Best Coast brings ‘California Nights’ to Reno’s Cargo

Best Coast

Hey Nevada, welcome to the Cali state of mind.

Best Coast, featuring singer-songwriter and guitaritist Bethany Cosentino and multi-instrumentalist Bob Bruno, brings its pop/rock music to the Cargo Concert Hall in Reno’s Whitney Peak Hotel on Saturday, Aug. 27. Advance tickets are $17 for the all-ages show or $20 at the door, which opens at 8 p.m.

A former childhood actress from Los Angeles, Cosentino formed Best Coast in 2009, inspired by her love of 1950s and ’60s surf rock and girl groups.

Last year, the band released its third studio album, “California Nights,” which includes the self-titled hit along with “Heaven Sent” and “Feeling OK.”

“California Nights is a brighter, more sparky, more sophisticated, more psychedelic Best Coast album across the board, embodying the rich lightness and the stinging darkness of a California state of mind,” the band’s online bio explains.

Cosentino’s take on the album: “It’s about a journey, accepting the things you have no control over; it’s about dealing with life like an adult and, at the end of the day, reminding yourself that there is no reason to be sad and you have every right to feel okay.”

A known insomniac, Cosentino often writes music in the undisturbed quiet of the still dark early morning hours. The band recently toured with the Go-Go’s, her idols as a teen-ager. On Facebook, she was pictured next to a spare-tire cover that read “Silly Boys, Jeeps Are For Girls.”

Day Wave opens Saturday’s show. Singer Jackson Phillips of Oakland, California, is touring in support of his “Hard To Read” EP, offering another view of the Cali state of mind.
