BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 08.07.12 - OUTSIDE LANDS / GOD STREET WINE / ERIC MCFADDEN / LEE BOYS / ROBERT WALTER!!

Can you believe its Outside Lands time again, BISS Listers?! How amazing to have a huge gigantic and sounds like totally SOLD OUT festival just two blocks down the street in the park right here in our very own San Francisco?!  No surprise about that with a line up like STEVIE WONDER, JACK WHITE, NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE, METALLICA, FOO FIGHTERS, SKRILLEX, NORAH JONES, BECK, THE KILLS, PASSION PIT, OF MONSTERS AND MEN, FRANZ FERDINAND, FUN., DR DOG, REGGIE WATTS, BIG GIGANTIC, THEE OH SEES, SEAN HAYES, HONEY ISLAND SWAMP BAND, and soooo many more.

With such a big weekend on the horizon, we might not be paying attention to the other incredible music that is happening all around but that's why BISS List is here to remind you!

Looks like we might spend some time in the North Bay over the next couple of days... Start out on Wednesday with NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE playing at Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN). Also up north at the Mystic are the fabulous Lee Boys! (*WIN)

Then Thursday, GOD STREET WINE is finally here!! If you weren't lucky enough to be our winner, Melissa K, who gets to attend the TRI show, you can still watch the web cast LIVE! Then we keep the awesome music going on Thursday at Sweetwater with ERIC MCFADDEN  & CLOWNS IN ORBIT! (*WIN). Both Friday and Saturday after Outside Lands, it's back to the Sweetwater for GOD STREET WINE both nights!! (*WIN)

Back to Thursday, let's talk more about Thursday! You would have to take BISS style to a whole new level to try to do it all...GREAT AMERICAN TAXI with VINCE HERMAN plus special guest and BISS fave Mark Karan plus BISS & Guitarfish fave, Huckle is at Slim's (*Congrats Beth M!),  ROBERT WALTER & JAZZ MAFIA HORNS are going LATE night at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN). And our Vice President of Awesomeness (VPOA) Sunny is doing her "excited dance" for THE LEE BOYS coming to Brick and Mortar (*WIN). She says. "It's about time!"

Friday, everyone invades my neighborhood for Outside Lands. Once the traffic clears out, we'll zip up to get our God Street Wine fix but we'll be sure to get back in time for ROBERT WALTER, EDDIE ROBERTS & THE JAZZ MAFIA HORNS at the one and only Boom Boom Room! You know that place is going to be smoking so get all up in there! (*WIN)

Saturday, we spend another day in the park with Outside Lands and again book it outta here for one last night of GOD STREET WINE at the Sweetwater (*WIN). If you don't want to cross the bridge we got plenty here in the city with WHO'S YO DADDY? Featuring BIG DADDY KANE (*WIN) at Yoshi's as well as THE FUNK REVIVAL ORCHESTRA going what else? Late night, at the BBR (*WIN).

Sunday, if you are very ambitious you could catch THE GEORGE DUKE TRIO playing for free at Stern Grove before heading to Outside Lands for the day. That is right BISS LISTERS, if you play your cards right, you can see GEORGE DUKE & STEVIE WONDER on the same day.

Wind the week down on Monday with THE MIKE OLMOS at the Union Room, and get ready for next week.

It never slows down in this city, and that is just the way the BISS crew likes it.
