1967/06/20-24 - Fillmore West - San Francisco, California - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Seeing the performance at Monterey Pop, Bill Graham, owner of many concerts venues spread about the U.S, signed The EXP. to 4 days of gigs with the Jefferson Airplane. The EXP. was to open up for the Jefferson Airplane on the 4 days of shows. On the first night, Jimi and crew blew out the minds of the audience and played so well, the Jefferson Airplane refused to go on after them. Not much is really known of the contents of the shows, as there is no recording, pictures (to my knowledge), or film. It is known that these gigs were crucial to setting up the EXP as major acts in San Francisco, and when you can stand up the Jefferson Airplane, you can play!
