BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 05.31.12 - Mama's Cookin' / BILLY MARTIN & WIL BLADES / Ernest Ranglin & VINYL / VAN HALEN / FREERADICALS PROJEKT


As the fireworks subside and the Carnaval feathers fly away, the BISS crew kisses May good-bye and jumps into the arms of June, ready for smokin' hot music that will make you feel anew.

Tonight, Thursday we pay our respects to a great man, Bill Bradt who was the co-founder of Powerhouse Brewing. ZIGABOO MODELISTE & The New Aahkesstra will be playing in his honor at Aubergine in Sebastopol for only $10 (*Congrats Sean!).

Also tonight, BISS favorite Mama's Cookin' comes  to the bay area. They are playing at Vitus in Oakland and we still have a pair of tickets to giveaway. Spread the word and email us to win!!

On Friday, the GAMH smokes it up with The BILLY MARTIN & WIL BLADES DUO plus THE ON THE SPOT TRIO (*Congrats Amy C!). In the East Bay, The Greek in Berkeley takes you back with THE BEACH BOYS 50TH ANNIVERSARY. In the North Bay, The Sweetwater Music Hall has our new friends, FREERADICALS PROJEKT!! (*WIN)

Start your Saturday night off right with a drive in movie. THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER is playing at the mobile drive in at the Old Hamilton Theater Building. Then head back to the city to celebrate Ernest Ranglin's 80th birthday with VINYL at The Great American Music Hall (*Congrats Peter!). Afterwards, head to The Boom Boom Room to see Brian Jordan going late night (*WIN).  If you get there early, you can catch our new friends FREERADICALS PROJEKT. If you haven't seen them by the end of the weekend, you can still see them on Sunday at Rockit Room (*WIN).

Feel like rocking it out hard this weekend? Shoreline is the place to be then. LIVE 105 presents bands such as JANE'S ADDICTION, SILVERSUN PICKUPS, GARBAGE, THE NAKED AND FAMOUS, FUN., GROUPLOVE, OF MONSTERS AND MEN, WALK THE MOON, and be sure to make it to the local stage to see BISS Intern favorite A B & THE SEA.

Sunday is your first chance to catch VAN HALEN who are playing at the Oracle Arena. If you miss them you can also see them on Tuesday at the HP Pavilion.

Monday the GAMH will be hosting Project Avery's "Celebrating Crowning Achievements." Project Avery is a program designed to help improve the lives of at-risk children who have a parent in prison. Performing at this event will be MOONALICE featuring PETER ROWAN. There will be a silent auction, along with dinner and wine.

We also have some residencies on the BISS calendar this month. NICKI BLUHM AND THE GRAMBLERS are claiming Tuesdays at The Rickshaw Stop and MARK KARAN commands Wednesdays at Sweetwater Music Hall.

With the MONOPHONICS record release party coming in two weeks and all the festivals like FAR WEST FEST & GUITARFISH on the horizon, make sure you all are looking fly. Maybe contact Miss Biss to get some of the new stock of ROCK N' THE TREND jewelry we have at HQ. Better yet, "LIKE" Rock N' The Trend on facebook and share their page. Just by doing that you'll be entered into our contest to win a pair of gorgeous jewelry! (Email biss@bisslist.com to be sure we know you did it)

Of course, if you are on The BISS List, you are always looking fly... and sparkly too.
