San Fermin and Courtney Barnett with Mikhael Paskalev //
Slim’s — San Francisco
Monday, November 3rd //

We’ve got a tasty co-headlining show for you this coming 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 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 the globe this year in support of her breakthrough album The Double Ep: A Sea of Split Peas, including at Outside Lands 2014, 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 in San Francisco at The Chapel was a wondrous experience, and word of mouth is 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.

    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.
