The Mother Hips are finally coming back to Bend for their first show in town since 2011, at Volcanic Theatre Pub on Wednesday. The long-running, San Francisco folk-rock group canceled a 2016 performance at Volcanic Theatre Pub “due to reasons beyond our control,” according to a press release issued by the band at the time; frontman Tim Bluhm was also recovering from a paragliding accident that left his lower left leg and the right side of his pelvis broken. Bluhm addresses the accident and difficult recovery on the band’s first album in five years, “Chorus,” a meticulously crafted collection that finds space for acoustic ballads, raunchy riff-rockers and psychedelic country-folk.

The Mother Hips, with Lewi Longmire, AM Clouds: 8 p.m. Wednesday; $15 plus fees in advance, $18 at the door; Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Drive, Bend; volcanictheatre.com or 541-323-1881.
