BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.05.12 - Rubblebucket / DSO / Materialized / Tracorum / Monophonics / California Honeydrops


BISS Listers! The official countdown for Jazzfest has begun so get your beads packed, masks painted and livers in check 'cause two weeks of music festivities are on the horizon. The NOLA version of BISS is coming out next week. We would love to hear from you what your top three shows are so we can be sure to include them. Email biss@bisslist.com to let us know!!

As per usual, the city by the bay has a great week of music in store to keep our antsy pants at bay.

Thursday, not only do we have high flying RUBBLEBUCKET playing at Brick & Mortar (*WIN) but also DARK STAR ORCHESTRA lands at The Great American Music Hall for the beginning of a three day run. (*Congrats Marni L!)

To those of you celebrating Passover this weekend, Chag sameach!!!  While some of us are drinking wine with Elijah on Friday and Saturday night many of you will be getting your Dead fix with Dark Star Orchestra at The Great American Music Hall.  Both of which are excellent occasions to get your party on!!

Still itching for more to do on Friday? Get out of the city and check out THE CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS at The New Parish in Oakland (*WIN). Or head north for BISS favorite MONOPHONICS at George's Night Club in San Rafael.

Saturday is a night of BISS favorites in SF so the BISS Crew will be out in full force!!! We will start with MATERIALIZED opening for LYNX at Brick & Mortar. (*WIN), Then we'll head straight for the The Boom Boom Room for TRACORUM rocking it late night! (*WIN)

Happy Easter to you all on Sunday!! If you don't have Easter plans, join us in the park for Sunday Bunny Funday!!

May your weekend be full of matzo balls, peeps, & live music!

Someone just told me that a San Francisco music fan is not really a fan without the BISS list. And I told her that the BISS List would be nothing without the San Francisco music fan! Thanks as always for your support!
