Here's every song Brian Wilson played at Mahaffey last night, rolled up into one playlist

You have to use Spotify though.

Last night, Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, and Blondie Chaplin — along with a ten piece band — brought the Beach Boys's Pet Sounds to life for the album's 50th anniversary show at Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida. Wilson also played some of the band's greatest hits along with some more obscure cuts and selections from his solo career.

We were there, and had this to say in our review:

There is a lot of praise to throw around when presented with a production like the one on Tuesday night, but it all boils back down to Brian. It boils down to a troubled, immensely talented man sitting at his piano — sometimes with hands on the keys and sometimes with them resting on his knees — working through songs of his past for a room who lived so much of their lives with his voice coming out of the speakers.
