BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 05.24.12 - Big Sam's Funky Nation / Tab Benoit / Katdelic / Nibblers / Carnaval SF Post Party!


Summertime and the living is easy, especially when you are on the BISS list 'cause BISS Listers know where to find the best live music and how to win free tickets! What could be easier than that?!

Thursday starts the weekend off with a jam-packed punch. No matter what kind of music you want to see, Thursday has it all. You can start by dropping the lyrics at TENACIOUS D at The Fox or rock it out with the up and coming band CON BRIO at The Great American Music Hall  Who doesn't love a bad-ass chick that shreds the guitar? (*Congrats to Heather S!). In the East Bay tonight? That's easy! Check out MARCO BENEVENTO at Yoshi's, sure to tear up that piano till there is nothing left. (*Congrats to Suzan A!)

Still having withdrawal from NOLA Jazz Fest? Or maybe you didn't get to go this year?? No worries, NOLA comes to us this weekend!!! On Friday night, we have Big Sam's Funky Nation (*WIN). We are going to get there early so we can catch our friends, All Of A Sudden opening. Not to mention the fact that we don't want to miss Gumbo Dave's Chicken & Andouille Gumbo plus Jambalaya!! Then on Saturday night we get Tab Benoit at Slim's with BISS favorite Jimmy Leslie & The Flow opening up with his CD Release Party! (*WIN)

Late night on Friday?  It's the "good kind of dirty funk" with KATDELIC at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN), going late night and full "meowwwwwwww." Wear your cat ears if you got em!  Or get yourself a pair when you get there!

In the north bay on Friday check out HOT BUTTERED RUM at Hopmonk or B-SIDE PLAYERS & BAYONICS at the Mystic. As any good BISS Lister knows, good music is everywhere!!

Saturday, besides it being CARNAVAL, yes, we know you love this city, check out THE NIBBLERS at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN), another new BISS favorite! Or venture to the north bay for CAST OF CLOWNS at Sweetwater Music Hall or THE MOTHER HIPS at the Uptown Theater in Napa. Get those hips moving!!!

For those of you going to Carnaval on Saturday, make sure to be at 20th Street for NATIVE ELEMENTS at 3:15 and dance like no one is watching all the way through AFROLICIOUS' set. (same stage starting at 4:30)

Carnaval on Sunday is going to be hectic! The parade starts at 9:30am and is always awesome! We'll start off going to the 17th Street Stage at 1:40 to catch LAGOS ROOTS AFROBEAT and quickly run over to 20th Street to catch part of BANG DATA. We're going to have to think up a plan of attack for BAYONICS' set, MANICATO's set, and KATDELIC's set. They all go on at 3:05, at each stage, and we MUST see them all. Maybe we should wear roller-skates. In the end we'll end up on 22nd Street for Boca Do Rio at 4:30. **Let us know if you are going and want to join the BISS Street Team and help us flyer!!!

The party keeps going at Mighty with THE BRAZILIAN CARNAVAL POST PARTY!! It's 7 hours of pure Brazilian spice starting at 6pm! Live music includes BROTHERS CALATAYUD & LITTLE BRASIL (SAMBA PAGODE) with FOGO NA ROUPA, BOCA DO RIO, MONDO LOKO, with special guest ANTONIO GUEDES, and COELHO & RIDNELL. Special guest musicians including master percussionist JAMES HENRY, trumpet player WILL MAGID, izzy*wise, and much more. (*WIN WIN WIN)

It's a long holiday weekend so why not celebrate Memorial Day with more music. THE ROOTS is at the Regency and Mike Olmos is at The Union Room. Damn, this city is the place to be, especially when you are BISSfully on the BISS list.
