BISS 3.3.11 - Drive By Truckers / Zigaboo / Zero / Greensky Blue Grass / Nat Keefe / Staxx Brothers

Hey hey BISS listers.....Are you spinning? And spinning & spinning....PUT THE HOOLA HOOP down for just a minute and lets get this week rolling...

Tonight, Thurday, Robin Tower is at the Filllmore then head over to our favorite late night dance floor, the Boom Boom Room, for Heart Touch featuring KENO MAPP plus Broun Fellinis (WIN TICKETS).


Now on Friday and Saturday..well, the BISS crew will be lapping a 12 block radius...totally. ZERO with Steve Kimock is playing at the GREAT AMERICAN MUSIC HALL. If you aren't headed to Zero start chugging the whiskey now because DRIVE BY TRUCKERS have a two night run at The Fillmore.....yummy...apples and whiskey (WIN TICKETS)!

Friday and Saturday THE STAXX BROTHERS are playing at the Boom Boom Room. Sunny gives these funky kids a "smells good". Any band that introduces themselves as a "Puerto Riccan Jim Morrison"...you know the show is going to be good.

Saturday night, the BISS crew is split between the city and East Bay. In the city, ZIGABOO MODELISTE (King of the Funky Drums) is kicking off Mardi Gras proper style at Café Du Nord (WIN TICKETS) with a Mardi Gras Costume Party!! Plus Kofy Brown opens. But some will be in the East Bay for TREY ANASTASIO (SOLD OUT) at the FOX THEATHER in Oakland.

Sunday...bring it back home for the Badness...a tribute to Chad Kelley will be at Mojito in North Beach from 2p to 2a.

All of this will keep you stretched and ready for MEDESKI, MARTIN & WOOD's 2 night run at THE INDEPENDENT on Wednesday and Thursday. Congrats to Heather N!

Have you marked down the next MAKE A SCENE show?...why not? The next MAKE A SCENE is only 3 weeks away...March 24th with Crackerjack Highway and another amazing set of sit-ins! Mark your calendars and while you are at it, Mark it for the next one on April 21st with Atomatronic & 5 Eyed Hand!!
