Disco in Kokomo With the Beach Boys and Gloria Gaynor at the Fillmore April 14

Categories: Concert Preview
Gloria Gaynor says: "We will survive!"
Who's ready to kick off those flip-flops, slurp back some piña coladas, and go disco dancing barefoot on the sands of Kokomo? The Beach Boys will be there. And Gloria Gaynor too. But, um, it's also gonna cost you $325.

C'mon, people. Don't be so cynical. The big fat pricetag isn't a cash grab. It's actually your generous contribution toward Voices Against Brain Cancer's not-for-profit campaign to eradicate cranial tumors of all kinds through the combined power of science and song.

Admittedly, the fundraiser's lineup is kinda random. As already mentioned, you've got the Boys' surf pop and Gaynor's club anthems. But the Osmond Brothers and Foreigner's lead singer Lou Gramm will also be tossing off some tunes.

And here's the common link: Beach Boys cofounder Carl Wilson fought (and lost) a bout with brain cancer while Wayne Osmond, Gramm, and Gaynor's brother-in-law are all survivors.

Do your bit. And just like Gloria said: "We will survive."

The Beach Boys and Gloria Gaynor with the Osmond Brothers and Lou Gramm of Foreigner. Thursday, April 14. Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The concert begins at 6 p.m. and tickets cost $148 to $298 plus fees via livenation.com. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.

A great cause. The Beach Boys today tour with Mike Love and Bruce Johnston from the old days. Though without any of the Wilson brothers, they still provide their trademark tight harmonies. One of the best examples is “Sloop John B,” the biggest hit of the Beach Boys’ landmark “Pet Sounds” album. The song is an updated version of a West Indies folk song. On my Rockaeology blog at http://bit.ly/f5yfvE I write that Brian Wilson was inspired to create “Pet Sounds” after hearing the Beatles’ “Rubber Soul” – "a whole album with all good stuff."
