Beach Fossils perform old favorites and “Somersault Cuts” at sold-out Fillmore in San Francisco

New York’s Beach Fossils continued their West Coast tour Saturday night with a stop at San Francisco’s historic Fillmore. Their show drew in a massive crowd of fans, but unfortunately due to the show being sold out, many fans were left outside desperately trying to get a hold of tickets to enter.

Beach Fossils is known for their lo-fi dream pop sound and chill tunes, but regardless of how mellow the music was, fans were still able to create a huge mosh pit in the middle of the floor while others were sitting on top of each others shoulders. This also came with an endless wave of crowd surfers that would often make their way to the stage and dive back in.

Their set list consisted of old favorites from all their previous albums along with new material off their latest album Somersault. Cover songs were also thrown into the mix. During a guitar change, singer Dustin Payseur had broken some guitar strings on both of his guitars, leaving the band to continue into their acoustic cover of Oasis’ Wonderwall while their guitar tech worked to get things fixed. The crowd sang along at the top of their lungs and Beach Fossils eased back in and finished their show with a lot of energy.
