Mother Hips

The Sacramento Bee: With New Album Out, Chico’s Mother Hips Brings Its Americana-Driven Rock ‘n’ Roll to Harlow’s

Mother Hips
Rock/pop/‘California Soul’
9 p.m., Dec. 28 & 29

Chico native Mother Hips (anchored since the ‘90s by the bulletproof songwriting duo of Tim Bluhm and Greg Loiacono) are the most preciously rare breed of band. With a theoretical “breakout/next big thing” potential seemingly swirling overhead for two-plus decades, they never seemed to bother to try and grasp wildly at it - and their rabid fan base is always there to remind them that they don’t need to. They just dished up their first album of new material, “Chorus,” in five years, and it fits right in with their robust Americana-driven brand of soul-charged rock ‘n’ roll. The upstart Coffis Brothers open on Friday, with local mainstay Golden Cadillacs opening Saturday. $25 adv./$30 door.
