BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 06.26.12 - MICKEY HART / BROTHERS CALATAYUD / JUNO WHAT?!/ THE WILD MOUNTAIN FAIRE/ THE ROCK COLLECTION


Hello Biss Listers! First off, all of us here at BISS HQ are sending some healing vibes and get well glitter to Papa Mali. We love you and we wish you a speedy recovery!!

Now, are you ready to FESTIVAL?! HIGH SIERRA is quickly approaching!! We couldn't be more excited for one of the BISS crew's most favorite fests, only a week away! While you are reading your BISS List next week, half our crew will already be on our way up to work the fest. Don't forget to get your late night tickets ASAP! Even though we have been telling you every week, some of us here at BISS HQ didn't listen to ourselves and missed the window on combo tickets. (whose got an extra for me?!) Sunday still has combos and single night shows are still available so get them quickly!

Next week not soon enough to get to a festival? Why not warm up this weekend with THE WILD MOUNTAIN FAIRE FESTIVAL? Featuring... *Congrats to Jess Haun!!

Now on to this week...

Tuesday night, Steppin is doing their thing at Madrone Art Bar. The bonus, is our dear friend Amy is in town and will be set up there with her massage chair. Get your funk on with Steppin while Amy gets her healing hands on you!

Also Tuesday night, Queen Extravaganza is at The Regency. (*WIN) In a show which will run just over two hours of playing time, with a 30 minute break, The QE band will perform close on 40 true Queen classics drawn from a list of the bands biggest all-time chart hits. Masterminded by Taylor and May themselves, The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to bring the glorious music and live experience of Queen to multiple generations of fans. 

Wednesday, the North Bay looks like the place to be with JAMES NASH & THE NOMADS at Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN) and also FURTHER starting a run at TERRAPIN CROSSROADS.

Thursday, besides AFROLICIOUS making your booty shake at The Elbo Room (WIN), we got SOFA KINGS at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).

Friday night, in the East Bay, we strongly recommend Direct from Brazil! The return of Samba Pagode Stars, BROTHERS CALATAYUD & LITTLE BRASIL w/ Boca do Rio. (*WIN)

In the city on Friday, you can whip out your harmonica and play along with THE BLUE'S BROTHERS REVIVAL at Yoshi's (*WIN). Sunny Says, "You MUST end your night with the electronic-funk-awesomeness that is JUNO WHAT?! at The Boom Boom Room" (*WIN).

Saturday get rhythmic with THE MICKEY HART BAND at The Fillmore (*Congrats to Daniel W, Eric C, & Misty R!). Then get another fix of JUNO WHAT?! right across the street at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).

Sunday is jam packed... THE SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL with ROCK COLLECTION featuring Mark Karan, Lebo, Greg Anton, & Robin Sylvester plus Sol Doc is at The San Geronimo Valley Center. It should be a fabulous afternoon in the North Bay. (*WIN)

If you can get yourself up nice and early and over to Stern Grove to get a spot, you can spend the afternoon with The Stone Foxes and PRESERVATION HALL Jazz Band.

If you are looking for a little more edge to your Sunday, head to Shoreline for THE ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL featuring SLIPKNOT, SLAYER, MOTORHEAD, AS I LAY DYING, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, and many many more (*WIN).

Whewww! Being on the BISS list sure does keep you on your toes.
