What's it like to go from a tiny stoner, scuz-pop act, to a veritable brand in the matter of just a few years? Just ask California's Best Coast, who, just weeks ago, announced that the band's singer Bethany Cosentino teaming up with Urban Outfitters for a clothing line. 

All this extracurricular stuff hasn't stopped the band from putting out more music, though. 2012 will mark another full length as well as a tour that will pass through Dallas at the Granada Theater on Friday, June 1. The band will be joined Nashville's Jeff The Brotherhood and Denton's Mind Spiders. Tickets for the show are on sale for $21 at the Granada's ticket website.

Also at the Granada, Nick Lowe will perform on Wednesday, May 9, with The Autumn Defense. You might remember Lowe as the charming, white haired guy who opened for Wilco at their most recent Dallas show, or for the multitudes of hits he churned out for Stiff Records and elsewhere in the '70s.

Tickets for this show are also on sale at the Granada ticket website for $30-$49.
