366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 260

The Date: June 16

The Movie: Monterey Pop (1968)

What Is It?: Perhaps the best multi-artist concert film, capturing rock at a more progressive phase than  The T.A.M.I. Show does but not as self-indulgent and dreary as Woodstock. The Who, Jimi, Otis, Janis, Jefferson Airplane, and Ravi all give transcendent performances. Don’t fast forward through Ravi! His raga rocks.

Why Today?: This day in 1967 is the first day of the three-day Monterey Pop Festival.
