brian wilson (1.24) Head over to the Brooklyn Coffee Tea House Thursday evening for a screening of Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson and the Story of ‘Smile.’ For close to four decades, ‘SMiLE’ by the Beach Boys was perhaps the most famous unreleased album in the history of rock and roll.

Although recording was completed in 1967 the project was shelved in an unbelievably long and convoluted chain of events (see NewMusicBox 12.8.11). Finally in 2011 ‘The Smile Sessions’ a box set collector’s edition of 144 tracks became available and has now been nominated for ‘Best Historical Album’ at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Now the Beach Boys have enlisted Providence publicists Al Gomes and A. Michelle of Big Noise to run the band’s publicity campaign on behalf of the recent Grammy nomination, and to celebrate Big Noise is screening this 2004 documentary which features interviews with Wilson and his many devotees like Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Sir George Martin, Roger Daltrey, and more.

Free, 7pm, Thursday, January 24, Brooklyn Coffee Tea House, 209 Douglas Avenue, all ages
