BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 03.07.14 - DE LA SOUL / UMPHREES / DUMSTAPHUNK with KATDELIC / HUMIDORS & JORDAN :: NEXT WK: KARL D!!

Happy Thursday BISS Listers! I know, you might be reading this on Friday but just got in from a couple of local shows and it's still Thursday at BISS HQ. Ashling "Biscuit" Cole paid a worthy tribute to the late great Teena Marie tonight at Yoshi's and I couldn't break away. That woman has got some serious pipes!

It's been a good week already here in SF! For the third year in a row, Parish Entertainment Group has orchestrated a truly legit (mini) Mardi Gras Parade here in the city.  How could we go wrong with the the likes of Brass Mafia, North Beach Brass Band, Brass Band Mission & BISS crew? Then we followed it up with a show at Brick & Mortar featuring WIL BLADES WITH JAZZ MAFIA HORNS, Stanford Marching Band, & Brass Band Mission! The night would not have been complete without Cajun Pacific's fabulous Fried Oysters, Jambalaya, Gumbo & Cornbread! The beads and feathers were flying in a green and purple frenzy! A big thanks to everyone who participated and joined us to celebrate the day we get to go crazy. It was totally a BISS Listers kinda day!

In the city this Friday night,  De La Soul still has some tickets for the 8pm show at Yoshi's SF while the 10pm is already SOLD OUT. Grab a ticket if you can! Just up the street, at The Fillmore is ANI DIFRANCO. You might even recognize one of our favorite NOLA drummers in the band, Mr. Terrence Higgins. Then of course, head over to The Boom Boom Room for CHUM (*WIN), the Phish tribute band that makes you swim and groove all at the same time.

In the North bay on Friday, check out SAMBADA playing at Hopmonk in Sebastopol (*WIN) or try to steal (or *WIN) tickets to PETTY THEFT at Sweetwater!

SATURDAY, if you are not headed to The Fox to see UMPHREE'S MCGEE with CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS (did someone say Guitarfish 2014??) then we know you will be at The Independent for DUMPSTAPUNK with KATDELIC opening (*WIN)!!!! If you are in the city Saturday, this is the show to see! And with your ticket stub from the Indy, you get $5 off at the door to the late night show at the Boom Boom Room (where else?) where THE HUMIDORS will be having a CD release party! PLUS JORDAN AND THE RITUAL will be opening the night (*WIN)! **GOING LATE NIGHT!**

Sunday DUMPSTAPHUNK is at Hopmonk in Novato (*WIN), and DUB MISSION is where the BISS Listers will be in the city (*WIN). Of course ending with ROTC at Boom Boom Room with DJ Kevvy Kev!

Monday, everyone's favorite door man from the Boom Boom Room, AARON, will be guest bartending at Showdown while the comics on stage will make you giggle and forget it's a Monday...

Don't forget...TOOL is this Tuesday and Wednesday at the Civic Center! Also MIKE GORDON is at the Fillmore on Tuesday cause you know that Tuesday is the new Friday. And while we are at it, Railroad is playing three nights at the Fillmore next week too.

I hope that all you BISS crew will rep hard for me next weekend! It's gonna be double fun with Karl Denson at the Indy (*WIN)! To get you pumped for the show, check out this awesome interview with Karl D by  BISS contributing editor Josh Danson!! 

I will be on a plane this Tuesday as I make a visit to my cold hometown in the midwest (literally freezing & snow). Don't you worry my dear BISS Listers, Miss Sunny, aka Diaries of a Tenderloin Princess aka Sparkle Princess aka Vice President of Awesomeness will get your BISS to you! (hopefully more timely than I've been doing lately myself)

...Cause rain, shine, or snow, the music keeps coming and so does the BISS List!!
