an evening with: Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile

an evening with: Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile 6016 4016 HQ

There​ ​are​ ​many​ ​great​ ​pairs​ ​in​ ​music​ ​—​ ​Lennon​ ​and​ ​McCartney,​ ​The​ ​Black​ ​Keys,​ ​Simon​ ​and Garfunkel,​ ​The​ ​White​ ​Stripes.​ ​

After​ ​seeing​ ​Courtney​ ​Barnett​ ​and​ ​Kurt​ ​Vile​ ​perform​ ​together​ ​live after​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​their​ ​most​ ​recent​ ​album​, Lotta​ ​Sea​ ​Lice, ​it’s​ ​clear​ that ​they​ ​are​ ​on​ ​their​ ​way​ ​to becoming​ ​a​ ​great​ ​musical​ ​duo​ ​themselves.​ ​The​ ​two​ ​bring​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​quirkiness​ ​to​ ​their​ ​music,​ ​as well​ ​as​ ​catchy​ ​guitar​ ​riffs​ ​and​ ​clever​ ​lyrics.

Highlights​ ​of​ ​the​ ​set​ ​included​ ​’Over​ ​Everything,’​ ‘Continental​ ​Breakfast,’​ ​and​ ​’Untogether,’ ​as well​ ​as​ ​some​ ​solo​ ​songs​ ​they​ ​played​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Vile’s​ ​’Life​ ​Like​ ​This’​ ​and​ ​Barnett’s​ ​’Dead​ ​Fox.’

Besides​ ​the​ ​two​ ​touring​ ​as​ ​a​ ​duo​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​time,​ ​the​ ​show​ ​took​ ​place​ ​in​ ​Vile’s​ ​hometown​ ​of Philadelphia,​ ​PA,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​on​ ​Barnett’s​ ​30th​ ​birthday,​ ​making​ ​it​ ​a​ ​special​ ​night​ ​for​ ​not​ ​only​ ​the audience,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​performers​ ​as​ ​well.
