"Courtney Barnett's ramshackle gigs are now serious fucking rock shows" - Eve Barlow
"Came to New York just to see Courtney Barnett. Totally worth it" - Steph Mangan
Courtney Barnett was one of the artists to see at last year's CMJ, and it turned out that the hype was real. She's gotten increasingly (and deservingly) more popular since then and returned for just one CMJ show this year, a Webster Hall show on Wednesday (10/22) on her co-headlining tour with San Fermin. Courtney went on first, but it felt like it should have been reversed considering a good portion of the room left before San Fermin's set.
Norwegian artist Mikhael Paskalev opened. More pictures from the show, below...
Courtney Barnett's tour with San Fermin starts this week in Atlanta and just in time for that, she's got a new live video of "History Eraser," one of the standout cuts from last year's The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas, which makes its premiere in this post. Part of Myspace's Wilox Sessions series, the live performance was hot at the downtown LA studio of Australian sculptor Kristian Burford. Courtney and the band sound great as usual and you can watch it below.
The tour will hit NYC during CMJ for a show at Webster Hall on October 22 with Mikhael Paskalev. Tickets are still available and if you have a CMJ badge you can try and get in with that. If you'd like to go for free, we're also giving away a pair of tickets. Details below.
All dates are listed, along with Courtney's Wilcox Sessions video, below...

Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
