Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett wailed on her guitar Friday night, effectively taking over the packed That Tent during the hour-long set.
Fans cheered as Barnett delivered her alternative-psychedelic rock songs intertwined with a ton of guitar solos and jams while still leaving the thread of her poetic lyrics.
The set included audience favorites such as “Need A Little Time,” “Nameless, Faceless,” “Small Poppies,” “Depreston” and “Elevator Operator.” As a bonus, Barnett also performed “Everybody Here Hates You” off her latest album, “Tell Me How You Really Feel.”
Throughout Barnett often matched the crowd’s energy, turning her once slower-paced songs into chaotic rockers worthy of her slamming her whammy bar.
And slam it she did, time and time again, as the crowd chanted her lyrics word for word.
