We’ve got a tasty co-headlining show for you this Monday in SF at Slim’s. Enter your name below to win a free pair of tickets to this show.

Courtney Barnett has a pretty unique angle on the whole singer/songwriter concept. Deadpan lyrical delivery and post-grunge elements over surf rock sounds smack you on the surface, but it’s the stream-of-conscious-inspired songwriting that bounces around in your brain long after listening.

Take for example “Avant Gardner”, one of the best songs of 2014. Like the exposition of a David Lynch film, everything seems happy and normal, until you strip below the surface.

Barnett reveals her inner monologue with a mix of daily details and deeper thoughts, explicitly copping to feelings of anxiety and maybe even a bit of an existential crisis.

One of my favorite lines of the year will likely be, “The paramedic thinks I’m clever cause I play guitar, I think she’s clever cause she stops people from dying.”

The Australian native has relentlessly toured all over the world this year in support of her breakthrough album The Double Ep: A Sea of Split Peas, including at Outside Lands’ 2014 edition (read our festival review here), making waves wherever she goes.

Sharing the bill with Barnett is San Fermin, Ellis Ludwig-Leone’s emotionally resonant and theatrical project. Their show earlier this year at The Chapel was a wondrous experience, as word of mouth has definitely gotten out on San Fermin. See these guys and gals before they move on to bigger venues.

It may be on a Monday, but this double-banger is our prescribed “Show of the Week.”

Buy tickets if you know you want to go.

  1. You’re so cool! I do not suppose I have read anything
    like this before. So wonderful to find another person with unique thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This
    website is one thing that’s needed on the web, someone with some originality!

  2. If with A-x (with x smaller sized than a King), he’s a
    substantial underdog (about 75-25). You note down the cheat code and test it on your game.
    The action hacking discussion boards become totally
    entertaining if you end up also given treasures.

  3. Thank you, I’ve just been looking for info approximately this subject
