BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 4.21.11 - MAKE A SCENE TONIGHT!! / Radiators Farewell Tour / Robert Plant / Yonder Mountain / Zigaboo / JGB

Are the BISS Listers still in a haze from celbrating 4:20 with Chris Robinson or The Radiators? Yeah? Well then, there is only one thing to do......KEEP GOING PEEPS...

What better way to keep it going then to MAKE A SCENE tonight at the Boom Boom Room featuring Five Eyed Hand, Atomatronic and a plethora of local talent. And if we are lucky maybe some visiting talent.. (hmmmm....who is in town we could invite?...) Celebrate San Francisco music at its finest. Make a Scene is a reflection of all that is great in this city's music scene.

Some of you may not need to read any further because you are going to the next three nights of the Farewell tour for The Radiators at the Great American Music Hall. (yes, you can do the Rads and still catch plenty of Make A Scene tonight.)

But as you know, some of us BISS crew tend to mix it up as much as we can. So....

Friday night, we are hitting our first show of the season at the Greek theater in Berkeley with Robert Plant plus North Mississippi All-stars opening!! Those are stairs we would all climb to heaven!

We head straight back to the city from Berkeley to see the KING of the Funky Drums (and BISS favorite), ZigabooModeliste & the New Ahkestra playing at the Brick & Mortar. (**WIN & Congrats to Chris L!)

Though I hear some of the crew will be staying in the east bay after Robert Plant to catch some JGB at The New Parrish. (*WIN)

We also heard a large crew of you is spending at least one of the 2 nights with YONDER MOUNTAIN at the Fillmore too.

Congrats to all the winners!!

With all of that it looks like Saturday will be some of our night for the Radiators though that could make it very difficult to also be at GARAGE A TROIS at the Independent on Saturday...but the BISS crew can work it out.

And of course we all meet at the end of the night at The Boom Boom Room for McTuff & Eric McFadden Trio both Friday and Saturday! Get there before 2am and get those doubles poured. It's going late!!!

Well that's just about as much music as possible in one weekend...but that's the BISS way to be!!

Sunny says..."The livin is easy....when you're a BISS girl...times 10!!"

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!!
