BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 1.13.11 - Family Stone / Five Eyed Hand / Cast of Clowns / Budos Band / Cowboy Mouth / Eric McFadden & Ed Ivey

As another week of epic music leaves us, more bootie shakin' beats grace our presence.

Tonight, we start our night in the city with the FAMILY STONE @ Yoshi's SF, (Congrats to Robert) then over to Seconds on End + Five Eyed Hand @ Milk Bar.(Congrats to Mike J) It's pretty likely we will then head to the Boom Boom Room for Better Than Lahar. (WIN)

The east bay BISS crew, is heading to CAST OF CLOWNS (WIN) featuring Melvin Seals, Stu Allen, Greg Anton & Robin Sylvester at the New Parish. Though I heard the crew might stop by Yoshi's in Oakland for the second night of David Grisman and Martin Taylor. (Congrats to George D for last night's show)

Friday night, we gotta get to Public Enemy with a live band @ Yoshi's SF. Saturday night, we've got Budos Band at The Indy (Congrats to Gina M!) and at the Fox Oakand is Rebelution plus Orgone opens. Then Amendola vs. Blades at the Boom Boom Room to close the night. (*WIN) Then on Sunday, (yes, another Sunday of live music you can't resist) it's a second night of Budos Band plus BISS artist, Monophonics opening. AND on Sunday is COWBOY MOUTH (*WIN) at Slim's!! Monday night, the 17th, come check out this swanky little downtown spot, 50 Mason Social House, for Eric McFadden & Ed Ivey. The BISS crew just won't let the weekend end!

Next week, won't be any exception to the trend of live music on Sundays. It's the first BISS night of 2011 on Sunday, January 23rd, featuring Kyle Hunt & The King Gypsy at The Boom Boom Room! (No Cover) These guys are a new BISS favorite you MUST check out!! They are from So Cal so get out there and check em out live so we can bring them back!! http://www.reverbnation.com/kylehuntandthekinggypsy
