Courtney Barnett began her set with "Avant Gardener," a song that introduced many listeners to the Australian artist's breezy yet searing rock.

Barnett barreled through songs from Tell Me How You Really Feel, while throwing in songs from earlier albums. She growled each song's lyrics and roamed around the stage, smiling at band members Bones Sloane and Dave Mudie. Barnett slung her guitar and held the body in the air while ripping through solos. During "Small Poppies," she held her axe like a violin before banging the headstock on the stage, and after "Pedestrian at Best," she walked offstage while squeals of feedback still rang out.
