Club EVOL brings Australia’s brightest emerging talent to Liverpool, Getintothis Peter Guy looks ahead to something special.
Courtney Barnett will play the O2 Academy in Liverpool on Tuesday December 1.
The 25-year-old Australian released Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, one of the stand out records of 2015 earlier this month and returns to Liverpool for the first time since playing a riotous show at The Zanzibar during Sound City 2014.
Mixing witty, meandering lyrical humour, and sometimes heartbreaking observations with devastating self-assessment, Barnett’s debut has cemented her as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in rock and roll.
Getintothis caught Barnett last month at SXSW in Austin Texas where she played a set packed with new tunes and choice cuts, including breakthrough track Avant Gardner from her debut collection of EPs A Sea of Split Peas.
This time round she plays for Club EVOL in what promises to be one of the hottest shows in town when tickets (priced £15) go on sale on Friday at 9am.
