BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.09.14 - STU ALLEN / DSO / AFROLICIOUS / EARPHUNK / TROMBONE SHORTY / ZACH DEPUTY / WILL BERNARD / WILLIE NELSON / POLYRYTHIMICS / BLUBBA BROTHERS / COSTUMES!

Summer is here! Yes, I know it's really just "fake summer" but when it's 84, sunny, & clear, it's hot enough to spend a day at the beach. While it may cool down outside by this weekend, the Bay Area still be hot with all this music going on!

Tonight, Wednesday, I head East to celebrate STU ALLEN'S 101st show at Ashkenaz with MARS HOTEL (*WIN)! Heard the 100th celebration show on Friday was fantastic! Congrats Stu! And enjoy that new iPad!

If you are up north tonight, you are surely catching night TWO of DARK STAR ORCHESTRA at Terrapin. If not, no worries, you still have 3 shows to catch at Great American Music Hall this week!

Thursday night, we're back at the Elbo Room for the weekly tradition of the AFROLICIOUS  funky dance party which is soon coming to an end soon after an awesome 7 year run!

Back to talking about hot... Are you gearing up for this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest? Well you can get warmed up this Thursday at The Boom Boom Room with EARPHUNK (*WIN)!! And while you are thinking about Jazz Fest & Boom Boom Room, check out the list of shows Boom Boom Room Presents has booked in NOLA for Jazz Fest with shows running from April 24th through May 2!!http://boomboomtickets.com/evlist.php

In the North Bay on Thursday, get to the Sweetwater for PATTERSON HOOD from the Drive By Truckers (*WIN).

Friday night...well good luck finding something NOT to do...

I know the BISS crew will be out in full force front row and center for another Jazz Fest warm up, TROMBONE SHORTY at The Warfield (*Congrats Nancy Z)!! Shorty's taking it to the next level! It may be hard to tear away from such a hot show as Shorty but not as much when ZACH DEPUTY is playing right down the street at Brick and Mortar (*WIN)! Then again, you might wanna catch the first of three nights of DARK STAR ORCHESTRA at The Great American Music Hall. Or what about THE DUSTBOWL REVIVAL at The Chapel (*WIN)? And then no matter what, the hottest place to be at the end of the night, and I mean that on so many levels, is Boom Boom room for WILL BERNARD'S PLEASURE DRONES making us groove till the weeeeeeeeeeeeeee hours of the morning (*WIN).

Need more choices on Friday night? 1) 5th Annual Sacred Dance 'White Party' - a benefit for Opulent Temple at Burning Man (White Attire requested) Beats provided by Billy Casazza, Brian Peek, Brian Williams, Dulce Vita, DJ Icon, ELiKi, Mike Butler, The Quadrobe, Vinkalmann and Syd Gris @ Bently Reserve, 2) Attakid Featuring Adam Theis  (*WIN) w/ On The Spot Trio @ Zodiacs, 3) An evening with Dark Star Orchestra @ Great American Music Hall, 4) Lagos Roots (*WIN) @ Yoshi's Oakland, 5)Reckless in Vegas (*WIN) @ Sweetwater Music Hall 6) RASA BOUNCE (*WIN) @ Club 1220, 7) Jay and the Americans (*WIN) @ Yoshi's Oakland 8)Taylor Dayne (*WIN) @ Yoshi's SF, & 9)Ras Attitude with Scottie Onedrop Valpey & the Escort Service Band and Rusty Zinn & His Band (*WIN) @ Ashkenaz... #hotnight

Saturday evening, before you head out for the night, stop by JAMMIN ON HAIGHT at 5pm for a CD signing and a meet & sparkle with the POLYRYTHIMICS before their show at The Boom Boom Room while they get geared up in new tie-dyes! Everyone that buys a CD gets 10% off all Jammin Online sales and a VIP pass to the Boom Boom Room... not to mention, free glitter!!!

Then get your Saturday night going! Heading East across the bay is sounding worthwhile for the likes of the red-headed stranger, Mr WILLIE NELSON & his family, (you know who you are Lukas fans) at the Greek in Berkeley! We should be back in the city just in time to catch the POLYRYTHIMICS at Boom Boom Room (*WIN). Though I HIGHLY recommend, if you can get to the BBR earlier, be sure nore to miss the BLUBBA BROTHERS!

Sunday come down to THE LOOKING GLASS POP-UP COSTUME STORE at Second Act in Upper Haight! (1727 Haight Street, SF, CA) ONE day only!   Hosted by Wendy Hannah and friends! This store only pops up every few months and festival season is upon us! Hundreds of costumes and headpieces from vintage Vegas shows. So many sparkles, rhinestones, feathers and glamour bits. Upcycled pieces perfect for festival and burning man events.  Don't miss the unicorn hats and mermaid outfits. Speaking of sparkles, you might even find some of us BISS crew all costumed up and welcoming you in the door, namely myself and Miss Tenderloin Princess.

And then it is off to catch night 3 of DARK STAR ORCHESTRA... wonder if the saying will hold true...."never miss a Sunday show...."
