Royal Oak Music Theatre will host singer-songwriters Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile on Monday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. The duo will be joined by an all-star indie band dubbed the Sea Lice, which features members of Sleater-Kinney, Warpaint, The Violators and more.
Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile are out on the road showcasing selections from their collaborative album, Lotta Sea Life, featuring the lead single “Over Everything,” which emerged back on Oct. 13. The inter-continental duo will also perform material from their own catalogs as well as some classic covers.
Barnett released her critically acclaimed debut, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, on Mom + Pop Music in March 2015. Debuting at No. 20 on the Billboard 200, the album gave birth to three singles: “Pedestrian at Best,” “Dead Fox,” and “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party.” The album’s success led to Barnett receiving a nomination for Best New Artist at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
Vile, who is often accompanied by his backing band, The Violators, released his most recent full-length, b’lieve i’m goin down…, on Matador Records in September 2015. The album, which landed at No. 40 on the Billboard 200, was supported by three singles: “Pretty Pimpin,” “Life Like This,” and “I’m an Outlaw.”
Tickets for the all-ages event are available for $36 here at AXS.com. $1 from every ticket purchased will be donated to the ACLU to support their work defending and protecting individual rights and liberties. Royal Oak Music Theatre is located at 318 West 4th Street in Royal Oak, Michigan. For more information, visit Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile’s website and Royal Oak Music Theatre’s website.
