Nik Turner’s Hawkwind

Why is it being promoted as Nik Turner’s Hawkwind, you ask? Well, like a depressingly large number of rock ’n’ roll survivors, Turner is feuding with the other members of his old outfit over who owns the name, so it’s Nik Turner’s Hawkwind, and not Dave Brock’s or Tim Blake’s or Lemmy’s Hawkwind. All that ugliness aside, though, it’s a good time to be a grand old man of space-rock, the genre being invigorated by a whole new generation of stoned youngsters into its heavy, wandering sounds, and Turner has assembled a pretty cracking band (including members of veteran punk crews like Chelsea, Die Krupps and UK Subs) to play on and tour behind his new epic, Space Gypsy. Give Turner a shot: his sax still brings the noise, and it doesn’t look like he and the rest of the boys will be burying the hatchet anytime soon. $10, 8pm Monday, The Ten Eleven, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 320-9080, theteneleven.com. —Leonard Pierce
