Brian Wilson to Play Ultra-Tiny Show in SF
Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson typically plays arenas, so we were shocked to find out that his latest tour includes a stop at the San Francisco Art Exchange. The rock-and-roll-themed gallery is currently featuring an exhibition of artist Sir Peter Blake, responsible for a number of iconic rock covers, including that of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper. Blake's latest work is a box set of collages and a book inspired by Wilson's most recent album, That Lucky Old Sun-- only 1,000 copies total. Wilson and his band will play an intimate live show in the tiny gallery on Saturday, January 23, to celebrate the set's release.
With an opportunity like this, however, there's a catch: tickets are only available to those who purchase the box set ($1,500) or another piece of rock-related art, such as rare photographs of Wilson and the Beatles (a cool $5,000 each). If you're a Wilson diehard, though, you may already be pulling out your wallet for a chance to see the great up close.
