Win A Ticket For Nik Turner of Hawkwind @ The Studio at Webster Hall – 9/11/2014

Poster - Nik Turner Hawkwind - The Studio - 2014

The Details: Truth be told I never followed Hawkwind during their original heyday based on my overall vintage but as I grew older surely learned to appreciate their offerings and several musicians of note that they helped launched the careers of. I was interested in seeing the current version of Hawkwind that was supposed to visit last year but was cancelled due to artist illness but when I learned about the appearance of their former member Nik Turner who would be delivering a set of their tunes at The Studio, I said to myself “Let’s attend this and even go one better by setting up a contest for tickets for his fans”. Yeah that is right, thanks to the promoters of Excess DB Entertainment, PiercingMetal is going to put a few lucky readers into this show which will be held at The Studio at Webster Hall as opposed to the originally scheduled Marlin Room. Read further down on how to participate.

  1. 1. For me personally Hawkwind is my absolute favorite of those space/psych rock bands. Space Ritual is more important to the development of my tastes in music than Pink Floyd or bands similar to that
    2. I went to the Nik Turner show last year at Saint Vitus and it was absolutely phenomenal
    3. The opening bands are solid, really looking forward to hearing some of these new Witch Mountain songs live from their upcoming album. Not to mention Hesersleben whom also opened last year (Likely because that band is also Nik Turners backing band)and was pleasantly awesome

  2. 1. Hawkwind IS the innovator of Space Rock and it would be interesting to hear what Nik Turner has to offer over 45 Years after the band was first launched after all he was one of the crucial members.
    2. Seeing Hawkwind in a Festival in Europe in 2004 was a major disappointment; only three guys on stage with a Lap Top providing the Sound Effects.
