Brian Wilson has his dates, and the long-running current incarnation of the Beach Boys led by founding members Mike Love and Bruce Johnston has theirs. The hipsters and record-counter musicologists will of course gravitate to the former, whereas the latter suits regular folks in search of a summer beach party just fine.
The Beach Boys, in a star-stacked, hit-laden double bill with the Temptations, perform at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Friday, July 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $118 at the high end to $36 for lawn, with many stops in between. For tickets and additional information, visit www.bethelwoodscenter.org. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is located at 200 Hurd Road in Bethel.
