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.

    'Southpaw' review: Jake Gyllenhaal's boxer fights through shameless cliches

    A flurry of haymakers in the form of boxing movie cliches, "Southpaw" was conceived as a loose remake of "The Champ" — Wallace Beery in 1931, Jon Voight in 1979 — tailored for Marshall Mathers, also known as Eminem. The rage-iest rap star on the planet took the initial meetings with director Antoine...

    'Do I Sound Gay?' review: Doesn't say enough about speech issues

    For a film largely about speech, the provocatively titled documentary "Do I Sound Gay?" has little of great significance to say. Writer-director-star David Thorpe attempts to probe the whys and wherefores of what he calls the stereotypical "gay male voice," but he ends up crafting a naval-gazing...

    There are courtroom dramas, and then there's "Court," Chaitanya Tamhane's impressive debut, which flays alive India's justice system while commenting on class, education and access to power. Managing to be both extremely rational and extremely humane, the film works so well thanks to an intelligent,...

    The Belgian-French import "Alleluia" is inspired by the late-1940s case of American criminals Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez, a.k.a. the Lonely Hearts Killers. Although stylish and unsettling, the film can't hold a candle to the 1970 movie "The Honeymoon Killers," writer-director Leonard Kastle's...
