BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 3.24.11 - Taj Mahal / Sheila E. / Come 'Make A Scene' with Boca Do Rio & Crackerjack Highway Tonight!

Let's get ready to RUMBLE BISS Listers!! Round Two of "BISS MAKE A SCENE" is here! This month the featured bands are Boca do Rio and Crackerjack Highway...with a crazy mash up third set. You never know who might show up to play! What you do know, is that The Boom Boom Room is going to be bumping TONIGHT!!


Friday, oh Friday...what to do on a Friday?...Well...How about Taj Mahal at The Independent? Or how about we go check out our very own Miss Andi White Solo at the Connecticut Yankee? And then how ' bout checking out the new SF venue, BRICK AND MORTAR MUSIC HALL (The old Coda) with Breakin Bread featuring Ryan Scott, Aaron Saul, Ian McDonald, Billy Frates, Myles O'Mahony and Lex Razon...And then, if you have some shake left in you, meet the crew at the Boom Boom Room for Zach Deputy (WIN)!

Though we KNOW that if you are in the North Bay on Friday, you must be headed to the Palms Ballroom in San Rafael for MARK KARAN & JEMIMAH PUDDLEDUCK!! **WIN**

If you are like the rest of the BISS crew who didn't get quite enough of Sheila E. when she was here with Prince, not to worry cause she has 2 shows this Saturday night at Yoshi's. And BISS has tickets for you to win for the 10pm show! You also have another chance to check out Brick & Mortar Music Hall on Saturday for the Ray Band! And The Boom Boom Room is invaded with local talent on Saturday night when Dan Lebowitz and Dave Brogan of ALO, Reed Mathis of Tea Leaf Green and Chris Velan of Mother Hips get together...and as per usual, the bbr always goes "late night" (be aware of glitter attacks...thank you Sunny).

Relax the weekend away on Monday night with free jazz in North Beach with Mike Olmos at Grant and Green and Joe Cohen at Mojito. Unless you are gonna just Hoop it all out ;-)!

What does the second round of "Make a Scene" mean? ...that a third round is only a month away...Mark your calendar for April 21st for the next Make A Scene featuring Atomatronic & Five Eyed Hand!

BISS Listers know how to Rumble....
