Road Trip: Brian Wilson in Springfield, Illinois, Thursday, October 22
All credit goes to Jaime for tipping me off to this show: Beach Boy Brian Wilson is kicking off his U.S. tour tomorrow night at the Sangamon Auditorium in Springfield, Illinois. Tickets are still available, believe it or not. Although Wilson just signed to DIsney Records and plans to record two solo albums (one of Gershwin covers, one of Disney classics), this show is going to feature Beach Boys and solo hits. Power-pop fans take note, too: Wilson's backing band features members of beloved cult act the Wondermints.
