Nik Turner's Hawkwind - Rhythm Room - 11/14/13

Hot damn. Last night the Rhythm Room was the vessel for a full-on, motherlovin' space jam starring Nik Turner's Hawkwind. Turner is one of the co-founders of Hawkwind, a band that formed at the end of the 1960's and helped to define the space rock sound.

Hawkwind is still an active band with another original member, Dave Brock, at the helm, while Turner tacks his own moniker to his version - - he has been doing so for years but expressed at the show that he'd love to play with Brock, also mentioning that he'd also like to add former member Lemmy - - Kilmister of Motorhead - - to that mix.
