Over the course of nine studio albums released between 1968 and 1976, Steppenwolf helped bridge the gap between psychedelic rock and the earliest progenitors of heavy metal. Their greatest cultural contribution was when two songs from their 1968 self-titled debut album, both “Born to Be Wild” and “The Pusher,” were released as part of the Easy Rider film and soundtrack the following year. Blending musical styles, Steppenwolf often alternated between the escapist and hedonistic themes of the hit “Magic Carpet Ride” and increasingly politically charged material, such as the title track of 1969’s Monster. This current lineup features frontman John Kay leading longtime bandmates in delivering those Steppenwolf classics along with fan favorites “Sookie Sookie,” “Rock Me,” “Hoochie Coochie Man” and “Rock & Roll Rebels.” Also at the Libbey Bowl, Saturday, March 4.
