Today, Los Angeles duo Best Coast – comprised of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno – are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their landmark debut album, Crazy For You, which was officially released a decade ago today on Mexican Summer.
In honor of the album’s tenth birthday, Cosentino and Bruno have put together all sorts of special, celebratory things, including a performance filmed in quarantine of the duo playing the album from start to finish for the first time ever. The night will also feature special guests, including Hayley Williams of Paramore, Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES, and lots more, as well as archival footage from 2010/2011, interviews with Bethany and Bobb, and a very special, intimate meet and greet for 30 fans only.
The whole shebang happens on August 14th at 6 pm PDT via Seated. Tickets for the online show are on sale NOW; click HERE to grab them. All tips from the event will be donated to The Loveland Foundation, bringing opportunity and healing to communities of color, especially to Black women and girls, by helping provide financial assistance to those seeking therapy and beyond.
Says Cosentino, “Crazy for You truly changed my life. I was 22 years old, feeling so lost, confused and anxious – and so I wrote a bunch of songs about it. I had no idea the album would impact people the way it did back then, and I had no idea its legacy would last a decade later. When I started this band, I had no expectations of what would happen, I just wanted to make and play music with my friend. Bobb and I feel so lucky to have been able to do everything we have over the last 10 years, and we are so appreciative of our fans who have stuck with us since the beginning.”
The band will also be releasing limited edition merch for the anniversary as well, including face masks and t-shirts with Crazy For You-inspired artwork (and yes, that includes Snacks the Cat). Click HERE to check everything out.
