BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.30.14 - CHRIS ROBINSON / ALAN PARSONS / KATDELIC / ORGONE vs. MONOPHONICS / HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!

Hey BISS Listers!! It is HOT OUT THERE this week...like NOLA hot! Wait, let's not get the FOMO started.... It's OK though, cause while Jazz fest is going on in New Orleans (Did you check out the NOLA BISS List?), we still have a lot to celebrate being in the best city ever...where I can write the BISS List from the beach under the Golden Gate Bridge !

Tonight, on this lovely Wednesday we got some options... after looking at the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge all day we might want to just drive over it to the North Bay where MICHAEL FRANTI and members of RATDOG & ALO are playing at Sweetwater. It's a benefit for his foundation,  Do It For the Love. Also in the North Bay at Terrapin Crossroads, CHRIS ROBINSON is playing the first of his three night run.  But watch out, both those shows might be SOLD OUT! Have no fear, LONESOME LOCOMOTIVE is tearing up the Boom Boom Room in the city (*WIN)!

Thursday night, besides AFROLICIOUS (*WIN) getting their groove on every Thursday (while it lasts) at the Elbo Room, we have the ALAN PARSONS PROJECT at Yoshi's SF! Plus back to back good stuff as always at the Boom Boom Room with Jelly Bread opening followed by The Quick & Easy Boys (*WIN).

In the city on Friday, we put on our best funky kat ears and welcome home our friend RONKAT with his band KATDELIC from Jazz Fest at The Boom Boom Room going to the wee hours of the morning. #splitmybrain

We're gonna start Friday night early in the city at OFF THE GRID, to get some good food and good music with another Guitarfish soon-to-be-fave, THE GREASE TRAPS!

Also on Friday, ALAN PARSONS moves to Yoshi's in Oakland (*WIN). Guitarfish Music Festival favorite SAMBADÁ, is at the Hopmonk in Novato (*WIN)!  Or maybe you wanna *WIN* a pair of tickets to see English Beat on one of the two nights they are playing at Hopmonk Sebastopol!

Saturday afternoon, get your derby on and sit back with a mint julep to watch the Run For The Roses! Congrats to our friends on 30 years of the best Derby party in town!!

Saturday night, there are no other options to consider then the Fillmore for MONOPHONICS VS ORGONE!  Both of these bands have been BISS funk favorites since waaaaay back!! The two of them together on the same stage will should NOT be missed!! This is why I say that there is no such thing as FOMO!!!

Sunday, everyone is celebrating Cinco De Mayo one day early with events and parties all over town! Wondering where to end your Sunday after a day of celebration? BISS says it should be for Return of the Cypher at The Boom Boom Room featuring DJ Kevvy Kev!! Plus its FREE!  HAPPY CINCO MAYO!!
