Pedestrian at Guess: Is Courtney Barnett playing this spring’s Boston Calling?

 
 

Now that we’re a few days into the New Year, it’s time for New England to start looking ahead to spring’s Boston Calling Music Festival, which goes down on Memorial Day weekend, May 27 to 29, at City Hall Plaza.

Last year, the spring ’15 lineup was unveiled on January 13 — so we’re close to some sort of official announcement.

In the meantime, we may have found a hint from one of the potential performers.

Australian singer-songwriter/guitarist Courtney Barnett just announced her spring touring schedule, and it suggests she might be a part of the Boston Calling lineup. Barnett, who last year released the critically acclaimed LP Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, has a nice big ol’ hole in her itinerary between a May 26 stop in Philadelphia and a May 29 show in Montreal.

Geographically, a Boston Calling appearance would make total sense here… but we’re just guessing. Other festival appearances this year for Barnett include Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 16 and 23) in California and New York’s Governors Ball Music Festival (June 3 to 5). Last year, she performed at Newport Folk Festival.

Check out her current run of dates below, listen to her new track, “Three Packs A Day,” after the jump, and scan through our Barnett photo gallery from her May appearance at the Sinclair.
