Brian Wilson at Pitchfork Festival

The Beach Boys album Pet Sounds celebrated it’s 50th anniversary, so Brian Wilson decided to tour it one last time. The album is undeniably incredible, but for a music festival, the second half of the show where they just play all the old hits made for a more crowd-pleasing performance. Although, all the “Surfin’ USA” and “Help Me Rhonda” in the world doesn’t provide the same emotional and intellectual satisfaction as “Hang On To Your Ego.”
