Before the Who were stolen from us (and became a bad frat-boy 70’s rock band), they were weirdo smart art fags.
And before Tommy was a sorority-girl Broadway show, it was a weirdo batch of smart guitar demos.
After you see Sean Nelson sing the (entire!!) 1969 24-song opera at the Crocodile tonight, you will understand why Tommy (and Sean Nelson) are so important.
Do not miss Sean simultaneously play the parts of the Adulteress, the Acid Queen, the sadist, the Pinball Wizard, and the teenage Messiah.
