Courtney Barnett, Varsity Recommended 18+ Early Warnings (Music) Sold Out (Music)

When: Wed., July 30, 9 p.m. 2014

Twenty-five-year-old Melbourne singer Courtney Barnett unfurls the lines to her wordy songs with an apathy that belies their sharpness. She propels last year’s impressive The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas (Marathon Artists) with her scrappy, post-Velvet Underground guitar, which alternates between rudimentary rock ’n’ roll riffs (such as the Chicago blues lick in “David”) and hypnotic swirling (“Porcelain”). —Peter Margasak, 2014
