Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile have announced a new album and a tour which comes to Portland’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall October 20th. Vile is the former lead guitarist for The War on Drugs, who released his most recent solo album in 2015. Barnett, a Melbourne Australia native, was one of the biggest new acts in indie rock the same year, with her droll and brash debut, “Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit”. The two have been a recording an album together, which has yet to be announced.
The fall tour features a backing band called The Sea Lice, including Portland’s Janet Weiss on drums.
