Jefferson Starship - New York, NY - 2007-09-09

Jefferson Starship "Surrealistic Omnibus" at B.B. Kings in New York, NY, September 9, 2007.

I love going to see these guys - and haven't been in like ten years...Kantner starting touring again in the early '90s performing material from all different eras of his career: folk songs and sea chanteys, a wealth of stuff from the Airplane catalog, a lot of the songs from the early Jefferson Starship era and, most enjoyable to me, gems from the records put out under his and Grace's names.

This is not the Jefferson Starship you know and hate. Their early material was like an updated version of the Airplane for the 70s - incredible songwriting, amazing line-ups, etc.

The ticket price included a soundboard recording of the show which they are sending out soon. Stay tuned for the update...
