Al Jardine Surfs into Cerritos: Mike Love’s version of the Beach Boys recently performed at the Greek, and Brian Wilson has been on tour with Chicago. Fellow BB Al Jardine performed with Wilson, and now he has his own show at the Cerritos Center. Any opportunity to hear those old classics live should be taken.
Not only that, but his son Matt Jardine is performing with him, as are Carnie and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips. According to the Cerritos Center website, Jardine and his family and friends will, “perform the group’s timeless songs – such as Help Me, Rhonda; California Girls; I Get Around; God Only Knows; and Good Vibrations. The night also includes tunes from the Wilson Phillips catalogue: Hold On; The Dream Is Still Alive; You’re in Love; Impulsive; and Release Me.”
In September of this year, Jardine’s 2010 debut solo album Postcard from California was released digitally for the first time.’
“I can’t believe it’s been twelve years since Postcard came out and I thank everyone involved in the production and creation of this album to help me get my songs out there,” said Al Jardine in a statement. “Brian’s advice to aspiring young songwriters has always been ‘finish your songs’ so I took it to heart and I hope everyone who has listened to A Postcard from California feels my excitement and enthusiasm for this great land and sea of ours and our need to protect it forever. Thank you for all your support over the years, it is greatly appreciated and I will continue to dedicate Postcard to all the pets we love and who love us back!”
Maybe we’ll get some of those tunes too.
Al Jardine Surfs into Cerritos: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 21 at the Cerritos Center.
