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.
