Yeah, OK, they might not have many original members left. But Jefferson Starship put out a new EP this year called Mother of the Sun, and a single called “It’s About Time” which features the lines: “Old white men have had their turn,  Thousands of years what have we learned,  The hurricanes churn and the wild fires burn.  We’re mourning our sons they’re forging more guns.”

And then: “Children in cages, shot dead in school,  How long before we let women rule? It’s about time to listen to your mother,  Love one another care for each other.”

Who knew that we should be listening to Jefferson Starship in 2020? But we should. On Sunday, they’re performing two drive-in sets in Costa Mesa, so we can listen to it live.

Jefferson Starship play at 6 p.m. PT and 8:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, October 18 at the OC Fair & Event Center. Details here
