In case you missed it, Grammy-nominated guitarist Courtney Barnett was the musical guest this week on “Saturday Night Live”, the show’s 41st season finale.

She performed “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party” and “Pedestrian at Best,” off Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit, Barnett’s debut album that helped garner her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. (The album was also Number Six on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 50 Best Albums of 2015). The performances were both boisterous and seriously rocking, in-line with what her fanbase has come to expect. And, after this weekend’s SNL showing, we expect that fanbase to grow much larger.

Check out both performances, plus catch Courtney in our newest episode of String Theory, below.
