Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett has slowed down after a massive couple of years touring behind her breakthrough debut, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, making Mexico City one of the last times to check her out before she returns with a new album. But what’s really remarkable about Barnett is how fresh her live show remains. Visuals for her sets are consistently refined and honed, while Barnett is always seeming more comfortable in her role as a rock star. She’s now commanding set times after dark, but even at her hardest hitting tunes “Pedestrian at Best” or “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party”, her smile doesn’t need the daylight to shine brightly. The looks she shares with her band as they jam out the songs are that of a trio that’s still having fun with this set, and at a festival so steeped in rock music, it went over perfectly.
