My ears have been lusting after Best Coast all summer and I finally got to see them when they rolled through Toronto last weekend. The sold out show at Lee's Palace turned out to be really! fucking! amazing! despite singer Bethany suffering from what appeared to be the flu.
Already a road veteran at the tender age of 23, she powered through almost puking several times on stage stopping only to sip water and smoke a joint that a bold (and clearly awesome) audience member passed to her in between songs. Bethany even announced that it was the first time she's ever smoked on stage much to our surprise, since 90% of their songs talk about being in love and being high.
This is their new video for "When I'm With You", which I can't watch due to my coulrophobia and added hatred of Ronald McDonald. But I imagine it's good anyway, plus the song is amazing.
Dance, dance, dance!
