Live Tweeting Best Coast at Grand Central

Southern California surf-rock duo Best Coast will visit the East Coast Tuesday, July 10 for a show at Grand Central in downtown Miami. The show is part of a tour in support of the band's sophomore record, "The Only Place," whose eponymous single is an ode to California's scenery.

In the hook, vocalist Bethany Consentino chants, "We like to sit around and stare/at the ocean/at the sun/at the mountains/at the trees... Why would you live anywhere else?"

Although mountains are absent from South Florida scenes, there are plenty of trees and ocean views down here. Tuesday night, I'll be at the Best Coast show to see if Consentino shows South Florida some love.

I'll be live-tweeting from @SSEntertainment, and posting photos to @mariamurriel on Instagram. To join our conversation or share your photos, use hashtag #SSatBestCoast.

    A grandly ridiculous theatrical tradition born in ancient Greece, deus ex machina meant, literally, a god borne by a machine descending from the sky to determine a story's outcome.

    Review: 'Revenge of the Mekons'

    An extremely tasty slice of fanboydom, Joe Angio's music documentary "Revenge of the Mekons" presents the amoeba-like wonder of the title band (the Mekons, that is, not revenge) as a creative anomaly in the music business.

    Review: 'Child 44'

    Part serial-killer thriller, part old-school anti-Soviet propaganda, "Child 44" plays like a curious relic of an earlier Cold War mindset, when Western audiences took comfort that they were living on the right side of the Iron Curtain and relied on movies to remind them as much.

    Review: 'Monkey Kingdom'

    Compile all the sufferings and adversities heaped upon all the vulnerable protagonists in the complete works of Charles Dickens, from "Little Dorrit" to "Oliver Twist," and you'd still fall short of the 81 minutes of hardship endured by Maya, the simian heroine of Disneynature's new nature documentary...
