Won't Get Fooled Again: An evening of rare WHO.



Richie Unterberger returns Weds May 11th

On Wednesday, May 11 from 8pm-10pm, Richie Unterberger will present two hours of rare Who film clips from the 1960s and 1970s at Ninth Street Independent Film Center at 145 Ninth Street in San Francisco, as part of its Magic Bus film series featuring musically inspired films. All phases of the Who's first glorious decade from 1964-1974 are covered, from their time as a hitless London club band to their reign as big-time arena rockers. There's also their rise to stardom as equipment smashing pop-art icons; their expansion into psychedelia and rock operas with the phenomenal popularity of Tommy; and their entry into sophisticated stadium setups and synthesizers in the Quadrophenia era. This event is presented in conjunction with Unterberger's new book Won't Get Fooled Again: The Who from Lifehouse to Quadrophenia, and signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.

It has been said that Los Angeles and San Francisco were the last major metropolitan cities in which punk music scenes developed and once it hit California, punk changed shapes numerous times, spread to every corner of the United States and became a permanent fixture in popular culture.
In1984, a teenage Dave Travis decided to capture punk rock in Los Angeles on video tape, a fascination and hobby that he would continue until 1997, logging in hundreds of hours of Los Angeles area shows and interviews. In “A History Lesson Part 1, Travis presents live footage filmed in the spring of 1984 featuring the Meat Puppets, Minutemen, Twisted Roots and Redd Kross interspersed with interviews of members from each group which examines and puts a perspective on the early years of “psychedelic” punk rock in Los Angeles and Phoenix, AZ. Each song by each group is presented from start to finish.
