Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966-1967)

Andy Warhol‘s lights engineer Danny Williams pioneered many innovations that have since become standard practice in rock music light shows. From May 27-29 the EPI played The Fillmore in San Francisco, where Williams built a light show including stroboscopes, slides and film projections onstage. At Bill Graham‘s request he was soon to come back and build more. Film maker Jonas Mekas(who pioneered film projections during concerts at New York’s Cinematheque), Andy Warhol and Danny Williams’ influential ideas contributed much to the legendary Fillmore Auditorium’s prestige and were also used at the Fillmore East and Fillmore West, both opening in 1968.
