Los Angeles duo Best Coast has announced a 10th anniversary virtual show celebrating their debut album Crazy For You. The one-night event will take place on Aug. 14 via Seated and feature special guests, archival footage, interviews and more.
For the anniversary show, members Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno will reveal a performance filmed in quarantine of the duo playing the album from start to finish for the first time ever. The show will also have archival footage from 2010 and 2011, interviews with Cosentino and Bruno and special guests Hayley Williams of Paramore, Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Lauren Mayberry of Chvrches and more.
“Crazy for You truly changed my life. I was 22 years old, feeling so lost, confused and anxious – and so I wrote a bunch of songs about it. I had no idea the album would impact people the way it did back then, and I had no idea its legacy would last a decade later,” said Cosentino in a release. “When I started this band, I had no expectations of what would happen, I just wanted to make and play music with my friend. Bobb and I feel so lucky to have been able to do everything we have over the last 10 years, and we are so appreciative of our fans who have stuck with us since the beginning.”
The duo will also host an intimate meet and greet session for 30 fans. The band will also be releasing limited edition merch for the anniversary as well, including face masks and t-shirts with Crazy For You -inspired artwork.
The anniversary show will kick off at 6pm PDT with tickets starting at $10. All tips from the event will be donated to The Loveland Foundation, which is bringing opportunity and healing to communities of color, especially to Black women and girls, by helping to provide financial assistance to those seeking therapy and beyond.

Today our first album Crazy For You turns 10 years old. Our original plan was to throw a big party and play this thing live for you in the flesh, but 2020 obviously had other plans for us. So instead, we put together a mini concert documentary/virtual birthday party to celebrate with you all. Honestly, it makes more sense this way. When we started Best Coast a decade ago, we were just 2 friends having fun and playing music together – we had no idea where this life would take us. We are so grateful that it brought us where it did and it’s all because of this record. Thank you from the bottom of our VERY OLD hearts for supporting this record when it came out and for still loving it today – we can’t wait to party with you in it’s honor. Tickets for the Crazy For You 10 Year Birthday Party on Friday, August 14 at 6pm PT are on sale now via link in bio! The video will be archived for 72 hours after the premiere, available to watch with your ticket if you can’t tune in live. It’s shot and edited by our dear friend Kevin Hayes @thedirtiestlittlerainbow and mixed by our other dear friend Carlos de la Garza @musicfriend. We also have some new merch to celebrate and a very limited amount of ticket add-ons available for a group Q&A with Bobb and I directly following the premiere. We’re keeping the Q&A small so everyone gets a chance to ask us some questions about Best Coast / our music. All tips from the event will be donated to @thelovelandfoundation, an amazing organization bringing opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls, by helping provide financial assistance to those seeking therapy and beyond.
