BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 01.09.14 DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS / DIEGO'S UMBRELLA / BLADES, SKERIK, LOTT, COHEN / DUB MISSION!!


Happy Thursday BISS Listers! Looks like another wonderful musical weekend in the city. And it's a good thing too! I need some awesome beats to distract me from this month long cleanse of all the toxins. You can take the booze & sugar out of the BISS but you can't take the music out of the BISS. And you definitely can't take the BISS out of the music scene! 


Tonight, Thursday, start your body grooving to AFROLICIOUS at the Elbo Room (*WIN). Then keep the funky and add the jazzy stylings of KOOBI FORA at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).



Friday night, at The Independent, The DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS will get your feet stomping with the band's onstage presence highlighted by the vocal melodies and five part harmonies, ferocious fluidity of the fiddle, deep pounding thump and thud of the upright bass, country ramblings of the telecaster and acoustic guitars, and the driving drums all melded together to create an experience that is sure leave you wanting more... (*WIN)

Then put on your finest duds cause we got some legends in the house at the Boom Boom Room with GRANT GREEN JR., BERNARD PURDIE, EAMONN FYLNN, & DANIEL CASARES (*WIN). This is musical greatness going late night right here in SF on Friday night!

Saturday during the day head down to the Boom Boom Room for KPOO'S benefit with BISS fave Victor Little. S.O.S.! SAVE OUR STATION! Benefit for KPOO Radio 89.5FM this Saturday (1-4pm). Live Music from Victor Little along with Prizes, T shirts and tons of Fun. The event will be broadcast LIVE on KPOO 89.5 FM and WWOZ 90.7 FM. $10 suggested donation. Support Independent Local Radio!

Then Saturday Night night at The Independent is DIEGO'S UMBRELLA with CON BRIO opening plus MOTION POTION. Diego's Umbrella describes their own music as "a blend of eastern European gypsy traditional stuff, Spanish flamenco, polka/ska rhythms, and good ol' pop and rock from the west. It sounds schizo to describe it, but it all comes together as dance music. It's a show for getting drunk, sweaty and making bad decisions. Their matching outfits are homemade, and they are known to perform shows without set lists. (*WIN)

Late night Saturday (or maybe the whole night for you), we head back to The Boom Boom Room for another off the hook night of music with WIL BLADES, SKERIK, SIMON LOTT & JOE COHEN (*WIN).

Sunday, we’re gathering a crew for a night of Dub Step with Dub Mission presents the best in dub, roots reggae & dancehall featuring DJ Sep, J. Boogie (Dubtronic Science), and special guest Matt Haze (Slayers Club) (*WIN)!!

As 2014 starts to take off, get ready & mark your calendar for these BISS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED upcoming shows....

1/17/14 & 1/18/14 - Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2014 - The Edwardian Ball is an elegant, whimsical, spectacle of a madhouse slapdashery of costumery and cocktails, circus and storytelling, ribald music, and daring exhibitions that promise to entice and enchant - a feast for the senses with the style and panache of the turn of the 19th century. Attendees will be immersed into a stylish era of elaborately dressed, highfalutin' Edwardian period fashion, creative goth, steampunk attire and wacky, bizarre and macabre costumes inspired by the eccentric author/illustrator Edward Gorey.

2/1/2014 - High Sierra Music and Mr. Hat present a very special Guitarmageddon Tribute to the life and music of J.J. Cale at the Brick and Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco. Guitarmageddon is a project featuring Bay Area guitar heros Josh Clark (Tea Leaf Green), Dan "Lebo" Lebowitz (ALO, Jack Johnson), Jeff Miller (New Monsoon) and band leader Sean Leahy.
