Best Coast at the Crane Room at Tufts

Best Coast perform "I Want You" at Tufts

Less than a week following the performance that landed her band a giant photo and rave review in the New York Times, Best Coast frontwoman Bethany Cosentino was huddled with her iPhone in the corner of a classroom at Tufts. "Sitting in a corner watching fluffy lumbers, googling maine coons," she tweeted from the Crane Room last night as she waited to perform. Cosentino and her two bandmates, following New Jersey lo-fi act Fluffy Lumbers and grungy trio KC Quilty, played exactly what you'd expect: A short, sweet, fuzzy set.

"We don't have a set list," Cosentino said. "We're trying this new thing where we take turns picking songs to play." After about 45 minutes, they'd zipped through most of the material from their 7-inches that earned them fuzz-buzzworthiness -- including "Sun Was High (So Was I)," "So Gone," and "When I'm With You" -- interspersed with new songs from a full-length that's slated to come out later this year. Check out the video for "I Want You," above.
