BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 3.17.11 - BISS Me, I'm Irish St. Patricks Day Party tonight!! New Mastersounds Friday & Saturday!!

It's the yearly BISS Wearing O' The Green!!! Come join in the St Patty's Day fun tonight with the BISS crew at the BISS ME, I'M IRISH!! St Patrick's Day Party at CAFE DU NORD...featuring La Gente, Ziva, Anita Lofton Project, & Cassandra Farrar + The Left Brains!! Get down to great music all night long!! (No, none of it is Irish) Sunny says she might have to bust out in an Irish jig and she's super excited to pinch everyone who doesn't have green on!!

Now you better recover quickly from the green beer and Irish Whiskey cause the weekend is only just beginning. Thank goodness that the funk will keep you alive!! Friday and Saturday night, THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS invade THE INDEPENDENT. Congrats to Phaedra who waited for just the perfect show to cash in her raffle prize from The BISS Silver Ball!!! If you have not seen them yet, the BISS CREW declares it a necessity in life and we demand that you go see them!! What are you waiting for? These shows are going to be SICK!! The BISS CREW will be out celebrating in full force with our dear friend Lisa C who we have missed while she was away down under! Happy Birthday Miss Lisa C!!!

Now where oh where, is a BISSer suppose to go for the after party? .....THE BOOM BOOM ROOM of course. On Friday night, RONKAT'S KATDELIC (*WIN) performs late into the night with the famous Sugar Booty Dancers, (including our very own Miss Apple) keeping the funk going from the NEW MASTERSOUNDS. Saturday, long time BISS favorite, MONOPHONICS (*WIN) take it late night. The Boom Boom Room is sure to be packed til the weeee hours of the morning.....as it should be...take us away horns..please. Also on Saturday the ERIC MCFADDEN TRIO (*WIN) tears up Cafe Du Nord.....seatbelts on.

What else is going on this weekend? On Friday, don't forget about Devo @ The Warfield (*Congrats to Natasha!) AND Funk Revival Orchestra with The Yung Mars Project and 40 Watt Hype (Love those guys!) @ The Elbo Room. (*WIN) Not to mention, All OF A SUDDEN at Hotel Utah!

Don't forget about some free shows this week, including the Sunday Night Jam sessions at 50 MASON SOCIAL HOUSE. On Monday we have North Beach's free jazz with MIKE OLMOS at Grant and Green & the JOE COHEN TRIO at Mojito.

What is all this getting you primed for, you ask??!! BISS NIGHT!! MAKE A SCENE next Thursday at The Boom Boom Room featuring Boca Do Rio & Crackerjack Highway plus a third set of amazing sit-ins. "Make A Scene" is a celebration of local artists colaborating with each other for wonderful nights of music once a month at the Boom Boom Room. (plus a reeeeaaaly cool limited edition poster)

"And while the Funk will keep you alive, THE BISS LIST will take you there." (thanks Sunny)

You'll have to check the calendar below or wait until next week's BISS to hear about next weekend.
