On New Year's Eve 1969, Jimi Hendrix's electronic blues trio, Band of Gypsys, played a legendarily funky concert at New York City's Fillmore East. Twelve disciples have gathered in the upper balcony to bear witness, as heat is brought to a nation caught in mid-winter chill. As "bullets fly like rain," at home and abroad, the ensemble movingly reimagines an iconic moment in rock and roll history through the timeless power of Hendrix's music. It's the end of the Sixties. And Jimi Hendrix's final New Year's Eve.
