During the summer of 1967, San Francisco’s Fillmore rock impresario Bill Graham hired artist Joshua White to create a light show for a series of concerts in Toronto featuring the Jefferson Airplane. Because Graham needed to sell all of the theater’s tickets, the lightshow could not occupy the balcony normally inhabited by a typical Bay Area lightshow. At Graham’s challenge, White designed a system where projections would be performed from the stage, behind a giant screen. This experience led to the formation of the Joshua Light Show.
