Courtney Barnett & Friends to play February benefit at Palace Theatre

Courtney Barnett is out on her own to start the year. She embarks on a sold-out intimate solo tour and just added a special date for LA fans.

The prolific Aussie will play a special benefit for Newport Festivals Foundation called Courtney Barnett & Friends on Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14, at the Palace Theatre in downtown LA. It’s part of a continuing series of Newport Folk Revival shows that raise money for music education in underserved communities.

Courtney Barnett has slowly begun to release new tunes here and begins her first solo tour of the U.S. on January 20. She supports Brandi Carlile for two nights at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville before headlining on her own. She sold out a Jan. 31 date at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, and this Palace Theatre gig represents her only LA date.

The Palace Theatre gig will feature an all-star backing band and special guests throughout. She ended last year releasing an MTV Australia Unplugged record that includes a Leonard Cohen cover. She’s one of my favorite artists to see live — I’ve seen her at least 10 times — and can’t wait.

Tickets to see Courtney Barnett & Friends at the Palace Theatre on Friday, February 14 are $42.50 and go on sale Friday, January 17 at 10 AM Pacific Time.
