Virtual – Jefferson Airplane: A Deep Dive

Neighborhood: Virtual Tour

Description

In 1967, the year of the Summer of Love, Jefferson Airplane was the San Francisco hippie community’s best known band. Their release that year of “Surrealistic Pillow” rocketed them to international fame, and they would go on to play all the major 1960s rock festivals: Monterey Pop, Woodstock and the ill-fated Altamont.

This Zoom presentation includes video at each of those events as well as at San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium and on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. We’ll talk about their roots in folk music and how a key personnel change spurred them to great success. In just 5 years, they released 5 classic albums and were harbingers of what came to be called “The San Francisco Sound.”
