Courtney Barnett - The Truman, Kansas City

Sometime in the last five years, Melbourne’s Courtney Barnett became a certified rock star. Touring behind her sophomore album Tell Me How You Really Feel, Barnett and her band swung by Kansas City’s The Truman, on their way to the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend in Chicago. The last time Barnett visited the area was in 2015, supporting her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, and opening for Belle & Sebastian at the Uptown Theater. Despite that brief set, Kansas City has embraced Barnett’s punk-meets-alt rock style.

Beck - Madison Square Garden, New York

When Beck (finally) released Colors last year…I didn’t hate it, I hated what it represented…or might have represented; I had some pretty weird thoughts in my review…but one thing was undeniable: it was colorful. And not the standard spectrum of colors we’re used to seeing as humans, this motherfucker INVENTED colors for this album. Then he called down lightning from some other planet’s sky to supercharge the damn thing before unleashing it upon the masses.
