BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 12.4.12 - TAJ MAHAL / moe. / PHIL LESH & THE Q / OZOMATLI / FUNK REVIAL ORCHESTRA

Happy Holidays BISS Listers!!! Thanksgiving leftovers are gone... we've done Black Friday... (Some of us "Black Fridye", thank you Jammin On Haight!) Cyber Monday seems to still be going on...  Plus all the Holiday parties start next week!  The Holidaze are here!! And the Music Scene has got lots of gifts for you!!

Tonight, Tuesday starts the first of two night solo TAJ MAHAL shows at The Independent, that's right, we said solo Taj Mahal... Hope you can make it for one of these shows!

Wednesday we have ALEX & ALLYSON GREY coming to Jammin on Haight (our epic-tie-dye rainbow clothing store) to do a book signing for their new book "Net of Being" from 5-8pm.  

Thursday we have more runs starting. First of all, moe. plays the first of a three night run at The Independent.  (Yay! Skip is visiting!) In the North Bay at Terrapin starts the 4 day run of Phil Lesh & Friends, The Q featuring Phil Lesh, Warren Haynes, John Molo, Rob Baracco and Jimmy Herring! Also BRIAN MCKNIGHT starts a three day run at Yoshi's. If Thursdays are the new Friday, what does that make Friday?

Friday, those runs continue while another one starts with OZOMATLI playing the first of two nights at The Fillmore. Then we can all meet for late night for THE FUNK REVIAL ORCHESTRA at The Boom Boom Room.  

Saturday night, the marathon runs continue! Head to The Fillmore for the 2nd night of Ozo or if you have kids bring them during the day for the Ozo-kids show. Or head back to The Indy, Yoshi's or the Crossroads.  

Might have to rest on Sunday just to be ready for the EPICNESS of next week!  That is, unless we go to the last night of the Phil & The Q or last night of Brian McKnight or Meshell Ndegeocello doing a tribute to Nina Simone.

Thank you Bay Area Music Scene for all the gifts this season!!
