I could spend every bit of the 940 words on this page relating exactly how this particular Beach Boys lineup came to be booked for a show tonight at the Lawn. But that would leave exactly zero words for an actual interview with one of them. So I'll be brief: tonight, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Randell Kirsch, Jeffrey Foskett and Scott Totten will take the stage alongside co-headlining group The Temptations. So that means no Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks – like I said, it's complicated.

NUVO: It's a big week for '60s bands in Indy. We have the Grass Roots and The Turtles coming through, too.
Johnston: You're [also] having the Cowsill Family coming through [on the Happy Together tour] – our drummer John Cowsill is one of the Cowsills, and his sister and two of his brothers are coming through.
