Bill Graham… His Friends and his Enemies “Fillmore: The Last Days”
Date/TimeFriday, October 20 at 6:57pm
Legendary concert promoter Bill Graham brought together some of the biggest acts of the 60’s on through the 90’s, captured in action in the phenomenal concert film, Fillmore: The Last Days. Recorded at the Fillmore West in San Francisco from June 29 to July 4, 1971, the film contains performances by bands including Santana, the Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage. Come for the Fillmore lore; stay for the Quips & Clips. Please note: Content is subject to change without warning.
Rock ‘n roll fan and music lover Hale Milgrim is back with ANOTHER carefully-crafted a series of special evenings featuring rare concert footage and insider stories with some (OK, a lot) of help from his friends. Join Hale for a visual, musical journey over the last 50 years complete with his memorable insights, commentary and illumination. Or not.
Milgrim’s own musical journey started behind the counter at Isla Vista’s Discount Records, and has spiraled upward through a succession of positions at major record labels, leading eventually to a stint as the President/CEO of Capitol Records. Since returning to Santa Barbara with his wife Anne, he has continued to work and support local music (including Sings Like Hell), and hosted a Sunday radio show, “Go to Hale,” which aired for over six years on KTYD.
Shows begin at 6:57 PM sharp, which means doors open at 6:27 PM. Seating is general admission, so be sure to get here beginning at 6:03 PM on the Esplanade for pre-show refreshments, auction and memorabilia for sale, and other fun stuff from Lobero LIVE and KTYD. All proceeds benefit live music at the Lobero Theatre.
