Okay, so I stand corrected; my dad told me today that one of his all-time favorite bands, The Beach Boys, is actually coming to Galveston -- not just Houston, but Ground Zero G-Town -- to play a benefit concert for Ike survivors (by way of the United Way of Galveston) on Saturday, November 1st at Moody Gardens (which, thankfully, appears to have mostly survived the hurricane intact).
They're playing with a local band I've never heard of called The Coastliners, and no, I sincerely doubt Brian Wilson will be in attendance himself (for Beach Boys afficionados, this is apparently Mike Love & Bruce Johnston, plus a bunch of side guys that includes one of The Cowsills), but the hell with it -- this is very cool. They may not be the biggest band in the universe these days, but I seriously respect the fact that they're coming to help our neighbors down the freeway out. Tickets are $20 for lawn seats or $45 for "premium seating," which I'm assuming means closer to the stage.
The show's organizers are also encouraging concert attendees to bring non-perishable food items, and according to the news the Red Cross will be on hand, too, if you want to help out that way -- every little bit helps...
