If you’ve ever been in a tumultuous relationship and Taylor Swift just doesn’t cut it when you’re feeling-out your punk rock angst, you are likely already a fan of Best Coast. Lucky for you, the L.A. based band will bring their soulful, relationship-questioning lyrics to The Loft at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 9, as a part of the Shaky Knees late night line-up.
The band’s new album, “California Nights,” is set to release May 4, 2015, so their Shaky Knees performances are sure to be fully cranked with the band launching off the high of a recently released work. Their new music has a “driving through the desert at night with the windows down” kind of vibe that includes the California-lo fi reverberations of guitarist Bob Bruno and badass pop-punk vocals of singer Bethany Cosentino
Why see this band late night on Saturday? Tickets are only $16 so even if you aren’t going to Shaky Knees you have no excuse not to see this great band; it’s an intimate setting and a chance to enjoy the band away from the weather-dodging and crowd-forming madness of a festival; and above all else this is a great band that sounds amazing live. They’ve been around since 2009, and they know what they are doing. In fact, it’s pretty darn tough to find a live recording of this band not sounding amazing. Also, I for one am always pumped to see what Bethany is wearing. She has the whole “I look amazing but also like I didn’t try that hard,” California-free-spirit thing down. This band is just cool. Oh, and check out their Instagram for a surprise appearance by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and forever imagine Elaine from Seinfeld dancing to Best Coast songs.
