Courtney Barnett @ The Portland Arms

  • May 12, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a rare treat: a successful Australian singer-songwriter playing a small Cambridge gig. I wanted to see her in London last month, but it sold out before I had a chance. This one's likely to do so too!

Tickets here: and lots of music here:

"Courtney Barnett is a Melbourne-based guitar player & singer & songwriter. In 2012 she started her own label, Milk! Records, and released her first EP I’ve Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris to glowing reviews around Australia. That quickly snowballed into International critical acclaim in 2013 with her second EP How To Carve A Carrot Into A Rose."

“Barnett’s music builds on the wordy irreverence of mid-’60s Bob Dylan and a Byrds-ian blend of psychedelia, folk and country” – Mike Powell, Pitchfork

“Tales that unspool like barstool revelations and sound like some hybrid of Kimya Dawson and Kurt Cobain” - Rolling Stone

“Shows off a mind that’s racing at a hundred miles an hour” - NME

“This track is a perfect summary of the earnest freewheelin’ and rambling wit that makes music from this end of the world just so great” – The Guardian UK
