Live Through This: NOT rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of March 16th, 2020
Oh, what might have been. I wrote this before everything turned to muck and mire and Best Coast (and everybody else) postponed… Is there nowhere to see live music…????
If there is a better SoCal pop rock band than Best Coast, who would that be exactly? Dawes? Haim? There isn’t one, and over a decade and four great (and one kids) albums, Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno have written and produced some of the strongest and saddest summer in the winter songs ever. That would include their latest, the phenomenal Always Tomorrow, and early contender for album of the year. The one time I saw em live was in 2013 and they blew me away and so much so that, despite the major pain in the neck of getting to Brooklyn Steel, especially on a weeknight,I’ll be at Brooklyn Steel on Wednesday for the pure joy of summer days and summer nights.
