Concert Calendar: Best Coast comes to Georgetown
WGTB presents Best Coast
Saturday, November 20, Bulldog Alley ($5), doors at 8:30 p.m.
The Los Angeles band Best Coast released its debut album Crazy For You in July. This beach-pop concert will make you temporarily forget the chilly temperatures, impending snow, and lack of daylight. Best Coast has an unrefined sound drawing influence from 60s girl groups and post punk bands. Their raw and fuzzy sound makes their lyrics incomprehensible, but the words “love”, “boyfriend”, “miss”, “weed”, and “cats” often make their way to the surface.

Sunday, November 21, 9:30 Club ($25), doors at 7 p.m.
Formed in 1990, The Frames is one of Ireland’s biggest indie rock bands with a sound comparable to Coldplay. They are doing a twentieth anniversary tour as a part of (RED)NIGHTS, which donates $2 from every ticket purchase to benefit the global (RED) fund. Buy you ticket as soon as possible because the Frames typically play sold-out concerts.

Monday, November 22, 9:30 Club ($25), doors at 6 p.m.
