Boston Calling | Artists to Watch: Courtney Barnett

Acentric Magazine is counting down to the Boston Calling Music Festival by highlighting some of our favorite artists to watch.

Artist: Courtney Barnett
Genre: Alt Rock, Grunge
For fans of: Sleater-Kinney
We all probably saw Courtney Barnett absolutely slay on the season finale of SNL last weekend. Wasn’t it fantastic? YES. IT WAS. To be honest, I am a little late to the party since that was my first encounter of Courtney. This Australian rocker gained some attention for her debut EP I’ve Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris in 2011, and then then some international attention following the release of her double EP A Sea Split Peas in 2013. She has the best 70’s attire I have ever seen, she’s clever, witty, and she would probably sit down and make friendship bracelets with you if you asked. I am making her my number one priority for Boston Calling and you should, too. If you haven’t been enlightened yet, check out her track “Pedestrian At Best.”
