Courtney Barnett returns this Friday with her highly anticipated new album Tell Me How You Really Feel which will be released via Mom + Pop Music. She’ll celebrate the release with us here in New York this weekend with an intimate performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday that is very much sold out.

The show will also feature an opening performance from Palehound, which sets this up to be one hell of a 1-2 punch. As I said tickets are sold out, but keep an eye on the ticket page for any last minute drops, or potentially some tickets that may be available at the door (though, not likely). This is not a show to be missed, that much is for sure.

Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile at Loew’s Jersey Theatre (November 6, 2017)

By Will Oliver, December 14th 2017 — with 1 comment

One of the best surprises of the year was the announcement that Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile had teamed up to release their album Lotta Sea Lice (via Matador Records) and would go on tour in support of it. The album is a perfect showcase of both artists talents, both a fun excursion and a worthwhile new branch of songwriting for both of them.

Following a performance at the Beacon Theatre in New York a few days prior, the pair brought the tour to Jersey City, New Jersey for a performance at Loews Jersey Theatre. The night featured a great opening performance from Australian singer-songwriter Jen Cloher (who is also Barnett’s partner), whose new self-titled album is one of the year’s best.

Courtney Barnett at Rough Trade NYC (June 5, 2016)

By Will Oliver, September 15th 2016


It was a great disappointment to find out that day 3 of Governors Ball was rained out this year, considering how great the lineup was that day. We were ready to catch sets from the likes of Kanye West, Prophets Of Rage, Eagles Of Death Metal, Whitney, FIDLAR, Bat For Lashes, Day Wave, Death Cab For Cutie, Two Door Cinema Club, and Chvrches, just to name a few. A few artists stuck around to try and make it up to fans, if they were able to find a venue that was able to put on a show under such short notice.

1_Courtney Barnett_Baby's All Right

Just one day after opening for Blur at the world’s most famous arena, Courtney Barnett played a show of her own, at the slightly more intimate Baby’s All Right. The show was a special exclusive for members of the monthly subscription service Jukely, and one of the last chances we will have in some time of catching Barnett live, at least in a room this tiny ever again.

She sounded great as usual, ripping into songs off her breakthrough 2015 release Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit (one of the year’s best) delighting the lucky crowd with the same amount of passion and energy as always. The show also featured an opening set from the seductive charm of Widowspeak.

Courtney Barnett at Newport Folk Festival 2015

By Will Oliver, October 13th 2015 — with 1 comment

1_Courtney Barnett_Newport Folk Festival 2015

The year of Courtney Barnett continued well into the summer, with a slot at Newport Folk Festival in the late days of July. Although I’ve probably seen her play one too many times in the past year, her set was one of my most anticipated of the entire weekend.

She played one of the festivals mid-sized tents, but it was clear that she was really meant to take hold of the main stage (next year?). As she’s done time and time again, her and her band delivered a dominant performance that served as a clear reminder why everyone is falling head over heals for Barnett and her incredible debut album.

She’ll be returning to New York soon for a big time opening slot for Blur at Madison Square Garden. Maybe she’ll add a last minute solo performance of her own, so keep an eye out.

For now, enjoy some shots of her Newport Folk Festival performance, which are all posted below.

Courtney Barnett at Terminal 5 (July 22, 2015)

By Anthony Bauer, September 21st 2015


Words and photos by Anthony Bauer

July 22nd marked the return of Courtney Barnett back to New York City, just a few short months after her completely sold out three night run at the Bowery Ballrom this past May. It was her biggest New York gig to date (that is, until she opens for Blur at the slightly larger MSG later this year). Along for the ride and kicking things off were Torres and Speedy Ortiz, which truly made this show a an absolute triple threat from start to finish.

To say there wasn’t any anticipation leading into the show would be a complete lie, as this show was on everybody’s radar for months now. Opening and and setting the tone for the night was New York’s own Torres, who is hot on the heels of her latest release Sprinter, that came out this past May. I had no doubts that her sound would fill out T5, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well it did. Although Torres’ set seemed to be on the shorter side, we’re excited knowing that she’ll be back playing in the New York City this fall as an opener at The Kings Theater in October.

Courtney Barnett and Chastity Belt at Bowery Ballroom (May 19, 2015)

1_Courtney Barnett_Bowery Ballroom

Last Tuesday night, I caught the first of Courtney Barnett’s completely sold out three-night run at Bowery Ballroom. Her first proper album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit (out via Mom + Pop Music) is one of the year’s best records. I don’t know if there’s any artist hotter than Barnett at the moment, and mind you, it’s not the type of buzz that comes and goes like a passing phase. This is the sustainable, real deal sort of excitement that has pegged Barnett as one of the brightest voices in music. It’s scary to think that she’s only getting started.

Courtney Barnett at Firefly Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 3rd 2014 — with 1 comment


My first ever Firefly Festival was kicked off with a set by Australian Courtney Barnett. Her 2013 album The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas somehow slipped past me last year, but after her performance at the fest, I’m fully caught up.

Based on the reception that the crowd gave her and her band (especially on night 1), she is well on her way up. There’s an easy going nature to Barnett’s music that she conveys delightfully live. It was no surprise that her biggest song “Avant Gardener” was a clear highlight, with all of its clever lines delivered to perfection.

From what I saw, it’s only a matter of time until Barnett’s career takes off in a big, big way. Read the rest of this entry »
