MUSIC: Brian Wilson @ Tanglewood, Lenox. The Beach Boys mastermind – who looks nothing like at all like John Cusack, by the way – rolls into town with an ace band featuring special guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin cranking their way through the classic album Pet Sounds album – allegedly for the last time. Just don’t expect Brian to contribute too much beyond his mere presence… 2:30pm. $25-$109.

Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, and the City of Albany is honoring your dad, mine and everyone else’s with the second annual music fest featuring live music by Southside Johnny & the Poor Fools (perhaps a rootsier version of the Asbury Jukes?), Greater Nippertown premiere funk-folk singer-songwriter Bryan Thomas and and Vermont’s Bondville Boys. With food, beverage tastings, vendors, kids’ activities and more family fun. 1-6pm. FREE.
