One Night Only

Courtney Barnett: From Where I'm Standing

E Music

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Courtney Barnett: From Where I'm Standing at Dendy Canberra


While Barnett’s hometown of Melbourne was in lockdown for over 100 days, she was forced to swap the tour-bus for an apartment and lay low. Indeed, 2020 was the year that Barnett’s seemingly never-ending global touring schedule ground to a halt. It’s been an opportunity to regroup, think deep and rest. Eventually, it became an opportunity to write and create too. Now re-emerging, Barnett plans to bring together her band (Bones Sloane, Dave Mudie and newest member Lucy Waldron on cello) to one of Australia’s most extraordinary buildings, the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne for a very special, very beautiful, one-night-only live event.

They’ll perform some of her classics and premiere a bunch of brand new compositions. Working with film-maker Derry Sheehan, Barnett and band will perform smack-bang int he middle of the exhibition hall. The grandiose landmark has been an iconic presence in Barnett’s home city for 140 years and is now in the custodianship of Museums Victoria. The builder in 1880 was David Mitchell, father of famed operatic soprano Dame Nellie Melba, Courtney Melba Barnett’s namesake.
