Last week, Courtney Barnett and her live band stormed the area outside Camden Town tube station in north London to do a guerrilla gig and filming. So what was it all for? To produce enough footage for the live promo for ‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’, of course. As you might imagine, with Barnett being such a big indie star now, the noise and hubbub of them setting up grew a big crowd for the actual performance. Watch the raucous impromptu performance below.
‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’ will be released on the 11th of September on House Anxiety / Marathon Artists. For everything Courtney Barnett on TGTF, go here.
