Courtney Barnett: Electric Ballroom, Camden

Ms Barnett’s style has been described as ‘slacker rock’, but her relaxed style translates well into a confident live performance. Sometimes her songs meander before hooking you in, and sometimes they rock like Nirvana. But, more often than not, she’s witty and amusing, with lyrics that contain smart observations about everyday life. And her neighbours thinking she’s running a meth lab!
