Now let's get down to this week's plan!! I know you will all be at the Eddie Roberts' show tonight so you won't be going to the THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. No worries, it's a two night run at the Oracle in San Jose. So we can still go Wednesday. So psyched to see them!

Thursday, you have a LOT of choices!  DR. JOHN is going to bring down the house for two nights at The Independent (*WIN). THE CHERRY POPPIN DADDIES are playing at Yoshi's SF! (*Congrats Lisa M! and ONE MORE CHANCE TO WIN!)  You could also get your gramble on with NICKI BLUHM & THE GRAMBLERS at The New Parish (*WIN).

Friday, get ready for 3 sold out PHISH shows coming to The Bill Graham Civic Center. Happy 50th Reilly!! Each night after the show, catch the after parties all over town! On Friday, POLYRHYTHMICS are at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN), and THE B-SIDE PLAYERS are at The Elbo Room. 

On Saturday, if you can't make it to the Phish show, go to Brick & Mortar to check out the web-cast, or stay for TRACORUM, keeping you rocking out all night long. Need a little more boogie? Finish your night off at MOKSHA at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).

BTW, if anyone is headed to the PHISH shows and wants to help the BISS Street Team distribute handbills, let us know!! Street teamers get more chances to win tickets!!
