PREVIEW: Best Coast at First Avenue 6/8/2015


Filed under “I’m surprised that show has not sold out yet” Best Coast’s tour in support of their new album “California Nights” will stop in Minneapolis on Monday 6/8. Comprised of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, the Californian duo’s record is shaping up nicely to become 2015’s unofficial summer jam (according to People Magazine, Noisey, Entertainment Weekly, MTV and Consequence of Sound).

Best Coast - Janell Shirtcliff - General 3 - HIGH RES

The band’s sound show’s Consentino’s love of surf rock and girl groups. “California Nights” raises Best Coast to the next level and manages to transport us to said coast (and no, we are not talking Jersey here, Vinny!). The album is a brighter, more sparkly, more sophisticated, more psychedelic Best Coast album across the board, embodying the rich lightness and stinging darkness of a California state of mind.Their single with the same title has been getting quite a bit of airplay on alternative stations.
