Happy Pre-Mardi Gras & Tour D'Amour BISS Listers!  February is flying by and the days are becoming longer and brighter, giving us more time to celebrate the kick ass music that is going to ROCK the bay this weekend.

Mardi Gras is coming to town a couple of weeks early with three nights of NEW ORLEANS SUSPECTS! Brick & Mortar shows are Thursday and Saturday while New Parish is on Friday.  Bonus on BREAKESTRA playing these shows! Then throw in some good eatin from the one and only Jacques-Imo's and it's a NOLA style party for sure! (*WIN)

Friday night, if you aren't headed to The New Parish, it must be because you are going to ALO at the Fillmore for the annual Tour D'Amour!  Bonus on this show?  ORGONE opening!!  The theme for the night is Love vs. Lust.  Congrats to Nancy & Jenny! **check the BISS FB page for Nancy's awesome winning poem!!

Another annual tradition, especially after an ALO show, is long time BISS favorite, JORDAN & THE RITUAL. Bonus? It's just across the street at the Boom Boom Room! (*WIN) Another bonus? It's goin late night!!

Saturday, the Mardi Gras pre-party continues with ICONS OF FUNK featuring LEO NOCENTELLI, BERNIE WORRELL, BILL "THE BUDDHA" DICKENS & ADRIAN HARPHAM!(*WIN) This show will be off the funk hook!!! Also continuing the Mardi Gras  party, is night number three of NOLA SUSPECTS plus BREAKSTRA and Jacque-Imos at Brick & Mortar!!  Then, what better way to finish off a good Saturday night, then to head to The Boom Boom Room and get funky with one of San Francisco's finest funk bands, VINYL...going past 3am and sure to keep you moving! (*WIN)

Sunday night, DUB MISSION at Elbo Room and KEVVY KEV's Return of The Cypher at Boom Boom Room are both the place for a BISS girl to be....

And the bay area is a perfect place for a music lover to be!!
