Courtney Barnett‘s amazing year continued last night when she won 4 awards at The Age Music Victoria Awards at a ceremony held last night in Melbourne at 170 Russell.

Barnett was nominated twice in the Best Song category for Pedestrian at Best and Depreston (which won), as well as Best Album for Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit and Best Female and Best Band.

The awards are now in their 10th year and featured a ceremony and live performances by an array of local musicians. A larger Hall of Fame ceremony and concert will take place at The Palais Theatre later this month.
