BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.24.14 - STRING CHEESE / MATERIALIZED / YOUNGBLOOD BRASS BAND / SKERIK / BOY GEORGE / NOLA JAZZ FEST!

Happy Jazz Fest & Happy String Cheese! I know that for most of you, it's one of those two options this weekend... But I am here to tell you there is SOOOOO much more!! BISS!!

OK, so fine, let's start with NOLA JAZZ FEST... If you know, then you know! But if you don't know, we just put out The NOLA BISS - JAZZ FEST 2014 SPECIAL EDITION!!! It's only a short list of the many many night shows in New Orleans over the next two weeks.  And yes, you can even *WIN TICKETS* from BISS for NOLA shows!
Check it out: http://t.co/0HKJ3FyupI#nosuchthingasfomo

OK, moving on to STRING CHEESE... Not that I wanna spread the word and make it MORE of a mad house, but did you hear they are playing at Amoeba Music on Haight at 2pm Thursday?? Not to mention the three shows this weekend at The Fox in Oakland on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights?!

So...what else, you may ask, is happening this weekend in BISSlandia?

Friday night, there are 13 other shows listed aside from STRING CHEESE & JAZZ FEST!

We are looking to finally get up north on Friday night to check out Zodiacs in Petaluma and see longtime favorite BISS band, MATERIALIZED (*WIN)!! It sounds like we might have a crew forming from the city to caravan up there together. Why not? It's an awesome band at an awesome venue! Perfect Friday night! That being said, the need for car repairs may keep me down here in the city. (**hint hint, plus one for a ride?)

Top BISS pick here in the city of San Francisco on Friday? YOUNGBLOOD BRASS BAND (*WIN) plus Guitarfish & BISS fave, WILL MAGID HOT FIVE OPENS at The Chapel!

Yes, there's TONS more on Friday, from  PHIL LESH to LES NUBIANS, but that's why we have the calendar for your reference below...

Saturday, if we haven't made it back from Petaluma, it's because we stayed for NEW MONSOON at Zodiacs (*WIN)!

Staying here in the city on Saturday? SKERIK's *BANDALABRA* (w/ members of McTuff) are playing at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).  How late can we keep SKERIK playing before he has to get on a plane to Jazz Fest? He plays for Boom Boom Room Presents again the very next day in New Orleans! If you are in NOLA and missing SKERIK here in SF, no worries! You can see SKERIK on Sunday for BOOM BOOM ROOM PRESENTS: WORSHIP MY ORGAN featuring MARCO BENEVENTO, SKERIK, ROBERT WALTER, DJ LOGIC, & ADAM DEITCH at Blue Nile @ 9pm.

Sunday, will be many a BISS Lister's day of rest. Unless, of course, you're at Jazz Fest. There are no days of rest at Jazz Fest! #threesongrule

Back here in SF, we will be gearing up for Throwback Monday... BOY GEORGE at The Fillmore!
