BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 1.26.12 - Pimps of Joytime / Stanley Clarke / Robert Walter / Dead Winter Carpenters / Chum & The Eleven

Don't call the Fire Department BISS Listers!! That's not a fire causing all that smoke...it is some hot as hell music coming to the Bay Area this weekend! So get out of bed, slide down the pole, get all geared up and let's start getting steamy...


Tonight we warm up the old organ at the Boom Boom Room with WIL BLADES, SIMON LOTT, ADAM THEIS & JOE COHEN (*WIN)...remember...smoke rises...


Also tonight, the hottest new venue in the Bay Area, The Sweetwater Music Hall, opens its doors for its first of many shows to come!! http://www.sweetwatermusichall.com/


Friday, the BISS Crew will be putting out fires all over town...whether it is THE PIMPS OF JOYTIME at the Independent (Congrats Heather N!)...or the DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS at Brick and Mortar (Congrats Jessica F! & *WIN), one thing is for sure, we will all converge on the Boom Boom Boom Room by the end of the night for ROBERT WALTER'S NEW SLANG featuring Reed Mathis, Sergio Rios, Joe Cohen & Simon Lott (Congrats Gina M! Still a chance to*WIN for Saturday!)


Saturday we get a chance to see some of the same amazing music again and/or mix it up!! Got to love this city and its twofers.


On Saturday, early evening (5p-7p), we head to the Boom Boom Room for the YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROJECT Meet and Greet. Join the staff and board members of YEP for a fundraiser to help this non-profit organization who assist young people returning to New Orleans from correctional facilities, by providing intensive case management, mentoring and educational services. Music provided by the one and only Wil Blades.


For any of the BISS crew in the East Bay on Saturday check out BOCA DO RIO at Ashkenaz (*WIN)


Sunday, we are getting up early for Hooping and Roller disco in GG Park. (6th ave & Fulton) Then we head over to MILK by 3pm for Bluegrass Sunday with Big Train Wreck, Lonesome Locomotive, and The Beauty Operators. ...knock em dead Sharon!


Sunday night finish the weekend off right with WILCO at the Warfield! Man.....the BISS Crew will have to soak their feet after all those smoking dance moves!
