Nik Turner's Hawkwind

The space rock pioneers Hawkwind are considered to be a key link between hippie and punk cultures since their formation in 1969. Famed singer, composer, saxophonist and flutist Nik Turner fronts his version of the band as they celebrate the release of their new album Space Fusion Odyssey. They're never going to play with Lemmy, and forgive me Mr. Turner for dropping the Kilmister moniker, but this is a must-see for any ill-informed 20-something that believes that Diarrhea Planet or the Black Angels are the only psych bands around. $7-$10, 8pm, Korova, 107 E. Martin St., (210) 226-5070
