Courtney Barnett to film new video at secret London gig this evening

Singer-songwriter will play outside Camden Tube station tonight

Courtney Barnett will perform an impromptu gig outside London’s Camden Tube station this evening as she shoots a new music video.

Barnett will perform from 6pm with the footage to be used in a new video for her song ‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party’. The singer-songwriter will also be playing a number of other songs for fans and passers-by.

The guerilla style gig was teased by Barnett on Twitter earlier today:


Barnett released her debut album ‘Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit’ in March. Speaking to NME earlier this year, she explained how the LP reflected the last year of her life.

“The album is a general overview of essentially a year of emotions – 12 months of fucking every day day, up, down, up, down. I dunno what a normal person has, but everyday I had a midlife crisis.”

Barnett and her band play their biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Forum on November 25 with gigs in Wolverhampton, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Bristol also confirmed.

Courtney Barnett will play:

London The Forum (November 25)
Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (27)
Manchester The Ritz (30)
Liverpool O2 Academy (December 1)
Glasgow O2 ABC (2)
Bristol O2 Academy (4)
