Grandmas Rock Out

May 30, 2019 05:18PM
Back in the 1960s, Haight Ashbury was home to an all-women rock band called Ace of Cups. The group shared the stage with The Band and the Grateful Dead, and its guitarist even won kudos from Jimi Hendrix, but it never got a record deal. Until now. While promoting its eponymous new disc, the band will be performing at the Kate Wolf Festival at Black Oak Ranch in Laytonville. The festival lineup also includes Kris Kristofferson, Los Lobos, Booker T’s Stax Revue, Ruthie Foster, and Eliza Gilkyson. The festival runs June 27–30; tickets are $40–$330 and may be purchased at
