Last weekend, Courtney Barnett wowed the massive Glastonbury crowd with her Pyramid Stage performance.
In contrast, today we're very excited to premiere this somewhat more intimate hometown performance, which was captured by our friends at Moshcam back in May.
It's been a big year for the Australian songsmith, and her sold out hometown show at Melbourne’s beautiful Forum Theatre was more than a homecoming. It was a consolidation of a few years of being on the cusp of success which seems to have finally come. With her eloquent tumble of words about nearby streets and local characters, the magic of this performance is that it's more than some gig in a place where she grew up.
Without further ado, grab a cold tinny from the fridge, pop your feet up, and enjoy the show...
