Best Coast's debut album Crazy For You turned 10 on July 27, and to celebrate the anniversary the duo is throwing a virtual birthday bash on August 14 that includes Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno playing the album in full for the first time, archival footage from 2010-11, an intimate meet and greet with 30 fans, and special guests like Paramore's Hayley Williams, blink-182's Mark Hoppus, and CHVRCHES' Lauren Mayberry joining in the fun.
“Crazy for You truly changed my life,” Cosentino said in a statement. “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. When I started this band, I had no expectations of what would happen, I just wanted to make and play music with my friend. [Multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno] 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 broadcast airs August 14 at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST, and tickets are available here. For those who want to celebrate but aren't available at that time, the video will be archived for 72 hours. All tips will be donated to The Loveland Foundation, which brings "opportunity and healing to communities of color, especially to Black women and girls, by helping provide financial assistance to those seeking therapy and beyond."
