The exciting news has reached the fans of both Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile. Not only are the two going on a North American tour together, they recorded a new album as well. Their band ‘The Sea Lice’ will be joining them on stage, consisting of musicians Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag, Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint, Rob Laakso from The Violators, The Swirlies and Mice Parade and Katie Harkin from Harkin, Sky Larkin and she was also a touring member for Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts. Since the pair partnered with Plus 1, one dollar from every ticket will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, a non-profit organization that helps defends individual rights and liberties for every person.
Barnett had been an opening act for Kurt in 2014, which led to them running into each other from time to time. Now, they have finally decided to work together for their upcoming tour and their album that will be out later this year. The duo will be performing songs from their upcoming album as well as hits from both of their careers. This should be a very special night for fans.
See Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile at ACL Live at the Moody Theater on November 11th.
