Here’s one vote for a medley of “Sugar Man” and “Surf’s Up”…

For some, it might be a dream double bill: this summer erstwhile Beach Boys mainman Brian Wilson will be touring the U.S., bringing along opening act Rodriguez (of Searching for Sugarman fame). Wilson’s supporting a new solo album, No Pier Pressure, and will be joined by former Beach Boy Al Jardine and late ’70s touring member Blondie Chaplin. The album hits April 7 via Capitol – here’s a trailer and video (“The Right Time”). Tour dates listed at the bottom.

Meanwhile, in June a Wilson biopic hits theaters, Love and Mercy, directed by Bill Pohlad and starring John Cusack, Paul Dano (as Wilson), Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti.  Here’s the trailer:
