Brian Wilson at the Keswick Theater

Quick hits from the Brian Wilson show at the Keswick Theater, Saturday November 22nd:

- He did two sets. The first set was comprised of Beach Boys songs. The second set was his new album That Lucky Old Sun.

- His band was amazing. Drums, percussion, bass, three guitars, saxophone, keys, vibes, and a back up vocalist. Nine voices, including Brian, were harmonizing together. From his website: Brian Wilson calls his band the best he's ever worked with. Paul McCartney echoed these sentiments when he called them "the best touring band in the world."

- He opened with "California Girls." Other popular Beach Boys songs included "Little Surfer Girl," "I Get Around," "In My Room," and "Do You Wanna Dance?" among others.

- Two guys got in a fight. One in his 50's, the other in his 30's. The younger guy was being too loud for the older guy. They had words, the older guy pushed the younger guys face, an ambulance came for the younger guy because his contact rolled back in his eye.

-I had to split at intermission, so I don't know if he played the best song they ever wrote in the encore:

Growing-up, I was the only kid in Harlem blasting the Beach Boys; even my mother laughed at me.

Thanks for sharing that Michael, I like to think good music has no boundaries.
