Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , , , , , on June 8, 2012 by 30daysout

We’re goin’ to see the Beach Boys tonight, playing in Houston. Hope it doesn’t rain! Here we are, headin’ up to the outdoor concert venue.

Not really – it’s from the 1964 flick Muscle Beach Party, with Frankie, Annette and Dick Dale. Little Stevie Wonder’s in it too. What does this have to do with the Beach Boys? Songs for the movie were written by Roger Christian, Gary Usher and Brian Wilson, the unholy gods of everything surf.
