The Mother Hips Perform Rolling Stones Album In Its Entirety At Troubadour
Northern California jam scene veterans The Mother Hips made good on a promise to perform an album by a “legendary rock n’ roll band” on Friday, when they played the Rolling Stones’ landmark 1969 album Let It Bleed in its entirety including such classics as “Monkey Man,” “Let It Bleed” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at The Troubadour in West Hollywood.
The Mother Hips covered the Stones album as their first set at The Troubadour before delivering a bevy of originals from throughout their career including “Rich Little Girl,” “Gold Plated” and “Smoke” as the second set. Tim Bluhm & Co. were joined by special guests Scheila Gonzalez (sax/vocals) and Jason Crosby (keys/fiddle) for the duration of the evening. Check out a handful of fan-shot videos from the show below.
This weekend, The Mother Hips play two nights at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael.
