Best Coast at LPR (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Best Coast

Best Coast have announced a big tour in support of their new LP The Only Place, due on 5/15 via Mexican Summer. Check out the tracklisting/art for The Only Place below.

The tour, part of which is with Jeff The Brotherhood (who recently played Terminal 5), and part of which is with Those Darlins (who recently lost a member), kicks off in LA in May and hits NYC at Terminal 5 on July 17th (with Those Darlins who they also played that Planned Parenthood event with at Le Poisson Rouge). Tickets for the NYC show go on AMEX presale Wednesday (3/7) at noon, and regular sale on Friday.

The NYC stop falls toward the end of fashion mogul Beth Consentino's trek, and is also one of TWO stops they'll make to the NYC area this summer, the first being... supporting Metallica in Atlantic City. All dates are listed below.

Those Darlins dont have a new record but do have a new EP on the way, AND they will join on for a covers LP of the Repo Man soundtrack(!)

If you have ever seen Nikki or Linwood's VHS collections, you know that their copies of Repo Man are well worn. Hell, we are pretty sure that Nikki's not driving might have something to do with Miller's philosophizing.

So, it is very cool that we can now announce that Those Darlins have recorded a cover of the Iggy Pop title track for an upcoming tribute album on American Laundromat Records.

Look for covers by Mike Watt, Matthew Sweet, Black Francis, Weekend and more to round out the rest of the LP, and look for it on 9/8 via American Laundromat.

All tour dates, SXSW included, and the new BC album cover, below...

BC at T5? I'm out.

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 1:42 PM

I predict this album will BOMB. The fad has passed.

The only time I'll ever go to T5 for a show is if there's hot naked chicks and free mac n cheese.

Really? Best Coast isn't one of those bands that should be at a huge venue as it loses intimacy and they won't be able to field that stage presence... Should have done the typical Bowery two-step - Webster and MHOW.

...aaaaaaaaaaand scene.

LOSERS!

The graphic designer for the Best Coast album cover told me that the original version of that album cover was actually going to be a bear hugging a giant pita triangle.

Not too surprised on T5, but I am curious to hear the album. I remember that "Up All Night" tune being pretty tasty.

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 2:29 PM

I think we can all be thankful Wavves will not be on this tour.

I like the album's cover, but I cannot speak for it's content.

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 2:31 PM

i for the life of me can not understand how this girl ever got famous. bland, bland music that you've had enough of after one listen, and then websites assume that you still give a shit.

and she's about as deep as a birdbath.

Well, I know what I won't be doing on July 17th.

Funnest band to hate.

We need more bands that make music about their cats. Like RIGHT NOW.

This chick wishes her cat was her boyfriend.

this seriously needs to be at bowery and MHOW. who thought this a good idea?

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 4:57 PM

why no outdoor show?

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 5:06 PM

awful band

Bowery Presents is the worst - they are sleazy.

Posted by Anonymous | March 6, 2012 8:35 PM

That's rich, considering you ARE Bowery Presents.

5:31, don't forget to spell-check your Godspeed fanzine before you bring it to Kinkos.

awful band

Posted by Souq | March 15, 2012 9:21 AM

God! You people are so nasty. Both these groups are great listens. Yeah, they're no PJ Harvey, but they are doing something very few women musicians are doing these days: rocking the fuck out! I can't wait to take my 9 yo daughter to this show. She's a big fan of both bands.

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.

Posted by miniclip | August 29, 2012 6:34 PM

Sure, miniclip. Will do.
