'Annual SummerStage Gala Honoring the Music of Jimi Hendrix'
For those who wonder what happened to the purple haze machine gun Electric Ladyland and can't just ask the axis, it died in 1970 with Jimi Hendrix. But Hendrix lives on, beyond history and beyond category. His kaleidoscopic vision influenced practically everyone, transcending genre and causing a seismic shift in what rock could mean. Here, the Roots, Soulive, G. Love & Special Sauce, Bebel Gilberto, Amel Larrieux, and others prove that point and officially kick off the SummerStage season.
