Old Boys Don't Cry 

Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at Wente Vineyards.

You can't go very far these days without tripping across what's arguably a full-fledged Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons revival. Last year's Jersey Boys, a musical based on this Garden State outfit's life story, snagged four Tony Awards while Valli flexed his acting chops in The Sopranos, playing a Brooklyn mobster who went the way of Adriana and Big Pussy. And now Rhino Records has released Jersey Beat: The Music of Frankie Valli, a four-disc box featuring Valli's trademark falsetto front and center on hits like "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," and "Working My Way Back to You." It's really no surprise given how these Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have continued to milk the success that allowed them and their West Coast brethren the Beach Boys to be one of the few American acts regularly storming the charts during a '60s heyday that also encompassed the dominance of British Invasion acts. And now here they are. Thursday, August 30 at Wente Vineyards in Livermore. 8 p.m., $79/$129. WenteVineyards.com
