Last Thursday, on the eve of the release of her new album Tell Me How You Really Feel, Australian rocker Courtney Barnett played a show at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer in which she presented the entire album in full to kick off the show and even welcomed her friend and Philly native Kurt Vile for a portion of the encore.
After running through all 10 tracks of Tell Me How You Really Feel, from opener “Hopefulessness” through “Sunday Roast,” Barnett and her band moved into some of her earlier favorites like “Avant Gardener” and “Elevator Operator.” For the encore, Barnett brought out Vile for “Over Everything,” the opening track to their recent collaborative album Lotta Sea Lice, and Barnett’s own “Depreston.” The frontwoman then closed out the night with “Pedestrian at Best.”
See the full setlist below, along with fan-shot video of “Over Everything.” Barnett also performed her entire new album during a show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday night, and she plays tonight in Chicago. See her full schedule here.
