Wavves @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
Wavves

Guster, Chief Xcel of Blackalicious, Darker My Love, Natalie Hemby, Crystal Antlers, Bishop Allen, Jenny O, Little Jackie, Ceci Bastida, and "Best Coast, Wavves" have contributed new songs to a Target Christmas album which is currently streaming at Target's site (a download of the songs is "coming soon"). Maybe the two bands will perform the song live when they collaborate on stage during their 2011 tour together. Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino told SPIN:

"We're both in summery California bands and I think by doing the tour in winter, we're bringing summer to places where it's fucking freezing," she says. "We've been talking about what we want the vibe to be -- we want it to be a beach-themed sort of thing, but we're still brainstorming."

Cosentino and Williams haven't planned all details of their sets yet -- Wavves are currently touring in Europe -- but she says fans can definitely expect some on-stage collaborations between the acts. "I'm sure we'll end up doing some songs together," she says. "We were joking that the whole show should be a Wavves-Best Coast jam, but everyone would probably just want a refund if we did that."

Williams also promises there will be a special, limited-edition piece of merch for sale. "I can't say what it is but it's definitely cool," he says. "I think we're also gonna breed cats before the shows and sell them at the merch table."

That tour kicks off on 1/21 on their home coast which is also where it ends on 2/26. Along the way they hit, as previously mentioned, Webster Hall on 2/2. They'll also be at the smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn one day later. Tickets for both NYC shows are now on AmEx presale. Regular sale starts Friday at noon.

No Joy, who you maybe caught during CMJ, opens almost every show on the tour.

Other upcoming shows for Best Coast include two dates with Weezer, and EIGHT shows in FOUR DAYS at the SAME LAS VEGAS HOTEL (the new Cosmopolitan). Not sure what that is all about, but all dates are listed below...

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 12:23 AM

that christmas song is a stinking nugget of SHIT

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 12:40 AM

i didn't think it was possible to have a song worse than the converse song until now

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 12:45 AM

thank god nobody is holding a gun to your head forcing you to listen to this shit.

grow some balls you fucking sheep. if you don't like it, move on and stop being a petty cunt. stop acting so fucking controlled.

Turn the page.........

"Stop acting so fucking controlled."

Presumably you mean the larger system of control: backwards, self-destructive inertia fueled by too much criticism and not enough creativity on the part of the critic.

That said - as we pause on the way to a more enlightened state of being - both Williams and Cosentino are identical imbeciles making endlessly identical songs while they ooze out tons of Taco Bell-induced flopsweat. And if they both suck a wooden cock, we should just stop calling them on their wooden cocksuckiness and listen to something else? Yeah, and some people like eating out of Dumpsters, too. Different strokes.

"endlessly identical songs"

really?

"We've been talking about what we want the vibe to be -- we want it to be a beach-themed sort of thing, but we're still brainstorming."

Brainstorming is hard, guys. Here are some "vibe" ideas though:

-weed (like, a pot jungle or something?)
-cats (cats)
-old Disney cartoons (lawsuits are rad)
-skateboarding (rad)
-sweatshops (Converse, Target, you know)

most epic sellout ever though right? i mean, fucking target, did not see that coming.

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 10:46 AM

it'd be better if it was Walmart, or Archer Daniels Midland Corporation

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 10:58 AM

Those are two of the most inarticulate interviews you can ever view. One can only imagine the depressing, make you want to kill yourself, conversations between the two. And that isn't even getting to the music. Jesus Christ, people. This is what you choose to listen to?

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 11:11 AM

It's not really a sellout if they never had any artistic integrity in the first place, is it? These two 'bands' have always just been cashing in by taking an indie musical trend and making it marketable to a larger audience.

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 1:41 PM

what is really sad is that best coat and wavves can be talked into doing this shit (target)...

who is advising their careers?

are their managers or labels or whoever is handling their day to day REALLY putting them under the impression that whoring out to Target, Converse, and Mountain Dew is going to make their careers?

It is sad because they are just alienating the small fan base that they actually have...... I'm sure it is good for the pockets of whoever is advising them however

I'm glad this is happening.
Maybe this is the moment when everyone at the shows wakes up realizes "What the fuck am I doing here?"

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2010 5:19 PM

"Most epic sellout ever though, right?"

Here's the thing, though: they didn't sell out because both Cosentino and Williams stand for absolutely nothing. You can't sell out if you have no principles to commodify. They're exactly like the happy couple Woody Allen runs into on the street in "Annie Hall"

Alvy Singer: Here, you look like a very happy couple - um, are you?
Female Stranger: Yeah.
Alvy Singer: Yeah? So, so - how do you account for it?
Female Stranger: Uh...I'm very shallow and empty, and I have no ideas and nothing interesting to say.
Male Stranger: And I'm exactly the same way.

Until Target right now? Surprise!

Loved this collection of tunes, especially Wavves/Best Coast song “Got Something For You” and “Toy Jackpot” by Blackalicious, which also had a pretty funny commercial made for it (you can watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DacatsJtDiY)
