Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile at The Immanuel Presbyterian Church

words + photos by Joe Cortez

The hallowed halls of Los Angeles' Immanuel Presbyterian Church played host to the musical meeting of the minds that was Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile this past Saturday night, October 14. Maybe it was the site of the show or perhaps something greater but there was a marked reverence throughout Barnett and Vile's performance. Performing both solo tracks from each of their careers as well as cuts of the duo's recently released LP, "Lotta Sea Lice," (available now via Matador Records) the beloved indie rockers regaled the assembled with their introspective musical banter.
