Disco in Kokomo With the Beach Boys and Gloria Gaynor at the Fillmore April 14

Who's ready to kick off those flip-flops, slurp back some piña coladas, and go disco dancing barefoot on the sands of Kokomo? The

Beach Boys

will be there. And

Gloria Gaynor

too. But, um, it's also gonna cost you $325.

C'mon, people. Don't be so cynical. The big fat pricetag isn't a cash grab. It's actually your generous contribution toward Voices Against Brain Cancer's not-for-profit campaign to eradicate cranial tumors of all kinds through the combined power of science and song.

Admittedly, the fundraiser's lineup is kinda random. As already mentioned, you've got the Boys' surf pop and Gaynor's club anthems. But the Osmond Brothers and Foreigner's lead singer Lou Gramm will also be tossing off some tunes.

And here's the common link: Beach Boys cofounder Carl Wilson fought (and lost) a bout with brain cancer while Wayne Osmond, Gramm, and Gaynor's brother-in-law are all survivors.

Do your bit. And just like Gloria said: "We will survive."

The Beach Boys and Gloria Gaynor with the Osmond Brothers and Lou Gramm of Foreigner. Thursday, April 14. Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The concert begins at 6 p.m. and tickets cost $148 to $298 plus fees via livenation.com. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.
