"Harmony"--Maps & Legends tonight, 7-9 pm: Doo-wop and more
Harmony--it's easy to talk about and hard to achieve, yet we depend on it all the time. Harmony is the art of maintaining your own integrity while being part of a group. Tonight we'll hear cascades of harmonizing vocals from all over the world of rock and roll, from classic doo-wop groups like The Coasters to the sunny sounds of The Beach Boys, from the somber tones of The Band and Dawes to the sublime silliness of the 1963 hit song, "My Boyfriend's Back." We'll take a closer look at the fascinating music of The Dirty Projectors, a band that deconstructs the rock and roll sound but keeps the harmonies intact.
