Hendrix Homage at the Rock Hall

More than 30 years after his death, Jimi Hendrix's performances with Band of Gypsys remain the stuff of legend. You'll never catch them in concert. But tonight you can catch the next-best thing: a screening of the 1999 flick Jimi Hendrix: Band of Gypsys, featuring the group's only known concert footage. Besides the music — including performances of "Foxy Lady" and "Machine Gun" — the film includes Slash, Lenny Kravitz, and Vernon Reid speaking about the impact of Hendrix's revolutionary blend of rock and funk on the contemporary music scene. Insiders Don Cornelius and Frankie Crocker will outline the hurdles Hendrix faced for acceptance on radio, television, and with his emerging black audience. The 83-minute film begins at 7 p.m. in the Rock Hall's state-of-the-art Foster Theater. Admission is free, but reservations are required at 216-515-8426 or by e-mail at [email protected]. The flick is part of a series of music films marking Black History Month at the Rock Hall; others are scheduled for February 23 and 25. For details, go to rockhall.com. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is at 1100 Rock and Roll Blvd. — Cicora
