Wavves + Best Coast To Play Paradise

On Friday February 4, 2011, California rockers/bf/gf Wavves and Best Coast will be playing a show together at the Paradise Rock Club. There are about 26 other dates and you can check them out here: http://www.spin.com/articles/wavves-and-best-coast-plan-winter-tour. This will be Wavves third outing in the Boston area since June. They headlined Great Scott in June (a good show indeed that Chris & I saw) and then just a couple of weeks ago opened for Phoenix at the Agganis Arena (a very good one according to Matt). Best Coast headlined the Middle East Downstairs with UK punk band Male Bonding in late September.

According to Bethany Cosentino, front-woman in Best Coast: “We’re both in summery California bands and I think by doing the tour in winter, we’re bringing summer to places where it’s fucking freezing.”

Phoenix + Wavves @ Agganis Arena

It’s happening on October 18 at Chris’ favorite last name venue… Agganis Arena! It’s a Monday night and the tickets range from 24 bucks to 38 bucks. Of course, there are fees and things like that added as well. Wavves got added to this shtick a little while ago as opener. They’re playing a little show (at least that’s the way it seems) at Brandeis University on September 18, but this is the real deal. Phoenix, according to a former substitute teacher at WHS, is the best band ever! Well, they are pretty good, I’d say.
