ROCK | Nik Turner's Hawkwind 

During his tenure in Hawkwind, Lemmy Kilmister penned the tune "Motorhead" before getting booted out of the band to form Motorhead. Riding the fringes of experimental music when the band began in 1969, Hawkwind referred to its music — a heady, jammed-out, psychedelic mix of heavy rock and synthetic passages — as space rock. Saxophonist Nik turner joined Hawkwind in 1969 and was in the group on and off throughout its career. He leads the charge today.

Hawkwind plays with Hedersleben, Hot Mayonnaise, The Temptators, and Tapehead on Wednesday, November 25, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $10-$12.;
