KXT 91.7 Presents Courtney Barnett

The Bomb Factory

Since the release of her debut full-length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Flipping between the political and personal with face-melting guitars to boot Barnett’s rise to global prominence is unprecedented. 

From the housing crisis of "Depreston" to the hell of internet trolls in "Nameless Faceless", the 30-year-old's everyday narratives have now weaved into collaboration with The Breeders, Kurt Vile and long-term partner Jen Cloher. Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who’s also a Dylan-style word ninja”. She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. Barnett's electric live shows have seen her grace the stages of the biggest festivals of the world, playing to adoring audiences across 5 continents. 

In 2017, Barnett parntered with Kurt Vile for Lotta Sea Lice, a gorgeous place-holder while we awaited the release of Tell Me How You Really Feel from one of the most unique Australian voices to emerge this century. Tell Me How You Really Feel was released on May 18 through Mom+Pop, Marathon Artists and Barnett’s own label Milk! Records.

Tickets on sale Friday, November 9 at 10am. Doors open at 7pm. Show starts at 8pm.
