Wednesday Films: Jimi Plays Monterey & Shake! Otis at Monterey

Each Wednesday night we screen a music film, playing the audio through our very nice sound system. Diner by the Izakaya serves up hot ramen, and we’ve got high quality beers from the likes of Hudson Valley Brewing and Evil Twin at the bar. A little about the week’s film:

In 1967, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding arrived in California virtually unknown. Returning stateside from London, where he had moved to launch his music career, Hendrix exploded at Monterey, flooring an unsuspecting audience with his maniacal six-string pyrotechnics. Redding, a venerable star of Memphis’s Stax record label, seduced the crowd in one of his best—and last—performances. “Jimi Plays Monterey and Shake! Otis at Monterey,” features the entire sets of these legendary musicians. Filmed and edited by award-winning documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
