BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 12.7.11 - BISS Cocktail Party / Dragon Smoke / Metallica / BISS Presents Eric Mcfadden's Birthday Extravaganza!!

Happy BISS Cocktail Party Day!!! Yep, it's tonight, the BISS Holiday Cocktail party. Please come by the Fishbowl tonight between 7 & 11 and share some holiday cheer with the BISS Friends, Family & Crew! (That includes you!!) As a special treat, Elie Sasson, will be your celebrity guest bartender for the evening! Now you might be thinking, how can we have a BISS party without music? Well thankfully, this city is FULL of music so we are thinking that if we are sober enough to flag a cab, let's go get some NOLA funk with The Soul Rebels at the Boom Boom Room. (Though I totally understand if you got lucky enough to get a Metallica ticket and have to miss the party)

Tomorrow night, in the city, we are headed to see Fareed Haque & Math Games at Boom Boom Room. (*WIN) Though I know some of you are going to Trampled By Turtles at GAMH. And if you are in Santa Cruz, you are probably going to Dragon Smoke at Moe's. In the North bay you might be trying to decide between An Evening with Chris Robinson Brotherhood at the Mystic Theater and A Premiere Musical Evening with Multi Grammy- winning bassist Christian McBride and Friends- Featuring Special Guests Bob Weir, Rob Wasserman and Jay Lane, Dan Hicks, Lukas Nelson, Sara Wasserman and other Special Guests to Benefit the Children of Casa de Milagros at 142 Throckmorton.

Friday, is the night I got lucky enough to get my Metallica tickets for the 30th Anniversary celebration at The Fillmore so that's that! If by some chance, it gets out early enough I would head straight to Dragon Smoke at the Indy. But I heard Metallica played til 2am at the first of this 4 night run and hopefully they do THAT again. Thankfully, Boom Boom Room has a late night show with the California Honeydrops going til 3:15.

Other shows to note on Friday? Janes Addiction with Mumford & Son's (loved them at Bridge School) are playing in the east bay at the Oracle Arena. If you haven't seen Fela! yet, you can see the band, cast and crew perform at Brick & Mortar. Also Cryptical with Stu Allen is playing at George's in San Rafael.

Saturday night, there is only ONE show to be at and it is presented by BISS & phYne! It's Eric McFadden's Birthday Extravaganza at Café Du Nord. (*WIN) It's Eric's first gig in SF since July and will probably be his last gig in SF for a while. The night will feature many of Eric's amazing and talented & fine friends such as: Travis Kasperbauer, Pamela Parker, Jane Wiedlin (Go Gos), Jay Lane (Primus, Scaring the Children), Dale Fanning (Living Daylights, Materialized), Larry Boothroyd (Victim's Family), Jenny Kerr, Philbillie Milner, Gabby LaLa (Les Claypool), Justin Katz (Rosincoven), BB KinK (Shaunna Hall of George Clinton & P-Funk) and more! Plus Con Brio & Blind Willies. (*WIN Tickets) Come celebrate!!


Did you know that Chris Robinson is back in SF next week? He and his Brotherhood are at Great American from Monday through Thursday. (*WIN Monday)

New Years?! What are WE doing for New Years???! The BISS plan for the night is definitely The Greyboy Allstars featuring Fred Wesley performing West Coast Boogaloo in its entirety and other classics by GBA and the JB's. PLUS Zigaboo Modeliste and the New Aahkesstra. ** Open Bar included in the Price of Admission. What do we do for late night on New Years? That's easy, Boom Boom Room for Big Light, Lebo, & The SF Gramble.

What about the days leading up to NYE? How about Trombone Shorty at the Fillmore? You could even catch him twice on the 30th and the 31st!

There are so many more shows to talk about this month! But you will just have to wait and read next week. In the meantime, don't forget that we have the next month of shows listed below and as many as we can find on the Google calendar on www.bisslist.com.
