A Fillmore Happening: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Fillmore East
Fifty years ago, on March 8, 1968, the Fillmore East opened its doors and changed the city and the music world. The Fillmore is remembered with great affection by artists, employees, and concertgoers alike as a place of warmth, spirit, innovation, and the finest music. The great Bill Graham brought performers including The Doors, B.B. King, Tina Turner, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd, and many more.
Join us for a celebration of the three years that the Fillmore East defined the music scene, with master of ceremonies Rolling Stone music critic Anthony DeCurtis along with Joshua White of Joshua’s Light Show, booking agent Jonny Podell, photographer Elliott Landy and photogropher and Fillmore employee Amalie Rothschild. With them, we will enjoy, celebrate, and remember.
Visit the William Barnacle Tavern before or after the event for a drink or a Feltman’s hot dog.
This event is fully accessible.
