|Best Coast @ Sydney|
The first time I heard Best Coast was the song 'Boyfriend' from my friend's record in his living room, I fell in love and went out to get myself a copy of my own record. For the next one and a half month I listened to that record every single day. It's alright that I have to listen to it on a turntable, it's OK not having it on mp3 form, the music was constantly in my head. So when I got the opportunity to see them live, I didn't think twice and got meself a ticket, about two months in advance!
When they finally pulled the curtains open the stage was empty except for instruments in their positions. Then slowly walked in Bobb Bruno with Ali Koehler and Bethany Cosentino following behind. Everyone started cheering and clapping like crazy. They said hello and a little chat was thrown to the audience from Beth then they start playing and it was... a bit disappointing. It was kind of slow and they look slightly bored, except for Bobb who was rockin' out with great awesomeness. After about two songs somebody was brave enough to yell out turn up the guitar which the sound tech guy did and it went better from then on. It was a short set, they played for about an hour, maybe an hour and a half which they also played I think two of their new songs which are pretty cool, got me excited about their new album! Halfway through the set I decided to fuck my disappointment and enjoy it anyway whether the music was bad, alright or really good and then after that I started to had more fun. I was at the front with them playing live and alterations to their album versions. They probably didn't want to play exactly like the record, and if I wanted the ones like the album I should just go home and turn on my turntable, so I cleared my head and did some little dancing and mini head bangs.
