Courtney Barnett at Riviera Theatre

Apr 28, 2016
Barnett Courtney, indie rock singer

Courtney Barnett’s career has been nothing but on the rise since the release of her debut EP I’ve Got a Friend Called Emily Ferris. Barnett’s quirky lyrics, witty observations, and deadpan style of singing has garnered the attention of critics and fans, both in the states and overseas. It’s part of the reason her 2015 full length debut, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, was one of the most successful albums of the year. It appeared on various end of the year lists and reached number one on three different Billboard charts. Barnett was even nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist. Now, Barnett is bringing her fusion of indie rock/folk and pop out on the road, including a sold out performance at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on April 28th. Alternative rock band Bully will be the supporting act.

Time: 8:00 pm

Tickets: Get’Em

Venue: Riviera Theatre
