Together for  one night, the documentary JANIS, LITTLE GIRL BLUE and directly after, BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY

Musician Cat Power narrates this documentary on Janis Joplin’s evolution into a star from letters that Joplin wrote over the years to her friends, family, and collaborators. Archival footage and interviews highlight the life and career of singer-songwriter Janis Joplin, from her musical rise in the 1960s to her battle with alcohol and heroin addiction.

Director: Amy Berg (as Amy J. Berg)

Big Brother & The Holding Company are primarily remembered as the group that gave Janis Joplin her start. There’s no denying both that Joplin was by far the band’s most striking asset, and that Big Brother would never have made a significant impression if they hadn’t been fortunate enough to add her to their lineup shortly after forming. But Big Brother also occupies a significant place in the history of San Francisco psychedelic rock, as one of the bands that best captured the era’s loosest, reckless, and indulgent qualities in its high-energy mutations of blues and folk-rock.

Today, BBHC is comprised of original members Dave Getz  & Peter Albin, accompanied by Tom Finch, Tommy Odetto & Darby Gould

The concert will begin shortly after the finish of the film.
