BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 02.12.13 - HAPPY MARDI GRAS! / DR. JOHN / HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! / NEW MASTERSOUNDS / DIRTY DOZEN / DAVID NELSON / DAVID LINDLEY

Happy Fat Tuesday BISSlisters! To celebrate Mardi Gras in style, we have a Mardi Gras Parade  tonight, at 5:30pm starting at Octavia & Hayes (Place Pigalle), with second line feat. Jazz Mafia, Stanford Marching Band, North Beach Brass Band, Jordan & The Ritual, Fillmore Wax, plus other guest musicians. Come Join in this 2nd annual San Fran spin on a New Orleans tradition.

The festivities don't stop as we march on into the 17TH ANNUAL MARDI GRAS BALL at Brick and Mortar featuring Brass Mafia, Stanford Marching Band, Jordan & The Ritual, other special musical surprises, where savory New Orleans cuisine will be served (*WIN).

Tomorrow, Wednesday, in the East Bay, keep the New Orleans vibes swinging with Dr. John at Yoshi's Oakland for day two of a three night run. Or, if you feel like bangin your head to some 90's grunge, SOUNDGARDEN is at the Fox. But if you stay in the city, BRIAN JORDAN's BOOGALOO BAND at the Boom Boom Room is where it's at (*WIN).

Thursday, Happy Valentine's day to  you all!! This city's gift to you is a nonstop weekend of amazing music! And the BISSlist's gift to you is telling you all about it. Can you feel the love?

Well the the love is in the air, and proof is in the pudding as we celebrate Valentine's day with a BISSlist fav NEW MASTERSOUNDS kicking off a 3 night run at the Boom Boom Room. Kind of a big deal. (*WIN WIN WIN)

Friday, If you're not bustin' loose with the NEW MASTERSOUNDS at the Boom Boom Room, Laissez les bons temps rouler with DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND at the Independent (2 nights!) (*WIN). If you're up north, check out DAVID NELSON BAND @ Mill Valley Community Center (2 nights) (*WIN).

Saturday is a repeat of Friday night, and we love it! Because round two is never for the faint of heart, and this is not our first rodeo here at The BISS List.

Bonus option for Saturday night; David Lindley at the Kanbar Center of the Performing Arts in San Rafael (*WIN).

Sunday, still fighting for my love? Do it with NIL LARA UNPLUGGED at Brick and Mortar (*WIN). Monday night get yo rest, because Tuesday we're skankin to some dub roots reggae with ISRAEL VIBRATION at the Independent (*WIN). And, while the VICTOR WOOTEN BAND is doin back flips at Yoshi's in Oakland, MARILYN MANSON and Butcher Babies are at the Warfield.

In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Love,
BISS
