Yo Peter Noble!!

I hope you've been paying attention. In my humble opinion, Courtney Barnett is the best new young artist of the past 20 years, from anywhere on the planet. I expect you have booked her. If not, well people, this is what you will be missing:

Seriously, who doesn't love seeing a young gal absolutely shred a guitar. And write and sing a song.

I am dead serious about this young woman. It looks like she's gonna be in the states from at least March to May, but Peter, based on the above concert video, don't you think it would be worth paying to have that show at bluesfest 2015??

And besides, she's a northern suburbs gal and quintessentially Melbourne :d/

Really clever lyricist who, in a few words, conveys reality in bleak city:

"jumped aboard the Epping as the doors are closing on the world" - as a one time traveller of that line I understand exactly what she means.

but it's that damn guitar...borrowed riffs and newly created riffs which would make Keef weep with joy.

Sp Pete...is she gonna be on the bill???

She is one of Australia's biggest success stories from the last few years.
I actually thought she would have played last years festival.
Jimmy Fallon flew her to Amaerica to play on late night.
She is selling out tours overseas, big names are talking her up, and her double EP appeared highly on most end of year album lists.
She is a clever lyricist, making interesting cool music, turning heads in the industry, and she's from Melbourne.
Surely she is going to be anounced..

She's really busy in the US, UK and Europe over the next few months, but will be in Oz in May. I've got a ticket for her sold out Melbourne show. I really hope she is seriously considered for next year.

She has a new album - Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit - (23 March 2015)
I was reading an interview with her in the paper,made me even more keen to catch her live.
