BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 3.31.11 - Galactic / Ivan Neville & Zigaboo / Wil Blades Galactic After Parties!!

Who's got the Funk? BISS listers have got the funk!!

GALACTIC takes over the Fillmore this weekend, with all kinds of special guests both nights including Corey Henry, Corey Glover, and Cyril Neville!! That's a math equation that could only = AWESOMENESS!

And where else would the after party be for these two Fillmore shows...? Right across the street at The Boom Boom Room!! WILL BLADES goes late night (starting 1:30am) both Friday and Saturday with special guests. Remember last year after Galactic at BBR when Charlie Tuna showed up to sit in and then George Clinton showed up the next night? Sunny says, "BE PREPARED PEEPS!!"

On Saturday, you might have to roll the funky dice to see where you land. But the BISS crew is gonna try to hit it all! We are going to start our night at The Indy to funk it up with the King of the Funky Drums, Zigaboo and the New Aahkesstra. Then we'll stick around to put it in the DUMSTA with Ivan Neville's Dumstaphunk! Then the crew divides to conquer Galactic at the Fillmore and Hot Buttered Rum at The Great American Music Hall with special guests including Lebo (Dan Lebowitz of ALO), James Nash (Waybacks) ....sugary and sweet and perfect for a Saturday night.

We know, we know it is oh so hard to live in this city by the bay...NOT.

San Francisco keeps it Funky, and the city keeps us BISSful....times 10
