Soundcheck Live: Courtney Barnett

Wednesday May 20 2015 • 1:00pm - 1:45pm

Courtney Barnett


Mixing her witty, sometimes heartbreaking observations with devastating self-assessment, the Australian native’s songs are wild and shaggy and wordy. Her sound is rooted in the slack jangle of the late 1980s and the early 1990s, delivering her plainspoken lyrics like she’s making them up on the spot. 

Watch the sold-out show live at 1pm ET: 

Watch her perform “Avant Gardener,” recorded in the Soundcheck studio Feb 2014 

Soundcheck’s Pop-up Sessions offer the chance to see and hear notable artists and bands in an informal setting, playing a short set and talking with Soundcheck host John Schaefer. Perfect for a quick mid-afternoon break, the sessions are only about thirty minutes and are streamed live at
