Field Trip: Mike Blum/Jackie Greene/The Mother Hips

Eth and I made a trip to Solana Beach to see Jackie Greene and others at the Belly Up last night. I've seen Greene a couple times in the past 18 months, and while those shows were excellent, after last night's show I'm about to add Greene to my "Bands I Want To Follow Around the Country In A VW Van" list. Mr Greene has made the transition from Dylan-esque singer songwriter to rock star to great effect. Awesome show.

Mike Blum opened. He has an excellent voice, but his set was standard bar band fare. The Mother Hips closed. Eth and I left after 4 songs. They have a loyal following, but after JG's performance they paled in comparison.
