Bethany Cosentino often seemed surprised and a bit overwhelmed by all the faces at The Observatory looking back at her and the rest of Best Coast as the band concluded its tour in the heart of the OC in support of California Nights.

The crowded venue was a passionate one, squealing, singing along, and moving about in delight.

The band barreled through a massive setlist of favorites and covers as fans onstage blew back both Cosentino and guitarist Bobb Bruno’s hair in dramatic fashion.

Openers The Lovely Bad Things made its way back to the stage for a few dance moves during Best Coast’s encore of “Boyfriend” as the two bands bid farewell to the tour.

Playing music with best friends is the ultimate reward for The Lovely Bad Things, who always seem to be having a good time. The multi-vocalists/instrumentalists that comprise the band won over the crowd with its antics, especially when guitarist Tim Hatch joined in the crowd surfing.
