BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 10.03.12 - HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS / TRACORUM / BM DECOMP / LYNYRD SKYNYRD & DOOBIES / DEAD WINTER / TRAFFIC ALERT IN SF!!!

San Francisco is just about the best city ever! How could it not be with all it has to offer?!  (And we'll try to keep it just to music here) Amazing SOLD OUT show of ZIGABOO at BISS favorite Marin venue, SWEETWATER MUSIC HALL, this past Friday. Followed by beautiful Saturday at Bay Area favorite venue SHORELINE AMPHITHEATER with Jimmy Cliff, The Shins, Beats Antique, Alison Krauss... Then back to the city to BISS late night favorite spot, Boom Boom Room for YO MAMA'S BIG FAT BOOTY BAND. Little recovery time (and a little work) on beautiful Sunday morning and then another trip to Shoreline for FURTHUR! But my weekend couldn't stop there...  Work Monday morning then Hoop Break at Ocean Beach because it was too gorgeous of a day not to! Then freshen up and back to Sweetwater for some good old fashioned Southern rock and roll with THE OUTLAWS...

Take Tuesday to work/rest/write this week's BISS List and start gearing up for one of the most hard core weeks to ever come to San Francisco!!

Wednesday night, we can't miss BISS and GUITARFISH favorite, TRACORUM at SWEETWATER in Mill Valley.  Thinking about getting there early to get a bit to eat. Already imagining Chef Gordon's Filet Mignon sliders and then... yum!

Thursday will be a beautiful day for a trip to Sonoma on my dear friends Elie's awesome GREEN DREAM WINE TOUR!!

And then we roll into the most insane of insane weekends EVER in San Francisco!!! Let's start with the fact that 750,000 people descend upon my neighborhood for the HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL (HSBG) in Golden Gate Park!! That's three days, SIX stages, and over 80 bands!! That's PATTY GRIFFIN, LES CLAYPOOL, COWBOY JUNKIES, EMMYLOU HARRIS, CHUCK PROPHET, CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD, ELVIS COSTELLO, DWIGHT YOAKAM, LLOYD COLE, PATTI SMITH, STEVE EARLE, VINCE GILL, NICK LOWE, ALO, BOZ SCAGGS, RUBBLE BUCKET, BUDDY MILLER, STEVE KIMOCK WITH WALLY INGRAM AND BERNIE WORREL AND ANDY HESS, POOR MAN'S WHISKEY, PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND. PETER ROWAN, THE LUMINEERS, AND SO MANY MORE!!!! OH and did I mention its FREE?!!! Yeah, really, FREE!! Thank you and god bless you WARREN HELLMAN!! **Hey BISS crew!! Who's taking charge to go with me to stake the spots on Friday and Saturday mornings?

Want more FREE awesomeness from your City By The Bay this weekend? How about you look up in the sky and watch the Blue Angels fly over your head?!  http://www.fleetweek.us/ Or look out into the bay and watch the America's cup?!  http://www.americascup.com/  

While we are at it, don't forget about all the sporting events with both the 49's and SF Giants playing home games!! Not to mention that they are in the play offs!! Go GIANTS!

Feeling like you want to let loose a little more than all that? Get dressed up... or undressed up and strut your stuff at the Castro Street Fair on Sunday. You gotta see it to believe it!!

Speaking of seeing it to believe it and undressing up..! Burning Man Decompression 2012 starts at noon on Sunday with multiple stages, art, installations, performance, fire, dance, theme camps, circus arts going for 12 hours on Indiana St. bet. Mariposa & 22nd St! We'll let you find the after parties on your own!

Speaking of sexy, would kinda love to see MADONNA on Saturday or Sunday in San Jose but can you say TRAFFIC ALERT!??

Oh wait, that's not enough you say? There are also plenty of NIGHT SHOWS for HSBG taking place at Great American Music Hall, Slims and the newest venue of SF... The name says it ALL!  Preservation Hall West at The Chapel... Love it!!
