New Monsoon/Mother Hips Tour


Mother Hips in NYC
In a bit of happy synchronicity, New Monsoon and The Mother Hips will play a handful of shows together. This pair of San Francisco treats offers some of the highest-level musicianship and songwriting happening today, and both are well-loved, veteran live acts, too. Their first outing will be March 28th at Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, CA. This co-bill is currently set to play five dates together ending with a two-night run at the Mercury Lounge in New York. Rumor has it they are working on adding a show or two in Chicago as well. Each concert will feature a joint set at the end of the night.

Tour Dates
03.28 – Friday - Mystic Theater, Petaluma, CA – New Monsoon on first
04.10 – Thursday - Knitting Factory, Los Angeles, CA – Hips on first
04.11 - Friday - Belly Up, San Diego, CA - NM on first
05.02 - Friday - Mercury Lounge, NYC, NY - NM on first

i can't really complain about no music coming to the southeast, but i also can't remember the last time new monsoon came down round here. and that makes me sad, cause they kick a whole lotta ass.

I'm very sorry and sad to say, and please dont be mad at me but New Moonsoon is just not the same since raj land Brian left. Without the tabla and latin percussion, this band will never be the same.... but i will say that the show they did with Moe at the Warfield a year ago or so was one of the best shows I've ever seen.....

The Mother Hips are the best, one of the greatest bands today. Glad to see them finally making their way east.

Love the Hips, and have for many years. They are one of the true road warriors on the scene. It's time for them to get the props they deserve. Hopefully this will lead to bigger gigs for both bands.

I'll make some of these dates, I love The Hips and my wife and I had our bachelor/bachelorette parties at the New Monsoon w/Tim Carbon and Steve Kimock a couple years back. Hips are really good. I like New Monsoon a lot too.... last time I saw them though it felt like something was missing to me, I can't really put my finger on it. Not bad, just... I dunno hard to describe.
