There is one thing I am quite certain of, and that is that I am so tired of the gross cold and rainy weather we have been having in Dallas. If you feel the same way I do, there is a perfect solution to brighten you spirits this winter.  Two indie surf-rock groups are teaming up to cure our Seasonal Affective Disorder on the Wavves + Best Coast “Summer Is Forever Tour”.  Front woman Bethany Cosentino states of the tour, “We’re both in summery California bands and I think by doing the tour in winter, we’re bringing summer to places where it’s f****** freezing”.  Nathan Williams of Wavves and Bethany of Best Coast share so many similarities aside from their common fuzzy, low-fi, beach-y sound (think punk rock Beach Boys): they are dating, they have mad love for their feline friends (in particular the now famous Snacks the cat), an equally great love for a particular green plant, and they each put on a wildly fun live performance.  Both loose cannons, you never know if Nathan is going to start a fight on stage, or Bethany will just talk about  her cat- but I will promise it will be entertaining and worth every penny.  They are coming with their friends No Joy (a Breeders-esq shoegaze group from Canada that is equally rockin) to the Granada Theater this Monday the 24th (just a skip and a jump away from campus!) Whether you want to warm up in the middle of a Wavves mosh pit, or dance form the balcony to Best Coast, you are guaranteed to forget you are not on a California beach with the entire summer break ahead of you- and that is exactly what I want to feel at the beginning of a semester!
