The Mother Hips - Ultimate Setlist Show - live at cafe du nord 9/12/08

$ 9.99

SHOW REVIEW - CAFE DU NORD - SF 09.12.08
Courtesy of Jambase "This Friday was the prime example of why it is a good time to be a Mother Hips fan. The first word went out on the Mother Hips message board The Grotto months ago. The post was titled "Ultimate Setlist Show." The idea was that fans build their dream setlist and submit it to The Mother Hips. The band would then pick a setlist at random and play it in its entirety. There were few criteria: the list could not be more than 36 songs, it needed to be two sets and the band had to have played all of the songs in the show at least once over its near two decade long history. There was no real publicity, but word spread from The Grotto like the tendrils of a grapevine. Those of us that needed to be at the Café du Nord that night would get there. Fans that spanned the band's full history gathered and discussed the impressive possibilities of this "ultimate" idea. No matter whose list was chosen, it would be an epic show."
