Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. The only member of the iconic 1960s American surf rock group the Beach Boys who actually surfed with any regularity, Dennis Wilson, drowned in the ocean in 1983. The band’s former creative leader, Brian Wilson, was kicked out of the band again after a brief reunion last year. Not to be derailed, Mike Love and friends have been traveling the country singing hits like “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” and “Surfin’ Safari” for decades, and no matter the lineup, people still love ’em. They return to Santa Rosa on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $65—$85. 707.546.3600.
