John Sinclair plays record release show this Wednesday at PJ's


  • John Sinclair from the cover of 'Creem.'
The author, poet and activist John Sinclair celebrates the release of his new album of spoken word with music, Mobile Homeland, this Wednesday, Nov. 8 with an early-ish show atPJ's Lager House. Produced by the legendary Tino G (who also performs), the album is a joint release between Funky D and Jett Plastic.

As surely we all know by now, Sinclair (born in Flint, Mich. in 1941) morphed spectacularly from a small-town teenage disc jockey to a cultural revolutionary, a pioneer of marijuana activism, a radical leader and a political prisoner towards the end of the 1960s.
