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.
