BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 01.24.14 - TEA LEAF GREEN / TURKUAZ / NICKI BLUHM / NEXT WK: ROYAL S. BROTHERHOOD, N MISS ALLSTARS, HARD WKING AMERICANS!!


Happy Friday BISS Listers! Yeah, I know, I know, I'm a little late this week to get you your BISS List so that you can plan your weekend. It's been a busy week with lots of Guitarfish planning meetings. And once the team gets together, we just get hooked! Speaking of Guitarfish 2014, BISS Presents is elated to remind you to mark your calendar for August 1, 2, & 3 for our fourth annual GUITARFISH MUSIC FESTIVAL at Cisco Grove (near Tahoe)!! If you haven't been, you have surely heard about it and you will want to be watching for the Early Bird tickets to go on sale!!

To make up for being late, aside from giving you the Guitarfish dates, I am going to bring next weekend up on the radar. It's looking like one of the craziest most packed musical weekends we have had yet for 2014!!

OK then, no time for chit chat, let's get on with it!!

This is what my own personal events and entertainment calendar has listed between today, January 21st and Super Bowl Sundayon February 2nd...(There are PLENTY of more shows listed in the BISS calendar below and on the Google calendar atwww.bisslist.com)

TONIGHT, Friday, January 21st, I am headed to TEA LEAF GREEN at The New Parish. **Congrats to Whitney P & Jon S! Also congrats to Diana G on winning DOGON LIGHTS tonight at Ashkenaz. It's a GUITARFISH FEST kinda night so far with both of those bands in town!

It's a good thing that the Boom Boom starts and ends later 'cause I want to be sure to catch a good chunk of TURKUAZ (NYC 10 piece)! Bo always asks if that comes in a bucket with a side of coleslaw? Well yeah, and covered with gravy too!! I am more blown away every time I see them!  #Seriously!  *WIN!

Tomorrow, Saturday, January 22nd, the woman who brought you the original "van sessions", NICKI BLUHM & THE GRAMBLERS is SOLD OUT at the Fillmore. I won't be missing one minute of that show!! And how lucky am I, that the other band not to be missed on Saturday, is TURKUAZ just across the street at the Boom Boom Room? I hear the first TURKUAZ set on Saturday will be "Talking Heads", Stop Making Sense.(*Congrats to Cody and Happy Birthday Lauren!!*)

Sundays have been a fun night to go out lately. There aren't too many people out on the streets but the shows can be packed! Both DUB MISSION at Elbo Room (*WIN) & RETURN OF THE CYPHER with DJ KEVVY KEV (Wu Tang) at Boom Boom Room with NO COVER, are always super solid nights with a variety of guests each week!

Tuesday night, Jan 28th, I'm taking a Salsa Fitness class at 7:30 taught by my girl, Nilo, at Rae Studios in Union Square. (ALL LEVELS)

Wednesday, I might have to stay in to be sure I get next week's BISS List out earlier. HOWEVER, Wednesday, Jan 29th, I might find myself in the East Bay for STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL (*WIN) or at Brick and Mortar for MAXWELL HUGHES (FROM LUMINEERS). Then again, maybe I'll find myself with a ticket for THE EAGLES at one of the many Bay Area shows next week.

Thursday, next weekend begins!! Not only because one of my long time friends, Jeff is coming to visit but also because this weekend is ridic for shows!! Hi Jeff!

So... Thursday night, January 30th, we'll kick off the weekend with a DJ & Live funky dance party with AFROLICIOUS at Elbo Room (*WIN).

Next friday, the 31st, is the most packed date to date of 2014!! Not only do I have more exciting GUITARFISH planning meetings scheduled but also we have 12 show listed on the BISS List for that night! TEN of those shows have ticket giveaways. I am personally trying to figure out how to make it to at least FIVE of those!! Those being: ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD at Great American, NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS at Indy, HARD WORKING AMERICANS at Fillmore featuring Dave Schools, Neal Casal, Todd Snider, Chad Staehly, & Duane Trucks), ROBERT WALTER's BRAND NEW SLANG at BBR, & NVO at Elbo Room!! I know!! Right?!!

Saturday, Feb 1st, we'll be at Brick & Mortar early to be sure we catch The Loyal Scam followed up by what I am sure is to be an amazing night of guitar madness as High Sierra and Mr. Hat Present GUITARMAGEDDON: A Tribute to the Life and Music of J.J. Cale featuring Lebo, Josh Clark, Jeff Miller and Sean Leahy! Thankfully, Saturday also gives us a second night of both N. MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS & ROBERT WALTER leaving us time for more of the other shows on Friday!

Then SUNDAY, Sunday, Sunday!! NFL SUPER BOWL XLVIII is Sunday, February 2 at 3:30 PM (PST) on FOX!!  Are you cheering for the Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos? Or you just along for the ride? Last year, we had a great time at the Boom Boom Room. They have 3 huge TV's and everyone brought a dish. It was super fun and now it's only five blocks away from home so...! #rollinwithBo

Day of rest?? Who needs it!!? #justsayin #BISS


PS - We sure are missing you folks in Mexico even though you should be having way too much fun with Furthur to be missing anyone or anything!! Travel safe & see ya soon!
