Watch Courtney Barnett Cover Grateful Dead Classic on 'Fallon'


Less than a week after Courtney Barnett delivered a killer musical guest spot on the season finale of Saturday Night Live, the Melbourne singer-songwriter was back on U.S TV as she and her band visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Friday.

While Barnett's SNL performance spotlighted tracks off her acclaimed 2015 LP Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, she instead ripped through her dexterous, entrancing cover of the Grateful Dead's "New Speedway Boogie," her contribution to the National-curated Day of the Dead tribute compilation, for the Tonight Show audience.
