(((folkYEAH!))) Presents “The 2nd Annual Mother Hips Family Hipnic” @ Fernwood Resort in Big Sur, CA April 30 & May 1, 2010
(((folkYEAH!))) & The Mother Hips will be hosting the 2nd Annual Mother Hips Family Hipnic on April 30 & May 1 in Big Sur, CA. The event will take place at Fernwood Resort in Big Sur, CA over two days – April 30 & May 1, 2010. The other artists set to perform include Jackie Greene, Little Wings, Dawes, Neal Casal (The Cardinals), Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio), Elisa Randazzo (The Red Krayola), Parson Red Heads, Nicki Bluhm, Red Cortez, and Sparrow’s Gate.
The event was curated by both The Mother Hips, who will headline both nights, and (((folkYEAH!))) Presents. “The Hipnic is everything I like about music festivals; great acts, pristine surroundings and no crowds. This year the camping is on-site so it will be even better. It’s a beautiful place, a beautiful season, and a beautiful group of people.” says Tim Bluhm, Mother Hips front-man, singer-songwriter, and guitarist.
The Mother Hips are touring nationally (see dates below) behind their critically-acclaimed new studio album ‘Pacific Dust’ which has garnered rave reviews from the likes of MOJO Magazine
(4 Star review) and both SF Chronicle & Relix claiming “The Hips have created one of its best albums yet, with classic rock melodicism, inspired flow, and tasty riffs.”
Additionally, two songs from ‘Pacific Dust’ will be released this week on the popular Rock Band game as downloadable content to players.
