Posting that picture with that caption is a very funny and not so subtle rag on the Wavves guy, who totally deserves it.

justin is such a babe. smear some hummus on his fine self, oh yeah girlfriend!

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 1:23 AM

I would honestly rather go see bieber than wavves and best coast.

The music would still suck, but at least the crowd would be bearable.

Posted by Kyle | February 2, 2011 1:27 AM

both shows would be just as good picking up underage girls

OMG!! It's Justin Bieber!! My gianee is just tingling with excitement! To think people complain about metal. Immortal & Agalloch are coming! NY is gonna burn. \m/

What I need you people to know is that Marnie Stern should have been in this picture.

Posted by OMG | February 2, 2011 5:15 AM

where does Bethany do her nails, at bimbospa?
the title above the pic makes it hillarious!
whom ever sleeps with nathan boy is not a celeb but a miserable person...

bieber is more punk rock than wavves

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 8:34 AM

Ive noticed there are more assholes than opinions on this site. Something is not matching up.

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 8:36 AM

I agree with Kyle at 1:27. I would rather see JB in concert than have to wade through a minefield of hummus and pbr farts.

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 8:40 AM

Wavves suck, mainly because auto correct won't let me spell their band name.

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 8:42 AM

impressive performance? LOL

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 8:50 AM

If you are a 'cool' teenager it's ok to like Wavves and Best Coast.

If you are in your 30's and think you have your finger on the pulse of what's happening....it's definitely NOT ok!! You SUCK!

do yall think bc+wavves will tounge each other on stage

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 9:55 AM

9:55, for sure.

Anyone else think it's odd that this Wavves/Best Coast tour can sell out TWO shows in the NYC-area yet can't fill up a 500-person room in Philly?

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 9:57 AM

I like her new do, Bethany's hair is pretty good too.

Canadian tuxedo?

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 10:07 AM

9:57 - Not odd at all. NY'ers will attach themselves to any and every "hot" new band. People in Philly have more sense.

Ps- just wait until next year when BC and Wavves have faded away and nobody will admit to liking them or ever having seen them....let alone paying loads on Craigslist to get in the door....ouch!

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 10:09 AM

Nathan and Bethany will have to open up a hummus shop in order to get by once their musical careers fail

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 10:15 AM

You're an idiot 9:57pm.

Starlight Ballroom in Philly has a capacity of at least 1000. And the show was sold out.

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 10:22 AM

yeah, 9:57, you are such an idiot because you attacked my two favorite bands. what kind of idiot does that? idiot. that was so idiotic of you.

^^ i love when best coast anonymously comments on brooklynvegan

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 10:31 AM

9:57 and 10:09: i believe that it is because nyc had close to 9 million people and philly has 1.5 million. odds are there will be a few more fans of bad music in a town with 6 times as many people.

Posted by jonathan | February 2, 2011 10:41 AM

10:31: Hahaha. Yeah, becaues it obviously HAS to be a member of the band commenting on this very site.

Best Coast probably has better things to do right now, like jack off or something.

10:09, 10:22, 10:31,

Fair enough. But it's also interesting that the Fleet Foxes are playing United Palace here (3100 capacity) yet the Starlight in Philly. Just sayin...

pitchfork just announced that 2 out of 3 of the members of best coast are fat. oh wait.. breaking news update. the other one is kind of a heffer too.

Pitchfork just announced the Best Coast drummer just ate Mumford and Sons and since she was in NYC, she went out and found her old bandmates in Vivian Girls and ate them as dessert. Nathan Williams had a meltdown when he saw what had happened.

I was going to go see Best Coast and Wavves tonight but then I decided to fly to Egypt and get pummeled in the head with rocks. Its probably a similar feeling.

I autotuned a fart and sent it through a Roland Echo box. Where's my Letterman gig?

Best Coast and Wavves are the most talented bands of our generation. Their live show is even better then Ariel Pink!

BEST COAST AND WAVVES ARE SELLOUTS____ NOTHING COOL HAPPENING HERE W THEM

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2011 5:12 PM

Best Coast and Wavves probably appreciate the acknowledgement you're giving them, even if it is negative (coming from a fan of neither).
