The bill may read Beach Boys, but let’s get something clear: This is not the lineup that wrote and recorded songs like “Good Vibrations” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Sure, the show will feature the nasally pipes of original member Mike Love and the soft croon of frequent collaborator and touring musician Bruce Johnston, but don’t expect off-kilter studio genius Brian Wilson to be in house. He’s off doing his own Pet Sounds anniversary tour, which will stop at Strathmore in September. Until then, let this NSO Pops-backed show serve as an appetite whetter, a nostalgia trip featuring multiple hours of timeless pop classics.
