    Just picked up tickets to their show here in Toronto in January. It will be my first live show since Los Lobos just before everything shut down. Anywho, I love the Beths, my fave new band in ages.





    Cheers,

    Any band that puts a Peugeot into their film clip is ok by me!

    Really like them! Belly's album "Star" has been one of my favorite albums since I first heard it and I got a similar feeling when I listed to The Beth's for the first time.

    I enjoy them, saw them at a small bar called Atwood’s on their first tour here and I was very aware that they wouldn’t be playing small venues for very long.

    I saw them at a tiny venue here in Boston right after the release of Future Me Hates Me.

    THEY WERE AMAZING.

    One of the best shows I've seen in years, and I see a lot of shows. I have tix to see them again in January at The Sinclair in Cambridge.

    Little Death is such a great song, and their drummer Tristan is impressive. Super friendly and down to earth folks. You'll have a great time.

    A great band from the Midwest called Bad Bad Hats opened for them and they were very good as well. They also have a new album out called Walkman.

    Any band with a drummer with so few drums is OK with me.

    Great band! Will attend their show in April 2022 in Prague. All time favourite is Jump Rope Gazers ;)

    Hi.

    The Beths are cool, but this is Kiwi power pop.

    I don't get it....where's the other Beth?
    Sounds good with just one, though. ;)

    Can't remember how I found them, but Spotify says I 'liked' Future Me back in mid 2019. Didn't realize they were from NZ.

    Same vein, broadly: How about Charly Bliss?

    Premier Guitar just had a fascinating video with the guitarist from the Beths recently.

    They have their own band space full of weird vintage Kiwi gear that was never really seen anywhere else. Really different stuff from back in the day when gear from the US/Europe/Japan was super hard to import.

    And the band is just full of interesting ideas.

    I had a beer with Jon prior to their set and he's a cool guy, very talented on that Les Paul. Great harmonies too.

    During the pandemic, he built their studio himself... demo, framing, everything. Pretty impressive.
