The Australian newcomer's gig was the most recent in a month-long run of London shows throughout February from different artists. There are still shows from the likes of Drenge and The Orwells still to come.

Interjection from crowd and Courtney was kept to a minimal throughout, but 'DePreston' (which she revealed will be released as a special 7-inch for Record Store Day this year) was an intimate moment with Barnett on guitar, later joined by her drummer.

Barnett - although quite quiet - had fun onstage, taking cues from her bassist and throwing her moppy mane around over the frame of her guitar.
