BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 07.11.12 - TRACORUM / THE NIBBLERS/ THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT/ STEVE MILLER & PAT BENATAR / TOOTS & THE MAYTALS


As the BISS crew slowly makes their way back to the city to dust off their feathers & glitter and do some serious laundry, Miss BISS might put her feet up for a moment. Good thing she has a Vice President of Awesomeness to help her with the BISS List. Remember BISS listers, this is San Francisco, there is no time to rest, only tons of music to see.

Starting with tonight, Wednesday, we have ONE WAY STATION at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN). MODERN DAY MOONSHINE will join them. The Boom Boom Room is always a solid venue and if you have peeps coming in from out of town, you must take them there. It is a true San Francisco musical experience.

Thursday night, in the city, Afrolicious has their weekly funky dance party at Elbo Room. (*WIN) They are playing at the BISS festival this year, GUITARFISH! Why not warm yourself up now? Or you can spread your wings and head to The Sweetwater Music Hall to check out TRACORUM (*WIN), another Guitarfish BISS favorite. Or maybe get your old school funk on at The New Parish in Oakland and see FISHBONE (*WIN).
Friday, head to The Independent and catch NOVALIMA & AFROLICIOUS (*WIN) or head to Yoshi's and catch BOOKER T JONES (*WIN). Wherever you start your evening, finish at The Boom Boom Room for Guitarfish fave, THE NIBBLERS (*WIN), going late night of course.

Saturday, get your get down on with THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT doing the first of two nights at The Greek in Berkeley, or head to Shoreline to catch the KFOX KIHNCERT featuring THE STEVE MILLER BAND, PAT BENATAR & NEIL GIRALDO (*WIN). Or you can join The Tenderloin Princess and get your groove on at AL GREEN at Nob Hill Masonic. If a princess could purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Sunday head to Stern Grove for the FREE show of NITIN SAWHNEY & MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO. The BISS crew loves Sundays in the summer at Stern Grove!

Monday would not be Monday without THE MIKE OLMOS at The Union Room and Tuesday is now awesomeness cause TOOTS & THE MAYTALS are playing at The Fillmore.

'Cause here at the BISS List, we keep on keepin on.

There are so many many more shows and festivals coming up in the next four weeks and they are all listed below. We have even more shows listed on our google calendar:  https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=hckhd8c90tv4fivsmb3eph9j64%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/Los_Angeles
