It’s been 40 years since “they gave him ten for two” and John Sinclair hit the national spotlight as the poster boy for the turbulent generational rift between Nixon era government and rock n’ roll rebellion.

As a part of the celebration on the 9th, there will be a special concert at The Ark by the Commander Cody Band with a guest appearance by John Sinclair & Beatnik Youth. The concert starts at 8pm and is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more Freeing John Sinclair events check www.aadl.org in the weeks to come for updates.
