If a season can be introduced with music, then singer Bethany Cosentino and guitarist Bob Bruno’s Best Coast is the band to do it. For NXNE, they’re bringing their trademark West Coast–style alt/surf-rock to town, and it’s both both summery and psychedelic. California Nights, the band’s brand new album that’s received rapturous reviews since its release this spring, features a glorious title track, whose “California nights, make me so happy I could die!” lyric makes us feel the same way. Expect ’90s alt-rock polished with heartfelt lyrics and melodic, summer tunes that make for perfect sing-a-longs on a warm summer evening. Even better? The Californian duo’s gig is one of the few free performances at this year’s festival.
