BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.19.12 - New Monsoon / Infamous Stringdusters & DWC / STS9 / Poor Man's Whiskey / Lotus / Katdelic / Eddie Roberts!!


Happy 420 BISS Listers!! Only one week to go til Jazz Fest.  Be sure to check the NOLA BISS 2012 page posted on www.bisslist.com to see where your faves are playing. We aren't trying to recreate the grids, just highlighting some of the best from the submissions you sent us so far!  (Plus ticket giveaways!!)   If you have one of those off the beaten path gems that we should be including, please send it over!

Want music now? No problem!! We have plenty of music going on right here at home this weekend. We started our musical weekend early with BISS favorite Eddie Roberts playing last night at Brick and Mortar. Missed it?  There is still one more chance to catch Eddie Roberts Roughneck featuring Eddie Roberts & backed by members of Ozomatli and Jazz Mafia next Wednesday again (*WIN)!!

Tonight, Thursday, Mercedes-Benz of San Francisco hosts Sip & Savor, a delightful wine tasting and culinary event at their headquarters to support youth programming at the Mission YMCA. The Mission YMCA works with over 3,000 local families to provide quality before and after school care, teen enrichment programs, summer camps, and youth sports programs.  

Then we are off to the Fillmore to get old school with Squeeze. Congrats Henry W and Mike S! Then we can go get nasty with THE REAL NASTY right across the street at Boom Boom Room. (*WIN)

Friday night, we head over the GG Bridge for NEW MONSOON at The Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley!  Should be a great night of music and good friends! Happy Birthday to Tony & Paula!

If you are staying in the city on Friday, you must be going to The Infamous Stringdusters and Dead Winter Carpenters at the Independent (*WIN) followed by Vinyl at the Boom Boom Room. (*WIN)

If you are in the East Bay on Friday and/or Saturday this weekend, you must be going to STS9!! Represent BISS crew!!

Saturday, we are getting out of the city again and this time for something totally different!!  Remember the local Drive-In? Mom's station wagon, a blanket and some popcorn in the back? Well, I'm clearing out the back of my station wagon this Saturday to go see ROMY & MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. North bay crew, whose in?  

The plan is to book it back to the city in time for Lotus at the Fillmore. Congrats Killian M and Matthew T!  Then cat ears on for Katdelic right across the street at Boom Boom Room! Meow! (*WIN)

We could also stay in Marin for Everyone Orchestra at Sweetwater. OR go further north for Mother Hips at Hopmonk. OR head to the East Bay for Melvin Seals & JGB. (*WIN) That is of course if you aren't already at the Fox for Soundtribe... Like I said P L E N T Y of music this weekend!!

Then Sunday, for Earth day there is an Earth Ball kickball game in the panhandle at 10:30, then a block party and beach clean-up with Surfrider & Trumer at Ocean Beach featuring the Mermen and of course the big SF celebration down at the Civic Center Plaza.  (I'm leaning towards the Beach Block Party with the Mermen)

Monday Mr. WARREN HAYNES is doing a free show at Amoeba.  That should be insane! Then Tuesday is Dr. Lonnie Smith at Yoshi's. Then Wednesday is Eddie Roberts at Brick & Mortar. Then...

You'll just have to check your BISS again next week!!
