BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 2.10.11 - Trombone Shorty / Karl Denson / Voice of The Wetlands / Ghosts of Electricty / Love is Dead? / Happy Valentine's Day!

How is it possible that the music just keeps on getting better and better? This weekend, we are filled with the funk, the horns and the swamp. And what could be better than that?

We start tonight with Afrofunk Experience playing Maceo at Amnesia and end up at Boom Boom Room for AMENDOLA vs BLADES.

Friday, BISS favorites, MONOPHONICS are playing at the Rickshaw with CAMBO & The Life at the Heartbreakers Ball, TROMBONE SHORTY is SOLD OUT at the Fillmore and right across the street is Vinyl at the Boom Boom Room.(**WIN) Across town is our girl, Audio Angel is with Franco Nero and downtown, is Meat Beat Manifesto. (**WIN & Congrats to Trish!)

Don't forget to wear your PINK on Friday night so you can be cosmic!!

We hope you all have gotten sleep this week because Saturday is just as good as Friday and we find ourselves again in the Fillmore district for KARL DENSON'S TINY UNIVERSE at the Fillmore (**Congrats to Christy, Jamie, Kimberly, & Gina!). And then THE HONEY ISLAND SWAMP BAND (**WIN) is at the Boom Boom Room to finish up the night with some fire on the bayou.

Who can catch all those shows? ...The BISS crew can.

Our BISS hearts go out to STS9.....the show is canceled due to illness....while we are all out jamming this weekend let's send them some healing thoughts.

Could it be possible that Sunday is just as good as Friday & Saturday, if not better? No rest for the die hards with this lineup in town! VOICE OF THE WETLANDS with Tab Benoit, Anders Osborne, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Jumpin' Johnny Sansone, Waylon Thibodeaux & Johnny Vidacovich is at the GAMH. Save the Wetlands by supporting VOW & Bay for the Bayou!! Ghosts of Electricty will be lighting it up at The New Parrish!! (**WIN) KY-MANI MARLEY (**WIN) is skanking at the Independent while RONKAT'S KATDELIC will be getting sexy and katty at the SupperClub . JIMMY LESLIE'S REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM is at the Boom Boom Room...And don't forget FREE jazz at that sexy club 50 MASON.

You should all feel pretty BISSful by then!! And then its Monday....HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Whether you've got a sweetheart or not, treat your heart right with some good old fashioned music with Biss Artists, GABBY LALA, ERIC MCFADDEN & PAMELA PARKER are at the Boom Boom Room.... And don't forget about double FREE jazz in north beach with Mike Olmos @ Grant & Green and Joe Cohen @ Mojito.

Then rest up so you can be ready to go again for Thursday night's debut of Biss Entertainment Presents: Make A Scene!! with Afrofunk Experience & High Beamz @ The Boom Boom Room on Feb 17th!!

What is "Make A Scene"? San Francisco is blessed with a wealth of extremely talented musicians and now, BISS Entertainment is going to bring the best of SF local talent together in a music showcase at the place where many musicians get their start, the Boom Boom Room. Once a month, BISS will host "Make a Scene", where the night will begin with either an up and coming band or super group of major players, followed by an established local favorite as ...the headliner. The third set of the night will be hosted by the headliner of each event, with a bevy of local guest musicians joining the stage for a mind bending, face melting consortium of SF's best performers rocking until the wee hours of the night. You do not want to miss these shows!
