Pier Six Pavilion
Jefferson Starship & Crack the Sky
Jefferson Starship is coming to the Pier Six Pavilion on Saturday 16th September for their Carry The Fire Tour named in honor of bandleader Paul Kantner, who died last January.
The band’s continued existence stands in tribute to Kantner — and former Jefferson Airplane/Starship singer Grace Slick, who granted the current lineup a lifetime license to use the Jefferson Starship name upon Kantner’s death.
For singer and multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg, the group’s continued activity is also a reflection of just how timely its classic songs remain — for better and for worse. “Here we are, now 50 years after the Summer of Love, for all the progress we’ve made as a society, watching the pendulum swing backwards, toward divisiveness devoid of compassion,” said Freiberg. “It’s more important than ever for us to keep playing, to keep that revolutionary spirit alive and, as Paul said, carry the fire, to shine light where there is darkness. It’s why we picked up guitars and started singing in the first place.”
