BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 11.11.10 - Great American Taxi / Charles Neville / Monophonics / Jazz Mafia / SCORPIO MADNESS!

We finally recovered from Halloween, just in time for some Scorpio madness this weekend! We are celebrating all our Scorpio peeps this Saturday with the Monophonics at the Boom Boom Room just back from their first LA tour!! Happy Birthday to the Red Hot Mama & to Bo, plus Cecy, Kelsea, Colleen, Elizabeth, Phaedra, Jodi, RonKat, Casey and the rest of you determined, forceful, emotional, intuitive, powerful & passionate Scorpios!!

Tonight is Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty band at the Boom Boom Room. Bring the FUNK! Congrats to Mary!

Friday night the BISS crew is hitting up Coda for Charles Neville (saxophonist of the Neville Brothers) &Yousoupha Sidibe with The Mystic Rhythms Band @ Coda. (*Congrats to Dennis M) You can also catch a repeat performance of this show on Saturday night @ Coda! *(Congrats to Emily D)

Another birthday celebration of sorts on Saturday night, is the Jazz Mafia 10 Year Anniversary featuring: Latyrx! (Lyrics Born and Lateef) Realistic Orchestra, Shotgun Wedding Quintet, *Spaceheater's Blast Furnace, Joe Bagale, Crystal Monee Hall at Mezzanine. (**WIN TICKETS!!)

This week also has quite a twang to it...a blue grass twang that is. Though we like to think of it as "dirty grass". Tonight is Great American Taxi (featuring Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon) and David Nelson Band @ Ashkenaz. Congrats to Mike J! Also catch Great American Taxi in the city @ The Boom Boom Room on Friday night. (**WIN) Want more Leftover Salmon? Maybe with a side of String Cheese? Then don't miss Emmitt-Nershi Band (featuring Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon & Bill Nershi of String Cheese) plus Hot Buttered Rum on Friday night at the Independent. Sounds tasty!

The BISS team checked out the Rent Party Tuesdays this past week at Coda. It was a great jazz jam session plus $5 specials on food and drink! Some impressive young talent came through! This coming week will be hosted by BISS favorite, Joe Cohen!
