Trending Now

Courtney Barnett took part in a special performance celebrating the 40th anniversary of Patti Smith’s Horses album in Melbourne, Australia.

The performance took place at Melbourne’s Town Hall at the end of October.

Barnett was joined by Jen Cloher, Magic Dirt’s Adalita and The Drones’ Gareth Liddiard for the one-off show.


Now, Barnett’s own label Milk! Records have released footage from the evening, including a full performance of Barnett playing “Redondo Beach“.

“It’s a really challenging album,” Barnett told Uncut. “But you’ve got to challenge yourself in life or you don’t get anywhere. I try to constantly push myself a little outside my comfort zone, or I’d just stay in my room and be depressed. So I have to keep trying to grow as a person.”
