Tomorrow night, you can turn on VH1 and catch VH1 Rock Honors: The Who, a star-studded tribute to Daltrey, Townshend and Co.
But if live performance is more your thing, you might prefer this note: On August 27, Dallas Theater Center will open a month-long run of The Who's Tommy. And, this week, the DTC announced that the performance will feature Denton-based rock act Oso Closo performing alongside a cast of other actors.
A tall order for the act? Maybe, but I'm leaning toward "great fit" at this point. Head over to Oso Closo's Myspace page, click "The Friendship Song," take a listen and tell me you don't hear arena-sized classic rock aspirations in that song's opening. --Pete Freedman
