It got loud at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club when the punk-infused band Wavves and the garage-rock revivalists in Best Coast came together for a night of live music. Wavves opened the show, followed by Best Coast. Both sets were originally webcast live on Jan. 31, 2011 with All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.

Both Wavves and Best Coast are relatively young bands. San Diego-based artist Nathan Williams formed Wavves as a solo project in 2008, while Beth Cosentino started Best Coast with bandmate Bobb Bruno in 2009. Both groups have won over audiences with noisy, lo-fi recordings that wrap addictive pop melodies in gritty guitars and messy beats.

Wavves' latest album is King of the Beach, which is less manic than the band's earlier albums, with more polished production, but no less potent.

Best Coast's debut album, Crazy for You, was released last summer and wound up many best-of lists for the year. NPR Music contributor Carrie Brownstein picked Best Coast as the year's best new artist.
