BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 02.27.14 - MARK KARAN / STU ALEN / WILLIE WALDMAN / ROBERT RANDOLPH / NOISE POP / HAPPY MARDI GRAS!

Dear Biss Listers, As this lovely month of hearts, love and lust comes to an end, we look back BISSfully at the awesome music we have witnessed and look forward to springing into the BISStastic splendor that March promises to bring with the likes of Umphrey's with Honeydrops, Dumstaphunk, Railroad Earth with Dead Winter, Galactic, Karl Denson, Mike Gordon, Rebirth, Jackie Greenn, The Wailers, Widespread Panic, & Sharon Jones just to name a few!


This Thursday, a small group of us are making a different type of musical trip to the East Bay to see Guys & Dolls. (Thanks Sharon!) When we get back into the city, it should be perfect timing for AFROLICIOUS to be poppin at the Elbo Room (*WIN).  We will still even have time to hit the Boom Boom Room and catch some HIBBITY DIBBITY (*WIN).  They packed the house the last time and we are looking forward to round two!!


In the North Bay Thursday, long time BISS favorite, WILLIE WALDMAN PROJECT. plays Hopmonk Tavern, FEAT. WILLIE WALDMAN (SNOOP DOGG), DR. HERMAN GREEN ( MILES DAVIS), BRADLEY LEACH (ERIC LINDELL), BRIAN JORDAN (KARL DENSON'S TINY UNIVERSE), AND NORWOOD FISHER (*WIN).


Friday night, in the East Bay we have psychedelic rock at Ashkenaz with MARK KARAN'S BUDS (*WIN)!


In the city on Friday we'll be celebrating our friend June with STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL at Brick & Mortar (*WIN). Happy Birthday June!


Also in the city on Friday night, we have the continuation of Noise Pop at a variety of venues around the bay including The Chapel with THE SOFT WHITE SIXTIES, NO, THE SHE'S, & CANNONS AND CLOUDS and The New Parish with EL TEN ELEVEN (*WIN).

Saturday night, we are pleased to welcome a new venue to the Bay Area and to the BISS List!! Bonus that the opening night is your second chance this weekend to get your Mark Karan fix (*WIN)!

The Boom Boom Room is hosting the final BLOWout night of WILLIE WALDMAN'S (snoop dog) bay area appearances on Saturday. He is playing with quite the lineup including NORWOOD FISHER (fishbone), HERMAN GREEN (Miles Davis) & BRIAN JORDAN (Karl Denson)!! Plus Jammin on Haight will have their beautiful tie-dye backdrops on display for your viewing pleasure (*WIN). ...I think I might have a new outfit that matches perfectly!

Saturday, in the North Bay, ROBERT RANDOLF & THE FAMILY BAND are bringing the house down at Sweetwater (*WIN).

Tuesday, March 4th is Fat Tuesday!! Just when I thought I was back on the wagon, it's Mardi Gras and all the wheels fall off!! It's now a yearly tradition for BISS to participate in the Mardi Gras Parade brought to you by Parish Entertainment Group! This year we are steppin it up with TWO parades brought to you by Parish Entertainment group! The city BISS crew will be doing it again starting at Octavia & Hayes (Place Pigalle), with second line feat.
