Weeklong Seminar?


 THE WHO: Love, Reign o’er School




England’s University of Sussex is holding a weekend-long symposium on The Who’s Quadrophenia in July. Not only does this year mark the 50th anniversary of The Who, but it’s also the 50th anniversary of the Brighton Beach battle between the mods and the rockers that Pete Townshend wrote about in Quadrophenia.

The course, which runs from July 10th through the 12th, will take a look at the album and the film and will include discussions on “the Post-1960s Mod Diaspora” to “the sea and the scooter in Quadrophenia.” Townshend was invited, but is not expected to attend, though he sent a supportive e-mail.
