And Saturday, we've got Karl D. @ The Fillmore (*Congrats to Christy **STILL Win Tickets!) followed by Honey Island Swamp Band @ Boom Boom Room. (**Win Tickets)

BISS has a new monthly event you are all going to love!! We all know that San Francisco is blessed with a wealth of extremely talented musicians. So 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 local band or a 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, 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! Guest performers from other venues in the city will be joining our local talent and you never know who will be sitting in to create a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.

So come out, support your local musicians, and help us Make a Scene at the Boom Boom Room! The first show, on February 17, will feature The Afrofunk Experience, dubbed "The Bay Area's Dance Kings", and recent winners of the NAACP Image Award's Outstanding World Music Album for "Black President". Plus High Beamz open the night featuring Eric Levy (Garaj Mahal) Cecil Pnut Daniels (WSP), Murph-bass (Izabella), Mo-Drums (sol rising) & Chris Zanardi/GTR (Five Eyed Hand)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW!!!! IF YOU LOVE MUSIC AS MUCH AS WE DO (AND WE KNOW YOU DO!), YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THE KICKOFF PARTY ON FEBRUARY 17 WITH THE AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE, HIGH BEAMZ, & SPECIAL GUESTS!!!!!
