Yes, you read the headline correctly. The Beach Boys are still together (well, a few of them anyway) and playing the casino circuit. Hot off last year's private appearance at the Republican National Convention, remaining Beach Boys Mike Love and Bruce Johnston continue to tour the country in the name of California girls everywhere, this time to promote yet another best-of compilation, Summer Love Songs. While bandmate Brian Wilson has long since moved on, Love and Johnston continue to milk the cash cow that is the Beach Boys legacy, giving baby boomers nationwide the chance to see the band live again—sort of. Who knows? Maybe John Stamos will jump in on drums, like he used to back in his Full House days. With the band's rotating cast of stand-in musicians, anything could happen.
Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 7. Continues through May 8, 2009
