Damn the Light Promotions and director Steve Barikian are honoring Pete Townshend’s award winning rock musical, Tommy, by way of a tribute concert at Bowery burlesque joint, Duane Park. The cast, comprised of members from the NYC theater community and local rock-n-roll purveyors, promise to put on a performance that “has been carefully sculpted to capture the raw energy of The Who’s live performances throughout the years, while still maintaining the delicate nuances of its famous stage productions.”

It’s happening tonight, with shows at 8:30pm and midnight. The early show is $40, and includes a prixe fixe three-course dinner or seating at the bar (two-drink minimum), while the late-night show is $25pp and has table service available (food available) and seating at the bar (two-drink minimum). Secure your spot by calling 212.732.5555.

If you’d rather get your fix by flipping around the silver ball, the last time we were at Reciprocal Skateboards, they had ‘The Who’s Tommy Pinball Wizard’ machine. Just don’t let the music distract you.
