BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 07.03.12 - Jammin On Haight / Skerik / Super Rock Trio w Eric McFadden / Happy Fourth / Happy High Sierra!!


Dear Biss Listers,

I am off to High Sierra. I got my costumes and sparkles packed. Where did all my tails go? Ready to have a blast with everyone that is going and I'm all set to enjoy BEN HARPER, RAILROAD EARTH, GALACTIC, MATISYAHU, SOULIVE, ALO, HEARTLESS BASTARDS, BIG GIGANTIC, DEER TICK, GREENSKY BLUEGRASS, LETTUCE, MARCHFOURTH MARCHING BAND, THE MOTET: FUNK IS DEAD!, SKERIK'S BANDALABRA, THE NEW ORLEANS SUSPECTS, and many many more. While I am out of town having the time of my life I am leaving Sunny, my VPOA (Vice President of Awesomeness) aka Tenderloin Princess, in charge, which means glitter will be involved and trouble might happen. Such is the life of a BISS lister. Now go have fun at these shows Because I Said So.
Sincerly,
Miss Biss

Sometimes being the Tenderloin Princess is hard. You have to work and can't go to HIGH SIERRA (boooooooooo). For anyone in the same boat, don't let FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) get the best of you. Brush it off like water from a duck's back, after all, this is San Francisco, we are on the BISS list, and I am a Princess. You know we can find a good time.

Starting with the Fourth of July!!!!! Pretty colorful sparkles that go in the air and go bang = Awesomeness. Totally. And it is a national holiday, so everybody enjoy your day off.

During the day from 2pm-6pm head on down to Haight and Masonic and check out the Grand Opening Party of JAMMIN ON HAIGHT(formerly Positively Haight), a new visionary boutique founded by renowned tie dye artists Benjammin and Jeremy St Rebel.  Ride the Jammin Cable Car up and down Haight Street with JOE COHEN, ERIC GARLAND, ED IVEY & DAVE SCOTT as well as MATT HUBBARD (7 Walkers). Join Grateful Dead album artist Stanley Mouse and numerous counter culture icons (and a princess) as they celebrate the launch of Jammin on Haight. Come on by the store and check out BISS favs ROCK N THE TREND & ROCKIN SOCKS as well. That's beyond a twofer.

Then it is off to watch the fireworks we go.

Thursday is happy dance time with SMOKEY ROBINSON at Davies Symphony Hall and SKERIK'S BANDALABRA "Booty Shakin Band" featuring members of MCTUFF is at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN). A booty shaken band. You know I am going to be there.

Oh and HIGH SIERRA starts Thursday. At bay FOMO you must stay.

Friday, head to Brick and Mortar and check out the SUPER ROCK TRIO featuring ERIC MCFADDEN, JAY LANE & ED IVEY (*WIN). Get that "this is disgusting in the best kinda way" look on your face as they tear the house down. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Saturday is THE FILMORE JAZZ FESTIVAL featuring THE KING BROTHERS, JAI UTTAL AND THE QUEEN OF HEARTS ORCHESTRA, LOCURA, KIM NALLEY, and more.
Finish the night with BLACKALICOUS at The wonderful Independent (*WIN) or head to the north bay with HOT BUTTERED RUM at Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael or check out STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL at the great sounding Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN). Need a late night craving satisfied? Head to The Boom Boom Room for CHICAGO AFROBEAT PROJECT & GROOVE 8 (*WIN).

Let the weekend slip away with THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY playing for free at Stern Grove on Sunday.

As the festivillains trickle back on Monday, gather together and tap your feet and tell stories at THE MIKE OLMOS at The Union Room.

FOMO isn't possible when you are on the BISS LIST. Because I Said So.
