The Hear and Now - Powell St. John and his band live in the KPFA performance studio.

Before he celebrates the release of his new CD, On My Way to Houston (Tompkins Square), at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse next Tuesday night (Aug. 4), Texas/Berkeley legend Powell St. John brings his band, the Aliens, into the KPFA studio for rousing electric and acoustic sets. Best known in Bay Area music history as a founding member of Mother Earth (with Tracy Nelson) and the composer of "Living With the Animals," "Marvel Group," "The Fly," and other psychedelic-tinged folk-R&B classics), St. John is powerful singer and harmonica player--and a 2005 inductee into the Texas Music Hall of Fame--whose career has crossed paths with Janis Joplin, Boz Scaggs, Roky Erickson, the 13th Floor Elevators, and Doug Sahm.
