In late April I took a nice little trip out to sunny California, where I caught Coachella Weekend Two and even kicked it with Marilyn Manson at his West Hollywood pad. It's a gorgeous place, that California, and I want to go back. Like, soon. I was reminded of its awesomeness last week when I saw Cali Kings the Beach Boys here in New York City, but this new clip of Best Coast rocking their I-love-California anthem "The Only Place" Wednesday night on Letterman has me trolling Kayak.com for cheap plane tickets. 

What do you guys think of "The Only Place"? Does it compare to singer-guitarist Bethany Cosentino's first album, Crazy for You? I haven't spent enough time with the new record to say one way or the other, but I DO love Best Coast's breakout single "Sun Was High (So Was I)," which is yet another tribute to all things SoCal.
