Brian Wilson presents The Christmas Album Live

Saturday, December 22, 2018 @ 8:00PM

$79, $99, $129

Special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin

Opening Act: Special guest Ruby Friedman

Harmonies. That’s what Christmas songs are all about for music legend Brian Wilson. From the seminal 1964 classic The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album to his acclaimed 2005 solo effort All I Really Want for Christmas, Wilson has been bringing holiday cheer to the world for more than five decades.

This holiday season, for the first time Wilson and his crack band of musicians and vocalists along with long-time bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin will be performing The Christmas Album in its entirety along with cuts from his solo Christmas album and other holiday fan favorites.

Fans can expect to hear Beach Boy classics “Little Saint Nick,” “The Man with all The Toys,” and a selection of Brian’s favorite Yuletide songs including “Blue Christmas” and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.”

He will also perform songs from his critically acclaimed solo album All I Really Want for Christmas named for its Bernie Taupin-penned title track as well as “Christmasey,” with lyrics by his friend Jimmy Webb.

Brian Wilson is a co-founder of The Beach Boys, a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, a multiple-GRAMMY® award winner, and a U.K. Music Hall of Fame inductee. As a member of The Beach Boys, Wilson was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and honored with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

Special guest Ruby Friedman

High-voltage Los Angeles singer-songwriter Ruby Friedman is wrapping up 2018 with a quartet of concert appearances opening for the legendary Brian Wilson in Southern and Northern California and recording sessions with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Randy Newman, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Los Lobos).

Friedman’s latest single “Un4Givn” garnered strong airplay on L.A.’s top-rated NPR outlet KCRW; a video for the song debuted exclusively on the cutting-edge music site Earmilk. In conjunction with its release, she made an appearance at Chris Douridas’ Hollywood artist showcase School Night.

Her album Gem, featuring ten original compositions either written or co-written by Friedman and flashing a bristling rock- and roots-based sound, was named one of the year’s 10 best albums by KPCC air personality and noted critic Steve Hochman. The collection’s lead track “I’m Not Your Friend” received a pre-release debut on both KCRW and KCSN.

She has garnered rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times (“POWERHOUSE”), Hits (“full-throttle talent”), and Kevin Bronson’s Buzzbands.la site (“a thunder-and-lightning barrage of soul and nerves”).
