Who’s going to see Courtney Barnett live at The Foundry?

…Rebecca Taekema (and her “plus one”)

Congratulations, Rebecca and thanks to everyone who entered!

Here’s how some of you answered our competition question: What book would you recommend to Courtney Barnett to read while on tour?

“Something by Haruki Murakami. Perhaps The Wind-up Bird Chronicle because of the cats. Melancholic yet comforting and uplifting and intriguing, much like Courtney’s music :)”

Sydney Bridge Upside Down by David Ballantyne because it’s not too long, is very NZ, and the writing is amazing and inspiring.”

Owls Do Cry by Janet Frame for all the above reasons and I reckon Courtney would love Janet.”

Cover of Dead People's music“Maybe a novel about another musician like Sarah Laing’s Dead People’s Music or she might be interested in Kevin Hill’s new book

“Kim Gordon’s Girl in A Band and Carrie Brownstein’s Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl :)”

Other suggestions included –

Tickets are still available for Courtney Barnett’s show at The Foundry, Friday 7 November.
