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.

    'Self/less' review: Re-animation will cost ya, pal

    In the ineffectual new fantasy-thriller "Self/less" the fantastical plot device — a body-switching process costing millions and not covered by any known health plan — is called "shedding." You buy yourself a new, longer life in a younger person's body, and your troubles are over. Or ARE THEY?

    'Men in War' review: A lean, spare account

    Featuring Robert Ryan at his finest, as a platoon leader confronted by snipers, land mines, artillery fire and an inner sense of doubt, director Anthony Mann's "Men in War" (1957) is being screened in a 16 millimeter print Wednesday at Doc Films. It's a bold programming choice for the Fourth of...

    'The Strongest Man' review: Weak humor can't save film without a punch line

    Thinly amusing, "The Strongest Man" stretches a short's worth of potentially funny ideas to feature length, where they slowly and surely lead nowhere in particular.

    'Terminator Genisys' review: Rooting for the apocalypse

    Humanity gets a do-over in "Terminator Genisys," the fifth in the franchise begun in 1984 with "The Terminator." But this screwy revision of the previous "Terminator" movies is so muddled and yakky, you may find yourself rooting for the apocalypse. At one point Arnold Schwarzenegger is thrown through...

    'Magic Mike XXL' review: The complete package

    "Magic Mike XXL" comes up a little short compared with the original, director Steven Soderbergh's blithe and bonny Channing Tatum showcase inspired by Tatum's salad days as a male stripper. This time the jokes are heavier, more on-the-nose, though a surprising percentage of them work anyway.

    'Ted 2' review: More of the same bawdy bear

    "Ted 2" reunites Mark Wahlberg’s insecure wallflower character (it's called acting, folks) with the chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff and racial, sexual, scatological and '80s-reference insults voiced, with movie-saving acumen, by co-writer and director Seth MacFarlane.
