The Beach Boys visit the Green Music Center

The iconic band The Beach Boys will be visiting the Green Music Center on Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. to perform some of their most famous songs for youth who may not know them and adults who grew up with them. For those who aren’t familiar, The Beach Boys have been making music for more than a half-century, with dozens of chart-toppers including “Surfin’ USA,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” and “Good Vibrations.” The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who continue the legacy of the band alongside many other familiar faces. Every ticket comes with a free download of Mike Love’s new album, “12 Sides of Summer.”

The show will be performed at Andrews Hall at the Sonoma Community Center from Sept.
