Best Coast Setlist
Bully previewed quite a bit of music from their debut album Feels Like, which is coming out June 23rd on on StarTime International (Columbia), including set intro "I Remember", "Brainfreeze", and "Trash". From the sound of the live songs and also listening to the Steve Albini-produced album, I have to agree with critics comparing the band to 90s alt-rock like Dinosaur Jr and Pavement.
Best Coast came on stage to the introduction song of Metallica's "Battery". Apparently, I've read that Metallica is also a huge Best Coast fan, and have picked the band to play at their music festival in 2012.
The fans who filled the dancefloor would often sing along to the more popular song, causing Cosentino to go "emo for one second". She explained that she sometime feels like "sh**", but when she hears people singing back her lyrics, she felt suddenly uplifted.
Highlight of the night will likely be their encore song, "Boyfriend". This is perhaps their best known song, the lead single from their debut studio album Crazy for You from 2010.
