Courtney Barnett at Metropolis Fremantle

Since the release of her debut full-length "Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit", Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Flipping between the political and personal with face-melting guitars to boot Barnett’s rise to global prominence is unprecedented. From the housing crisis of 'Depreston' to the hell of internet trolls in 'Nameless Faceless', the 30-year-old's everyday narratives have now weaved into collaboration with The Breeders, Kurt Vile and long-term partner Jen Cloher.Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who’s also a Dylan-style word ninja”. She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. Barnett's electric live shows have seen her grace the stages of the biggest festivals of the world, playing to adoring audiences across 5 continents.2017 saw the release of the wonderful album "Lotta Sea Lice" an album of duets with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we awaited the release of “Tell Me How You Really Feel”.“Tell Me How You Really Feel” will be released May 18th through Barnett’s own label Milk! Records followed by a string of worldwide tour dates.One of the most unique Australian voices to emerge this century, see Courtney Barnett tear up the stage with whiplash wit and a full band this August and September.

Flight Facilities

After confirming their now legendary status by instantly selling out a run of dates earlier this year, Australia’s favourite electronic producers Flight Facilities have announced another huge national tour in support of gorgeous new single All Your Love. Still riding high on the back of the success of recent release Need You, the boys will be showing off their much loved back catalogue and a red hot string of new hits at shows all across the country this August and September. Four years on from debut album Down To Earth, Flight Facilities could be forgiven for taking some time off to put their feet up. As far as debuts go, theirs was a bonanza. Spawning two symphony concerts, an ARIA award, a Top 5 chart placing and two of the most recognisable Australian dance works of a generation in Crave You and Clair De Lune, the record was a runaway success for the duo. Not wanting to rest on their laurels and feed the industry beast, the boys decided their next move was to buck the album trend and focus on releasing singles rather than long form projects. The first salvo was last years Arty Boy, a collaboration with Brisbane songstress Emma Louise that showcased a smooth change in direction, tipping it’s hat ever so slightly to Prince while still maintaining a classic Flight Facilities vibe. Next cab off the rank was Stranded, an instant classic collaboration created with an international dream team consisting of Broods, Reggie Watts, Saro and instrumentation by Davide Rossi, Touch Sensitive and Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint. This was followed by the currently rotating Need You and now the brand new All Your Love featuring Dustin Tebbutt - a track that somehow manages to fold everything great about Flight Facilities into 4 and a half minutes of glacially building brilliance.
