Stream Best Coast’s D.C. Performance

    God bless the good folks at NPR for recording, archiving and posting the live shows we’re dying to hear — their mothers must have taught them to share at an early age. Here’s Best Coast performing at The 9:30 Club in D.C., going through songs from new album The Only Place, as well as the choicest cuts from 2010’s Crazy For You. On record, the songs are dreamy and fuzzed-out; live, they sounds decidedly beefier, and Bethany Cosentino manages to nail all her vocal parts, even the ones that sound like they require enough air to inflate a kiddie pool. Stream the whole Best Coast performance here.
