The Beach Boys, from the "Pet Sounds" album.
Saturday, Jan. 21, High Noon Saloon, 9 pm
With members of beloved Wisconsin bands like Seasaw, Lost Lakes, Yid Vicious and Something To Do, the Exile Project has a knack for taking classic albums and making them their own. This year, they’ll be taking on a pair of Beach Boys classics — Endless Summer and Pet Sounds — playing them front to back. So if you need a little sunshine in your otherwise gray winter, make your way to the High Noon for some good vibrations. With the Low Czars.
press release: Performing "Pet Sounds" + "Endless Summer" In Their Entirety: featuring members of Something To Do, Seasaw, Lost Lakes, Gentle Brontosaurus, Post Social, Melkweed, The Tiny Band, Yid Vicious, Oedipus Tex, The Fauxtons, The Pine Barrens, Negative Example, The Delicate Delegate, Jettkick, Yammer, Despacho + Andy Moore, Chris Eby, Adam Steinquist, Ginny Kinkaid, and more!
The "Exile" show concept came from a late night discussion at the High Noon Saloon. We were talking about the greatness of the Stones "Exile On Main Street" record and how fun it would be to play it on stage from start to finish. We envisioned each song being played by a different band as a way to mix it up and to differentiate it from the other tribute shows in town. The show that year was incredible and sold out the HNS. We followed up last year with The Beatles "White Album". We added some new bands to the line up and it was stellar.
This year we are doing The Beach Boys "Endless Summer" and "Pet Sounds" in an effort to inject some summer into the depths of the Madison winter. Each band is going to do two songs, we did a song lottery and randomly assigned them back in the summer. We also added some more new bands this year to spice things up. It is going to be a blast. - Matt Early
