Ring in the New Year with everyones favorite handicapped-molestation-victim-turned world-beater. That would be the Whos Tommy, and the entire rock opera will be performed by Captain Quirk & Friends tonight at Miners Alley Playhouse. I used to play in bands in college, and wed do pieces of Tommy, explains producer and director Rick Bernstein. Its just brilliant one of the best albums ever made. After the performance of Tommy complete with audio-visual staging elements -- Captain Quirk & Friends will perform covers from other classic rock bands until midnight.
