Can You See The Real Me?

I forgot to mention this yesterday, but July 22 is a significant date in my life. Nine years ago yesterday, I saw the Who in Minneapolis. It was my first-ever concert–and it would change my life:

I Am the Sea
The Real Me
Cut My Hair
The Punk Meets the Godfather
Dirty Jobs
Helpless Dancer
Is It In My Head?
I’ve Had Enough
Sea and Sand
Dr. Jimmy
The Rock
Love, Reign O’er Me
Won’t Get Fooled Again (acoustic)
Behind Blue Eyes
I Can’t Explain
Who Are You

Twenty-one songs, which cumulatively changed me as a person. I wouldn’t know it for a few more years–at the time I was still more-or-less interested in Broadway musicals–and it would take a few more concerts (namely Our Lady Peace and my first-ever Pearl Jam show) to reinforce it. But the seeds were definitely sewn that night in Minneapolis in 1997…and nine years later, as I eagerly anticipate seeing the Who two more times, it seemed like a good time to remember seeing them for the first time.
