BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 03.12.14 - RAILROAD EARTH / KARL DENSON / BRITGRASS INVASION /LAKE STREET DRIVE / NEXT WK: MIKE GORDON!!

If the city seems a little less sparkle filled and if you don't see a flash of tie-dye round Fillmore, it is because our dear MISS BISS has up and flown home for a week, leaving us yearning for her to return some color and music to our life.
 
Thank goodness I might have enough sparkles and tie-dye for us to make it through the week...maybe...fingers crossed...here is hoping.
 
So hurry up Pammy and come home...it is so hard to have you away! What show should we go to? How many shows a night do we go to? Who is joining me for an espresso martini at NOPA before the Indy?
 
We will survive...but it won't be the same...and someone else is going to have to pick up the the torch this week to keep "going and going and going!"
 
Cause there are a LOT of shows to go to this week...
 
For example, if you miss him tonight, Wednesday in Oakland, you still have a couple more nights to meet RICK SPRINGFIELD at Yoshi's in San Francisco on Thursday (premier seating and meet & greet options are available as are opportunities).  Thursday also starts the first of 3 nights of RAILROAD EARTH at The Fillmore.  Need more Bluegrass? What about a Britgrass Invasion tribute to the Beatles at The Chapel featuring Nat Keefe, Chris Haugen, Erik Yates, The T Sisters, Belle Monroe, The Beauty Operators, and more?  Chuck Poling from California Bluegrass Association will MC. Rubber Souldiers (Rowan Brothers w/David Gans) are celebrity judges for the "battle of the bands". Free posters for first 200 paid (*WIN)!!  Need a different beat but still in the mission area? Thank goodness for AFROLICIOUS at The Elbo Room (*WIN).
 
Friday, this Princess will be taking the ladies to KARL DENSON'S TINY UNIVERSE for the first of two nights at The Independent!!!!Wondering what Karl D has been up to lately? Well check out the latest in this interview, BISS contributing editor, Josh Danson, had with Karl just last week!! Thanks Josh & Karl!!
http://livebisslist.blogspot.com/p/interview-with-karl-denson.html
 
Some of you might do night two of RAILROAD EARTH atr the Fillmore on Friday night.  Others of you, might head to the The Great American Music Hall for the SOLD OUT show of LAKE STREET DIVE & THE CONGRESS.  After all this awesome music head over to ....where else...The Boom Boom Room for this just added after party featuring NORWOOD FISHER (Fishbone) BRADLEY LEACH (koobi Fora) BRIAN JORDAN (KDTU) JOE COHEN (Jazz Mafia) MIC BLAKE (Alphabet Soup) CB (Alphabet Soup) and so many more. (*WIN)
 
Saturday, is night two of KARL DENSON and night three of RAILROAD EARTH! Plus STEPPIN will keep you going at the Boom Boom Room  late night. Up in the North Bay, GALACTIC is at the Mystic.  (Don't worry city folks, they are here next week at The Fillmore!)  Also Saturday, VINYL is at The Hopmonk in Novato!
 
Saturday night, celebrate Purim with Chabad for the annual Purimpalooza party at The San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking, 925 Mission St. (@ 5th St.). Live Music by 'Jerry's Kosher Deli' Featuring, Saul Kaye, Jordan Feinstein, Ben Bernstein and more. PLUS Open Bar, Live Music, Photo Booth, Megillah Reading, Costumes & Dancing.
HAPPY  PURIM!! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/purim-palooza-tickets-10725940577
 
Sunday, Pammy always likes her DUB MISSION and then she heads to RETURN OF THE CYPHER at The Boom Boom Room.   I usually can't keep up cause I ain't Pammy...maybe this week I will try...but I am nothing like the real thing...besides there is a whole lot of awesome music next week...don't forget MIKE GORDON is at the Fillmore on Tuesday with CHRIS Z & HIGH BEAMZ doing the late night show at the Boom Boom Room !!  Galactic is next week and Widespread M******F******** PANIC is at the Fox the week after that...someone slap a princess she gets way too antsy for some Panic!!!  And I bet when Pammy comes back more GUITARFISH artists will be announced...more importantly...PAMMY WILL BE BACK....
 
I need more sparkles to keep up!!
