations and sound like some hybrid of Kimya Dawson and Kurt Cobain.” – Rolling Stone.

Welcome to the world of Courtney Barnett, a hot, hazy place where suburban banalities and mindless procrastination have never sounded so compelling.

The 26-year-old Melbourne-based singer has a nurtured a growing legion of devotees through a series of DIY releases that have been re-released worldwide to snowballing acclaim. Single’s “Avant Gardener” and “History Eraser” are vivid displays of her magic. Hook-laden fugs of country roots and discordant psychedelia with dream-like narratives.

Courtney is nominated for NME’s Best New Band at the 2014 NME Awards while and her sprawling, rocking live shows have seen her sell out tours in the UK, USA and back home in Australia
