these photos are from Life magazine’s archives: Teenage Music – The Beachboys, The Righteous Brothers, ABC’s “Shindig” … i’m assuming it’s one of those american tv specials from the late fifties / early sixties where a bunch of kids would gather in a studio & dance wildly to a hip band (think Grease). oh yes, it looks like a ton of fun.
