BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 4.14.11 - Maceo Parker / Ronkat / Orgone / Chris Robinson / Make A Scene Next Thursday!

Ladies, Gentleman, & BISS Listers, please fasten your seatbelts & keep your arm's & legs inside the vehicle because this next week is gonna be quite a rollercoaster ride.

We start tonight, Thursday, with a dip, a turn, and a dive for CLUSTERFUNK at the Boom Boom Room featuring members of Vinyl. Congrats and Happy Birthday to Tiffany!!

Friday night, ride the loop with MACEOOOOOOOOO PARKER at Yoshi's (Congrats to Tamura & Robert!) and come back for another go 'round Sunday!

Twist and turn to RONKAT SPEARMAN'S KATDELIC on Friday at the Boom Boom Room...there will be some apple bottoms there for sure. (*WIN TICKETS) Or ride the rapids through the bay to San Rafael and scream for JACKIE GREENE on Friday at The Palms.

Saturday, at the Independent, ORGONE will have you putting your hands up in the air as the floor drops out beneath you! (Congrats to Heather!)...But wait the ride is not over yet...another steep banking turn into DURAN DURAN at the Fillmore on Saturday...good thing we are all locked in tight!!

Now we accelerate in reverse from 0 to 104 mph for Chris Robinson's Brotherhood SOLD OUT at Cafe du Nord on Monday night....and then it's time for space mountain...Board your rocket for JANET JACKSON on Tuesday and Wednesday night at the Civic Center. Also on Tuesday, is Bomba Estéreo & Bayonics at The Independent. (*WIN TICKETS) And VICTOR WOOTEN BAND @ Yoshi's in Oakland. (*WIN TICKETS)

And that brings us to 4.20...We're almost to the end of the ride but we still want more... like Chris Robinson @ The New Parrish (SOLD OUT), CYPRESS HILL at the Warfield, or THE RADIATORS starting a 3 night run at the Great American Music Hall... (You still have more chances to catch Chris Robinson @ TNP on 5/5 & 5/19!!)

Then it's a 360-degree vertical loop & one more climb before the last drop into the Boom Boom Room on Thursday, April 21st for BISS Make A Scene with ATOMATRONIC and FIVE EYED HAND!!

What perfect way to end a crazy ride!! Can we go again?

...Well we can certainly Make A Scene again...

On May 19th with Mama's Cookin & Sean Leahy Trio featuring Sean Leahy, Reed Mathis, & Dave Brogan, plus an amazing third set ,kicking off with M80 Mailbox and launching into the jammin sit-in set you have come to expect when we all MAKE A SCENE!!
