Courtney Barnett Delivers Breezy ‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’ on ‘Colbert’
Courtney Barnett was the musical guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (Feb. 17), where she played a cut from her critically acclaimed debut effort Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.
The Australian garage-rocker perfectly captures the zeitgeist during her performance of “Nobody Really Cares If You Don't Go the Party.” She speaks for just about everyone present when she sings of weekend social anxieties in her now-signature drawl, “I wanna go out, but I wanna stay home,” amid squealing guitar. If you missed yesterday's episode, you can catch Barnett's bit in the video at the top of the page.
Sometimes I Sit and Think arrived just about a year ago via Mom + Pop/Milk! It earned Barnett a nomination for Best New Artist at Monday's Grammys, but the award ultimately went to Meghan Trainor.
Barnett's tour will bring her back to the states this spring and summer. Along the way, she'll play Nelsonville Music Festival in Ohio; Mountain Jam in Hunter Mountain, N.Y.; Governors Ball in New York City; and Coachella in Indio, Calif.
