<i>Monterey Pop</i>

The Foundation


Past Event

Everyone's heard of Woodstock, but if there was any justice in the world, the Monterey Pop Music Festival would be uttered in the same breath. This legendary concert, which spanned three days during the Summer of Love, featured the talents of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Ravi Shankar, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding, among many others, and set the bar for virtually all rock gatherings to come. It was also photographed, in brilliant pop color, by a team headed by D.A. Pennebaker, who edited it into at least three reputable documentaries. The Aero screens the first and most famous of these, Monterey Pop, in a new 4K transfer, and it's a great way to kick the summer into high gear. Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave., Santa Monica; Fri., June 23, 7:30 p.m.; $12. (323) 466-3456, americancinemathequecalendar.com.
