Best Coast

9 p.m. Wednesday, May 30. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

If you're asking just how long Best Coast can ride songs of fun, sun, love and the comedowns that follow such sugar highs, you're asking the wrong question. The right question is: Why can't all twee bands sound this good? The answer lies in Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno's ideological commitment to pop. The Only Place, their follow-up to 2010's Crazy for You begins with a never-ending beach party and ends with a never-ending dark night of the soul scored according to Phil Spector. In between, Cosentino's lead and harmonies get tighter, the mood gets more paranoid — as girl group pop will — and the fuzz feels a little less fuzzy. And the surf is still up.

Don't Miss: Rising sibling duo of JEFF the Brotherhood opens; early arrival for pysch fans is required.
