Ace of Cups, the all-female psychedelic rock band from the 1960s San Francisco scene, has announced a series of summer concert dates. The band's first tour in over 50 years - and their first ever as headliners - includes opening the 50th Anniversary of the historic Oregon Country Fair, the Kate Wolf Music
Festival, the Venice Beach Music
Fest, and many more. Tour dates are below.
The legendary band released their self-titled debut album via High Moon Records late last year to widespread critical acclaim, including features on NPR All Things Considered and CBS This Morning. The album was produced by Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Santana, Jennifer Lopez) and features contributions from long-time friends of the band, including Bob Weir
(Grateful Dead), Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), Taj Mahal, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Peter
Coyote, and Steve Kimock.

From 1967 to 1970, Ace of Cups - Mary Gannon (Bass), Marla Hunt (Organ, Piano), Denise Kaufman (Guitar, Harmonica), Mary Ellen
Simpson (Lead Guitar) and Diane
Vitalich (Drums) - were at the epicenter of the '60s cultural and social revolution. From the Acid Tests to the protests, from the free concerts in Golden Gate Park to the ballrooms of San Francisco, they shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead.
Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, Ace of Cups never got the chance to make their own album… until now. What started out as a chance to set the record straight has become a history-making second act that hits concert stages this Summer!
