Pro-Shot Video: The Mother Hips Share ‘It’s Alright’ From 2017 Holiday Show
Northern California rockers The Mother Hips are gearing up for the release of a new studio album Chorus on June 8 via Blue Rose Music. The Mother Hips selected the jangly “It’s Alright” as the LP’s lead single and recently unveiled professionally-shot video featuring a live version of the song.
Co-founding guitarist Tim Bluhm made his return to the stage with the group last December at a series of holiday shows in San Francisco for the first time in nearly a year. Bluhm had been sidelined due to injuries suffered during a paragliding accident. The Mother Hips played the historic Great American Music Hall on December 15 and 16 ahead of a matinee at Slim’s on December 17.
Watch the group perform “It’s Alright” at the Great American Music Hall on December 16 as recorded by Jay Blakesberg:
Bluhm and fellow co-founding The Mother Hips guitarist Greg Loiacono and drummer John Hofer were aided by Jackie Greene on bass for the recording of Chorus. The Mother Hips tapped Karl Derfler to produce the LP. Chorus is the group’s first new studio album since 2013 and comes in honor of their 25th anniversary. The Mother Hips will celebrate the release at a benefit for the Blue Rose Foundation that will be held at The Fillmore in San Francisco on June 9. Proceeds will go towards the foundation’s goal of providing preschool scholarships for financially disadvantaged children.
