Melbourne's finest beats lockdown with a streamed concert

Australian singer/ songwriter Courtney Barnett has announced a global livestream.

She'll be performing from Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building, on Thursday 17 December 2020. Says Courtney: "Me 'n' my band (Dave Mudie, Bones Sloane, Lucy Waldron) will be playing some old songs and some brand new ones 'n' we can't for you to hear them."

Built to host the Melbourne International Exhibition in the late 19th century, the Victoria venue is a World Heritage site - the first building in Australia to receive the status.

Discussing the venue, Courtney adds: "I'd like to acknowledge that this performance takes place on stolen land. The Traditional Owners of this land are the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation and I pay respect to their Elders past and present."

Emerging from Melbourne's vibrant music scene in the 2010's Courtney Barnett gained an international following with 2013's The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas and 2015's debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.

She's since toured worldwide and recorded an album with US singer/ songwriter Kurt Vile (Lotta Sea Lice).

Looking ahead to a post-pandemic world, when touring is again possible, Courtney concludes: "We can't wait to play shows for you in real life again and hope to see you soon."

Courtney Barnett: From Where I'm Standing - Live From The Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, can be watched online on Thursday 17 December 2020.
