This year’s Family Hipnic marks its second installment, and is hosted again by (((folkYEAH!))) & The Mother Hips. The festival’s debut proved it an instant underground favorite. Additional artists set to perform in 2010 include Jackie Greene, Little Wings, Dawes, Neal Casal (The Cardinals), Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio), Elisa Randazzo (The Red Krayola), Parson Red Heads, Nicki Bluhm, Red Cortez, and Sparrow's Gate.

The Mother Hips have also announced their SXSW performance schedule, which includes the Hear Ya Day Party, the Monterey International Showcase, and others (full SXSW schedule below).

The Hips are touring nationally (see dates below) behind their critically-acclaimed new studio album 'Pacific Dust' which has garnered rave reviews from the likes of MOJO Magazine (4 Star review), while SF Chronicle & Relix have heralded the album as one of the band’s best albums yet, with “classic rock melodicism, inspired flow, and tasty riffs."

Look for two songs from 'Pacific Dust' to be released this week on the popular Rock Band game, as downloadable content to players.
