Best Coast at Bowery Ballroom (more by Bao Nguyen)
Best Coast

In addition to their date supporting The Decemberists at the now sold-out Prospect Park benefit on June 14th, Best Coast has added a headlining NYC show. The band will team with Those Darlins to play a benefit for Planned Parenthood on June 16th at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale for the show which is a almost two months before Best Coast return to the NYC-area to take part in the first-ever "Escape to New York" fest in the Hamptons.

Other fests Best Coast play this summer include B.O.M.B. Fest in CT, the sold out Bonnaroo (well, some VIP tix are still available), the sold-out Sasquatch Festival, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands.

Those Darlins will also be in NYC in the days surrounding the LPR show. They play a free show at the Big Apple BBQ on June 12 with former tourmates Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, and a Hoboken show at Maxwell's on 6/11 (tickets). Black Joe Lewis play Maxwell's one day later (tickets).

All Best Coast tour dates and a video of Bethany BC announcing the Planned Parenthood show is below.

Planned Parenthood?

Haha! Liberals are so funny.

If I buy tickets to this, are they tax deductible

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 10:47 AM

this decade will be known as the decade of lackluster festival lineups. would it kill someone to come up with a lineup that includes bands NOT playing every single festival?? how about throwing enon, mission of burma, f**k buttons, mudhoney, my bloody valentine, polvo and wire on a bill every now and then?!?!?!

^ How about not?

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 10:52 AM

^ How about Yes. Those are all pretty much great bands, and would love to see them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 11:00 AM

and let's throw Yes on there just for the hell of it

Posted by 10:51 | May 17, 2011 11:04 AM

Ticket prices should be higher if it is a benefit show.

What does this have to do with Tyler the Creator?? If it's not Odd Future related I'm not interested.

@11:00

How about not? Those are all shitty bands and I would HATE to see them.

We can do this all day baby.

How many people do you think Planned Parenthood approached before they went to Bethany trailer?

Those Darlins >>>>>>>>>>>> Best Coast. They should headline

I'm really glad this band is popular. They have a lot of talent. Thanks hipsters! You really add so much to the music world!

could get it

@2:18 If you can stand the smell and are pretty drunk.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 12:26 PM

"and let's throw Yes on there just for the hell of it"

I dig the way you think.

And 11:11, I seriously doubt you could do anything all day. What more are you gonna come up with? "You suck." "No, you suck!" You don't like those bands. I do.

Let's see what happens.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 12:44 PM

Planned Parenthood ... I suppose that's one name for it. Of course, another is Abortion Factory, or Infanticide Incorporated.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 12:49 PM

"Hah, it's on the same day as Earth."

Yeah, I just noticed that. Looks like I'll be hanging around LPR for a while.

I've got Bonnaroo Tix. $500 each. Hit me up.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 12:50 PM

I'll pay $499.50 and not a dime more!

^ LOL, nice comeback! Sorry, but I'm quite pretty.

Next.

I'd hit that.

@2:48 Are you? Why are we fighting then? Let's go out for some hummus together. We'll make fun of bands we don't like together too.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:04 PM

^ Make it a medium rare steak and you gotta deal.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:22 PM

Can I hit that? Cuz I likes me some plump pussay! Hey oh!

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 7:30 PM

@5:22 Medium rare steak? Forget it! You must be a fatty. "Quite pretty" makes no reference to bod. I'm gonna pass porky.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 11:33 PM

^ I'm actually slightly underweight. The ladies like it, so I can't complain. Hell, even Bethany couldn't resist if she laid eyes on me!

It's ok man, I know it must be hard. You were hoping you could use somoeone like her to cover up your thinly veiled homosexuality. All that veg has you feeling like a vag. My condolences.

Hummus is actually a MANLY snack... And the phyto-nutrients give me great stamina to do Rock and Roll dancemoves like the hip thrust.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 12:42 AM

@11:42 Sure. Fatass.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 1:03 AM

^ Seriously? That's it? That's all you have? Just one-word name calling?

At least be somewhat clever (unlike 12:42's failed attempt). It's OK. I know 3rd grade can be tough sometimes.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 9:58 AM

3rd grade wasn't tough.

That's like calling WALMART "THE TRASHCAN HUT".
