One of the great things about the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson is the California mythology they created. The songs became a musical fantasyland where the troubled times that surrounded the music's creation didn't seem to exist. This evening was right in line with that sentiment. When Wilson sings something so pure and innocent as "the bad guys know us and they leave us alone," it brings you into that childlike enchanted fantasy.
