The Beach Boys at Merriweather

[caption id="attachment_8649" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Three out of five original Beach Boys are still kicking.[/caption]My review of Friday's night's Beach Boys concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion is in today's Washington Post. I thought it was odd that the 14-piece band played along to the recorded vocal track of Dennis Wilson (d. 1983) singing "Forever" and then to a recording of Carl Wilson (d. 1998) singing "God Only Knows," but the fact that "Heroes and Villains" made the setlist inclines me to forgive them anything. Here's my favorite cover of "God Only Knows," performed by Elvis Costello and the Brodsky Quartet in I think 1995.
