CalArts Center for New Performance invites you to a special preview performance of The Hendrix Project
, conceived and directed by Roger Guenveur Smith, in advance of its world premiere at the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival in January 2018. Developed in cooperation with Experience Hendrix, LLC.
New Year’s Eve 1969: Twelve disciples have gathered in the upper balcony of New York City’s Fillmore East to see Jimi Hendrix’s electronic blues trio, Band of Gypsys, play a legendarily funky concert. As “bullets fly like rain,” at home and abroad, the ensemble movingly reimagines an iconic moment in rock and roll history through the timeless power of Hendrix’s music. It’s the end of the Sixties. And Jimi Hendrix’s final New Year’s Eve.
Seating is first come, first served.
