On Sunday night, Courtney Barnett was at the Grammys, and she didn’t have a great night. She lost the Best New Artist award she’d been nominated for — and, to add insult to the whole thing, she lost it to the odious Meghan Trainor. And someone caught a screenshot of her and her partner looking nonplussed at Kendrick Lamar’s performance, turning it into a Twitter meme about how Kendrick was scaring white people. Fortunately, she had a better last night. She and her thoroughly badass power trio were the musical guests on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and they thrillingly bashed their way through “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party,” from her great 2015 album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Also, she wore a Midnight Oil shirt, on some real Australian-representing shit, and Colbert looked like he couldn’t have been more happy. Watch it below.
Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit is out now on Mom + Pop.
