They Built This City on Rock-n-Roll

Posted on Fri, Apr 28, 2006 at 4:00 AM

First, they were Jefferson Airplane, a hippy-trippy band that sang about Vietnam and free love. But things got all futuristic in the 1980s, and the airplane morphed into a spacecraft. They become known as Jefferson Starship, a pop group specializing in the now-missing art of the power ballad. They’re back, and nothing’s going stop them now. For a hefty sum ($250), you can see them at the Pyramid at a dinner and silent auction to benefit the American Cancer Society on Saturday, April 29th. Not a Starship fan? The money’s for a good cause, and it may be your last chance to see the Pyramid sans stuffed dead animals. For more info, go to the Flyer's searchable online calendar here.
