BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 1.20.11 - Papa Grows Funk / Pimps of Joytime / Planet Booty & Audio Angel / Bayonics / Katdelic / Afrofunk Experience / BISS Night with Kyle Hunt

Hello BISS LISTERS!! Can you feel it? Its a rumble...its a grumble....no wait.....its just the city pulsing because of all the good music coming to town this week. This city doesn't even know what to do to keep track! HEY 415....you should sign up for the BISS LIST! We can help you hang....or at least ride this wave out in proper fashion.

Where, oh where, do we begin? How 'bout with some roots? Roots reggae that is! THE WAILERS are preforming "Uprising" at the INDEPENDENT tonight. Get out and get down. Forrest, our BISS LIST ticket winner will be there. And so will the BISS crew.

Speaking of the BISS crew, who saw our outing on Monday at 50 Mason with Eric McFadden & Ed Ivey, when all the ladies had our BISS SHIRTS on? Sexy! Almost as sexy as 50 Mason Social House!

Friday, the BISS CREW is going to be running all over town because we have bands from the B.E. roster EVERYWHERE!! We hope to see you all at one or all these shows. (A true BISS LISTER...can do it all...or at least try to come close.) We'll start out early so we can catch BISS Artist, All of a Sudden opening for Papa Grows Funk at Great American Music Hall. (**Congrats to Andi W!) then off to Cafe Du Nord for PLANET BOOTY with special guest Biss Artist AUDIO ANGEL, then we head over to catch BISS Artist, Bayonics @ Elbo Room (**Congrats to Lisa & Erick! AND you can still *WIN TICKETS) There is only one place that ever promises to go late and that's The Boom Boom Room where we will be walking toward the one and getting totally funked out with Biss Artist, KATDELIC [of 'P FUNK ALLSTARS']. Get your cat ears on, or *WIN TICKETS, and get on the prowl...MEOW.

But, of course, it doesn't stop there, on both Friday AND Saturday night, THE PIMPS OF JOYTIME are playing at the INDEPENDENT (PLUS BISS favorite THE STAXX brothers are opening on Friday....and we hear that there might be a special guest on Saturday) You know the crew will be there.

On Saturday after the pimpin' show, head over to the BOOM BOOM ROOM for the AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE. (**WIN TICKETS) and just hang there because on Sunday its...BISS NIGHT WITH KYLE HUNT AND THE KING GYPSY!! Get out and support BISS! Plus its FREE......why would you not show up? (Totally!)

Need a day to rest? What does that mean? Must mean awesome JAZZ in north beach every Monday..between MIKE OLMOS at GRANT & GREEN and JOE COHEN at MOJITO. You can rest by going to 2 shows within a half of a block of each other. That's taking an easy night for the BISS crew. (Both free shows)

Who loves music? We do, we do!

And remember if you see a BISS shirt around town...take a picture of the BISS List logo on the back and post/email it with the band & venue. Its another way to WIN TICKETS...and to meet our fabulous crew...
