Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson to appear at Amoeba Music next week

Get out your calendar — or sleek new smartphone — and save the date. Next Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Don’t know where you’ll be then, you say? We do: At Amoeba Music, 1855 Haight St., in San Francisco, for a can’t-miss in-store event at 6:30 p.m.

That’s when you can actually meet one of rock’s most legendary composers, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, during his special signing appearance for Capitol/EMI’s new “The Smile Sessions” box set.

Purchase it and get it autographed, and also receive — while supplies last — an official, retro-cool “Smile” T-shirt, that day only.

“Smile,” of course, was the fabled unfinished, post-“Pet Sounds” album whose 1966-’67 master tapes were summarily shelved. But with the full participation of original Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love and, of course, Brian Wilson himself, Capitol/EMI unearthed, collected and compiled all of said sessions for this exhaustive anthology.

The artwork for it was created — and inspired by — beat-pop artist Frank Holmes’ intended 1967 sleeve art, as well.

Don’t pass up this golden opportunity to say hello to a true rock and roll hero.
