At the top of our list of things to be excited about this week is GUITARFISH MUSIC FESTIVAL! We just couldn't keep it in any longer. GUITARFISH Festival dates have been announced for July 26th - July 29th, 2013 in Cisco Grove, CA! A Limited number of Early Bird tickets are now available and the lineup is soon to follow. Guitarfish Festival 2013 Announcement

Thursday, we are starting our weekend early with STEVE KIMOCK, BERNIE WORRELL, WALLY INGRAM & ANDY HESS playing at The Great American Music Hall (*Congrats to Anthony A!). We also have RAILROAD EARTH starting a 3 NIGHT run at The Fillmore (*Congrats to Forrest & Nancy!). Then of course, head over to The Boom Boom Room for the after party featuring GOOD GRAVY (*WIN).

Thursday is the also the second of a three night run of GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC. Look! Up in the sky!! It's a bird, it's a plane... No it's the Mothership landing at Yoshi's in Oakland!!

Friday, we start our night with AMERICANA JUKEBOX featuring Jenny Kerr Band at The Plough and Star with James Whiton on bass, Ken Owen on drums plus special guests.  Be sure to get there early to catch BISS longtime favorite Daniel Cohen sitting in on the first set!

Saturday, we are hoping for a beautiful day day in Golden Gate Park!!  Happy Birthday to our dear friend Mags!!

Friday and Saturday night, we got the funk in the form of REBIRTH BRASS BAND at The Mezzanine, brought to you by the good folks with Sunset Promotions (*WIN). No matter where you are on both weekend nights, head to The Boom Boom Room to finish it 'cause they have some smoking good shows featuring DJ LOGIC, ERIC MCFADDEN, SERGIO RIOS, JAY LANE & VICTOR LITTLE in their new band: BAD JELLYFISH (*WIN). It's like Parliament made out with Primus and this band is their love child. EPIC!
