Review by Jonathan Sweet :

The world-famous Beach Boys will be performing tonight to a sold-out Robertson Memorial Field House.

The Beach Boys will headline a concert including the Electric Prunes, the Left Banke and Keith as part of the "Pet Sounds" tour.

The university is planning special security measures to keep the "screaming crowds of teeny-boppers" expected for the concert under control, according to officials.
