TVD Live Shots: Courtney Barnett at the Riviera Theatre, 10/18

Last Thursday Courtney Barnett cruised through Chicago in support of her latest release, this year’s excellent Tell Me How You Really Feel.

Performing for a sold-out crowd at the Riviera Theatre, she and her band impressed as usual. They can PLAY. And it’s always something to watch Courtney shred the guitar. At one point opener Waxahatchee joined the band to perform a lovely cover of Elyse Weinberg’s “Houses.”

Courtney Barnett’s US leg of her tour continues through October before heading to Europe in November.
