Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds 

When: Fri., Aug. 19, 8 p.m. 2016
Phone: 919-996-8711
Price: $47-$108
Last year’s biopic Love & Mercy told the emotional story of Brian Wilson, splitting its time between the mid-sixties period when Wilson wrote and recorded the Beach Boys’ brilliant Pet Sounds and Wilson’s struggles with his health in the eighties. Pet Sounds hits its fiftieth anniversary this year, and remains an unimpeachable part of the American music canon with its rich, gorgeous textures and miniature symphonies disguised as pleasant pop songs. The Beach Boys’ rifts and fractures are well documented over the decades, but here, Wilson presents his masterpiece backed by a band that includes longtime collaborators Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. It’s been a brutal year for losing musical heroes—now’s the time to bask in Wilson’s gentle, golden glow. —Allison Hussey
