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.
