Best Coast+the Bitters+the Babies


For those too busy getting a second helping of dry ribs to catch these much-anticipated bands at SXSW, this showcase at the Knitting Factory Brooklyn is a good refresher course in blog-core. Surfer Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast spins California dreams out of a distorted guitar and diary-entry lyrics. Toronto duo Bitters, care of Fucked Up member Ben Cook and bandmate Aerin Fogel, make dark-edged doom-grunge sound irresistible. BK incest crew the Babies (comprised of Vivian Girls frontwoman Cassie Ramone, plus members of Woods and Bossy) start the night off right with spacey surf punk. How lo-fi can you go
