Brian Wilson Plays Pet Sounds (Northside Festival @ McCarren Park, Brooklyn, NY)
This past Sunday (6/12/16) Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys performed the entirely of the album Pet Sounds at the Northside Festival in Brooklyn, NY. To honor the album’s 50th anniversary, Wilson joined forces with Blondie Chaplin and Al Jardine to recreate the famed album’s magic.
Pet Sounds is regarded by music critics as one of the greatest albums of all time, and the set did not disappoint. Brian Wilson’s solo performance was filled with bouts of charm, including the phrase “I’ve got another one for ya!” uttered between every single track. At one point, Wilson forced his backing band to also break into a rendition of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” that was silly and heart warming.
Between the sunshine, happy tunes, and Wilson’s jovial charm, the show was one of the most positive and warming sets of the summer. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you catch Brian Wilson’s tour!
