The Mother Hips - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Mother Hips
Twenty-five years into a celebrated career is an unlikely time to switch things up, but the “divinely inspired” (Rolling Stone) Mother Hips have never been ones to follow convention. For their brilliant and exhilarating tenth album, ‘Chorus,’ the California stalwarts turned their recording process on its head in order to make their most fully realized and essential collection yet.

Originally signed by Rick Rubin while still just students at Chico State, The Mother Hips have spent two-and-a-half decades at the forefront of a new breed of California rock and roll—one equally informed by the breezy harmonies of the Beach Boys, the funky roots of The Band, and the psychedelic Americana of Buffalo Springfield—and established themselves as “one of the Bay Area’s most beloved live outfits” (San Francisco Guardian) through countless headline shows, massive festival appearances, and dates with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes. The New Yorker lauded the band’s ability to “sing it sweet and play it dirty,” and ‘Chorus’ is perhaps the finest example yet of that intoxicating dichotomy, a richly melodic album firmly rooted in gritty rock and roll with the kind of evocative storytelling that The Mother Hips do best.

"Elements of Neil Young and Crazy Horse at their most wild and careening as well as Roky Erickson at his most focused...dashes of Harry Nilsson and Townes Van Zandt.
Those are unbeatable influences but then again, Courtney is an unbeatable force in his own right."
- PopMatters

Had “Loaded” (from the new album, Crazy Love) made its debut decades earlier, it might’ve become a country-rock anthem for the counterculture,
offering up a mix of hedonism, honky-tonk and ramshackle, roadhouse-worthy romp.
- Rolling Stone

After spending five years touring and recording two albums as the lead singer and songwriter of the Austin, TX band, Brothers And Sisters, Will Courtney decided to pack up and move back to Los Angeles...and then to Nashville...and then to a log cabin on some land in Dripping Springs, TX. Now, after several years of being based in Santa Fe, NM, where he produced albums for other artists and toured the US and Europe as a solo artist, he’s back in Austin with a new band and a new album, Crazy Love (Released September 21, 2018 on Super Secret Records).
