BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 2.2.12 - moe. / Honey Island Swamp Band / New Monsoon / Happy Super Bowl!

Happy February BISS Listers! Guess 2012 must be a lot of fun so far 'cause time is flying by faster than cupid can shoot his arrow!!

Have you made your Valentine's plans yet? You still have a little time to get your tickets and pull your sexy circus theme costume together for the 7th annual Star Sapphire Cosmic Love Ball at the Fillmore. The red hot line up for this year includes...MATERIALIZED, EOTO (members of SCI) & LOVE IN THE CIRCUS. Vau De Vire Society will be dancing and dazzling....Klown Korps will provide romantic mischief and much, much more fun! GET THERE EARLY! Vau De Vire Show in the Poster Room STARTS AT 9PM SHARP!! http://www.livenation.com/EOTO-tickets/artist/1127750

What is even better than one night of moe. tonight at The Indy? ...MO moe. on Friday night at The Indy!! Both shows are sold out but you know someone's got that extra for you! Congrats to Jimi S!

Representing BISS in the east bay tonight? Celebrate with STU ALLEN & Mars Hotel at Ashkenaz in Berkeley! Happy Birthday Stu!!

Friday & Saturday HONEY ISLAND SWAMP BAND (*WIN TICKETS) is at The Boom Boom Room... Get all up in there for some New Orleans Funk Driven dance floor filling grooves, a down right gumbo of New Orleans funk and soul!

Are you in the South Bay on Friday night? No worries, BISS has your back! And so does ALO in Santa Cruz at Moe's Alley!

North Bay, Are you living in your own private Idaho? Is your tin roof rusted? How's your rock lobster dance these days? Did you know the B52's are at the Throckmorton on Friday night?!

Saturday, the BISS crew will be pointing it up Soul Train style to celebrate our friend Jay's 40th birthday. Happy Birthday Jay!! Then we bring the celebration over to the Boom Boom Room to celebrate Greg's 50th birthday. Happy Birthday Greg! We aim to get there early enough to catch BISS favorite TRACORUM!!!

Hanging in the north bay on Saturday night...How about ALO at The Mystic in Petaluma? Or MONOPHONICS at 19th Broadway in Fairfax?

Looking for some music after the Superbowl and the great parties that come with it, check out the third night of THE SPINNERS at Yoshi's on Sunday (*WIN)... Come on Bay Area, you know you love to spin!

Getting Dizzy? You will get over it....Free Jazz on Mondays always helps....don't forget about MIKE OLMOS at Grant and Green every Monday night!!

Come represent BISS Krew in a Mardi Gras parade! On Tuesday February 21st kick off Mardis Gras with a parade starting at 5:30pm in the park at Hayes and Octavia streets in San Francisco. In true second line style we will be lead down Octavia by members of the Jazz Mafia, Monophonics, Extra Action Marching Band, & The BISS Krew to end the parade at Brick & Mortar Music Hall. We will provide the beads and the beats, you just need to come out and celebrate! Red beans and gumbo for sale at Brick and more free music after the parade. That evening we roll into a Fat Tuesday Party with San Fran favorites Jazz Mafia and The Monophonics.

Still wondering where I got that really beautiful flower necklace that I was rocking the last two weekends? In case you didn't find the link on the BISS List last week, here's the 411! That piece and the other guitar pick jewely came from Rock N The Trend. You can check out more of it on www.rocknthetrend.com. Get 20% off + FREE shipping when you use promo code: BISS
