BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.25.12 - Eddie Roberts / Mark Karan / Guitarmageddon / Orgone / DANGERATE / Happy 5 Years Afrolicious!!


HAPPY JAZZFEST BISS LISTERS!! That's right, the time is here and even though some of us can't be there for all of it or any of it, we still gotta recognize the incredible amount of music happening in the Crescent city! Watch for the NOLA BISS Special Edition to come out tomorrow via email then keep checking the web page for updates!! http://livebisslist.blogspot.com/p/nola-biss-2012.html

For those of you staying here, have no fear, this is San Francisco, and the music is always a plenty!!

Tonight, we head to Marin first for the last Mark Karan "Wednesday Night Live" until June. Show is from 9 - 12. Lots of special guests! None of those excuses about it being a school night! 

For some of us, that's too early to call it a night even if it IS a Wednesday! So we head back to the city for more!

What better way for a musician to celebrate his birthday than to throw a party? It's Eddie Robert's birthday and the party is tonight at Brick & Mortar with EDDIE ROBERTS & ROUGHNECK. This show will be so rocking it will make your mustache curl. Happy Birthday Eddie!! (*Congrats Pete M & Suzan A!)

Are you going to Yoshi's tonight for WIL BERNARD, WIL BLADES & SIMON LOTT? (*Congrats Jason P!) That's also an early show!! Simon says, "Head to Yoshi's and watch us get down!"

Torn between Yoshi's and Brick & Mortar? No worries! Your ticket from the Yoshi's show will get you into Brick and Mortar. That's what Sunny likes to call a twofer!

Thursday, the party place to be is The Elbo Room as AFROLICIOUS hosts their first of two nights celebrating their 5 YEAR anniversary. The BISS crew sends huge congrats to the Afrolicious crew!! Thank you for taking us there for five years! Whoop whoop!!!!!!!!! *WIN*

Oh, but there is still more more more on Thursday night! In the North Bay, our friend Asher Fulero is here in town at Sweetwater Music Hall with the Fulero Lehe Band for the release of their CD Cocoon. (*WIN) Check out what Dennis Cook with Jambase had to say about this project!!

Friday night, the BISS crew (those of us left in town that is) will divide our time between the slaying licks of THE SECOND ANNUAL GUITARMIGGEDON featuring SEAN LEAHY TRIO at Slim's (*WIN) and the booty shaken beats of ORGONE at The Great American Music Hall!! (*WIN)

In the city on Saturday, BAYONICS is at the Elbo Room. Or switch it up and check out the COMEDY SHOWCASE at 50 Mason. No matter where you start you are going to want to end up at The Boom Boom Room for THE NIBBLERS, going late night of course. (*WIN)

Sunday, the BISS crew is going to put on our proudest smiles and head to Cafe du Nord for DANGERATE plus INSPECTOR GADJE. We have been waiting for this show for some time to see our young friend Daniel Cohen rock the drums on a real stage. We can't wait to see the boys of DANGERATE shred it!! 

Don't forget about MIKE OLMOS's new gig at The Union Room every Monday.

Those of you who are already there, have a blast at Jazz Fest and represent for the BISS crew!! I'll be heading that way the end of next week so our lovely Vice President of Awesomeness aka VPOA aka Diaries of a Tenderloin Princess aka Sunny, will be sending you your weekly BISS List!


BISS...
                                 ....it's kind of a big deal.
