PLEASE! Get some East Coast dates of this in 2018!!! This is genuinely exciting. A brand new live experience from a Beach Boy...and frankly, the best vocally set Beach Boy these days.

This is a show I would go out of my way to see. Hope it goes well for Al. He's long overdue for some recognition.

In Mpls. Yes! in Mpls.  This is big News... Al is , well in a way kicking of for the Super Bowl that is being played in Minnesota.  What a great band to start the party with.  People start showing up 2 weeks early.  Don't miss it, don't even be late.  If you make the trip it is a cold place that time of year.  Way up North where the air get's cold doesn't even do justice to the biting truth.  Two shows and a chance to see Swede's drink cold beer and see a town that doesn't sleep.  It's fun , fun, fun!

This is exactly the kind of show of show I was hoping Al would tour with, small, intimate, acoustic, focus on vocals and hidden gems. Hope he comes to the East cost Metro area.

There's a place in Annapolis, MD called Rams Head On Stage that would be PERFECT for a show like this..

Fingers crossed

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Nice write up but of course there is a glaring error in the article - Al played lead guitar in the Beach Boys?

Would love to see this show but the chance of it getting to New Orleans is probably nil.

It'll be interesting to see if it indeed remains just Al and Matt, or if they add anybody else to flesh it out at all (e.g. Billy Hinsche on keys).

This has the potential to be the most intriguing, enjoyable new idea any member of the band has taken on since Brian did "Smile" in 2004.

Hopefully (I would only assume), he and Matt will do some solid rehearsals. Those in-store record store deals Al did a few years ago were *great*, but he often had a penchant for stopping and starting songs, and not finishing them.

I wouldn't begrudge Al doing *some* of the "hits", but of course the whole purpose of this would be to go somewhat deep.

Let's throw some song titles out that we think would work well with a two-voice, one-guitar arrangement. I'm looking less at simply my own "wish list", but more a list of what seems plausible that Al would pick and could in this setting/arrangement, with some degree of emphasis on "Al-centric" songs:

Take A Load Off Your Feet
Lookin' at Tomorrow
Santa Ana Winds
Wake the World
A Postcard from California
California Dreamin' (Postcards arrangement)
California Saga: California
Island Girl
All This Is That
Out In the Country
Add Some Music to Your Day
Our Sweet Love
Feel Flows
Vegetables

We can also look at his 2014 Rubin NYC gig, where it was a group of acoustic instruments, to get a possible idea of what he might do:

Transcendental Meditation
TM Song
At My Window
Wake The World
A Postcard From California
Sail On Sailor - w/ Blondie & Paul Shaffer
Waves Of Love
Help Me, Rhonda
Cabinessence
Where Have All The Flowers Gone - w/ Blondie on piano
So Long It's Been Good To Know You - w/ Blondie on piano
Barbara Ann (by request) - w/ Blondie on backing vocals

It also goes without saying that Al should record these gigs and put either one of them out, or a "Best of" selected from the various gigs. And not take 10 years to release it.

A video shoot and Blu-ray would be even better, though I realize this whole thing is undoubtedly not a high-budget enterprise.

The guy producing the show, Keith Putney, produces a lot of other shows for other similar artists. Looks like he books shows for Joey Molland/Badfinger, Denny Laine, Billy J. Kramer, Peter Asher, etc.

The name seemed extra familiar to me beyond the concert promotion stuff, but I couldn't put my finger on it. But reading his bio: http://www.keithputneyproductions.net/bio.html

I found that he was the owner of a record store, Compact Disc Land in Palo Alto, CA on University Ave. near Stanford University that I used to check out all the time back during the time he owned it in the late 90s and early 2000s. Scored tons of cool Beatles stuff at that shop. Probably some BB stuff too.
