BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 06.26.14 - LEE FIELDS / KATDELIC / HAPPY PRIDE / HAPPY HIGH SIERRA / HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Happy Pride! Happy High Sierra! Happy Fourth of July!

My apologies that this is coming to you later than usual for this week but I am actually just very early for next week... I am even earlier still if I cover the week AFTER High Sierra Music Festival.  High Sierra is my most favorite festival on the planet, well second favorite after Guitarfish Music Festival of course! We'll get into High Sierra in just a few.  For now...let us stay present, here, in the moment, in the Bay Area... at least through the weekend.

Just for fun, I asked what some of YOU are doing the next two weeks and here's some of your answers: beach beach beach beach beach beach reggae reggae reggae reggae reggae reggae, waking up and breathing, moe. on Saturday in Santa Rosa, Joan Jett July 6 Marin County Fair & Treasure Island Flea.

Here's what I am thinking...

Tonight, Friday night, LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS are at The Fillmore (Congrats to Nicole, Nancy, Andrew, & Daniel)! Many of you probably remember him from High Sierra last year. That was a super fun set at the Vaudeville Stage that so many seem to remember, myself included. Oh sorry, wasn't going to talk about High Sierra yet...

Then again, while we're on the topic of the Vaudeville Stage at High Sierra, make note that a local long time BISS favorite, KATDELIC, will be playing on that very stage on Sunday, July 6th!  If you can't wait til next Sunday or not making it to High Sierra, that's ok cause you can catch Katdelic at the Boom Boom Room tonight. Get there early so you don't miss the opening band, THE EARFUL PLUS *DJ KEVVY KEV* (*WIN).

Saturday June 28-29, 2014 is The 44th Annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade! On Saturday, June 28 at Civic Center Plaza Noon to 6:00 p.m. Then on Sunday, June 29 at Civic Center 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  The Parade is Sunday, June 29 Along Market Street. It kicks off at 10:30 a.m. and runs from Beale to 8th St. The 2014 Theme is Color Our World with Pride.

Saturday night, after a little rest from our day at Pride, we will be starting the night at the Drive-in at Old Hamilton Theater Building in Novato for HITCH NIGHT with Alfred Hitchcock's VERTIGO! (My only challenge being that "drive" part of the drive-in without a car...)  This is a drive-up movie night projected onto a wall in a paved lot -- if you want to sit outside your car, bring blankets and lawn chairs. The movie starts after a short pre-show and trailers, just like a real theater! There is a 15 minute Intermission halfway through the show. Concessions and raffle tickets are available during pre-show and intermission only! Please arrive prior to start time to get a good parking spot. No cars after the show begins, please - but walk-ins are welcome!

We should make it after back to the city after the movie just in time for CHUM (PHISH TRIBUTE BAND) at Boom Boom Room (*WIN)!

Sunday, it's back to the Boom Boom Room for Return of the Cypher *Freestyle Hip-Hop * with DJ Kevvy Kev (FREE).

On Monday, it's Chris Robinson Brotherhood: A Benefit for Seva with The Fall Risk, Corinne West & Wavy Gravy at McNear's Mystic Theatre in Petaluma. In the East Bay on Monday, it's night two of The Winery Dogs (Richie Kotzen - vocals and guitar, Billy Sheehan - bass and vocals), Mike Portnoy - drums and vocals).

Then Wednesday, 7/2, while I am setting up camp in the Sierras, you might be at KISS and Def Leppard at Concord Pavilion. Or maybe you'll be at SAP in San Jose with CHER & SPECIAL GUEST CYNDI LAUPER!

Thursday, I'll be working & playing & dancing to the likes of...Widespread Panic, STS9, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Beats Antique, Trampled By Turtles, Lord Huron, The Del McCoury Band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Lettuce, Punch Brothers, Greensky Bluegrass, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Hard Working Americans, Darkwave (Medeski, Skerik & Deitch), The Budos Band, Incidental Animals, The Polish Ambassador w/ a special appearance by Wildlight, Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Travelin' McCourys, Bill Frisell - GUITAR IN THE SPACE AGE! featuring Greg Leisz, Tony Scherr & Kenny Wollesen, Ernest Ranglin & Avila, Nahko and Medicine For The People, Stanley Jordan Trio, Bombino, Typhoon, Jonathan Wilson, Boombox, The Floozies , Dopapod, Shakey Graves, The Duhks, The California Honeydrops, Turkuaz, Avi Buffalo, Ashleigh Flynn & The Back Porch Majority, Hey Marseilles,, Afrolicious,Scott Pemberton,RonKat Spearman's Katdelic, SambaDa..and more!

Meanwhile back here in the Bay...

On Friday 7/4, Happy Fourth of July! After the fireworks, head to the Boom Boom Room where TURKUAZ, fresh off their first High Sierra, will make their own fireworks as they light up the place with the funk! (*WIN)

On Saturday, 7/5, Fillmore St Jazz Fest brings you KATDELIC, Kim Nalley, Camenos Flamencos, SF Swingfest and many more all day long! Finish up the afternoon with STEPPIN playing for FREE at Boom Boom Room.

On Saturday night, (7/5), THE FRESH & ONLYS, COLD BEAT, & DEVON WILLIAMS play The Chapel (*WIN) here in the city. While The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra, Directed by Scotty Barnhart, plays night one of two at Yoshi's in Oakland.

During the day Sunday, 7/6, in the city, it's day two of The Fillmore Street Jazz Festival. Finish your Sunday afternoon with Big Blu Soul Revue playing for FREE in the lounge at Yoshi's.

In the north bay on Sunday afternoon, MOONALICE plays at Sweetwater for FREE at 3pm.

Monday, 7/7, I'll be loading out and cleaning up after the festival in a total blissful & exhausted haze while here in the city, those of you who have rested within the previous week might just make it to the Warfield for night one of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds with Mark Lanegan.

Tuesday, 7/8, while I am somewhere between Quincy, Truckee, & SF, some of you will probably be at night one of Steely Dan at Mountain Winery.

Wednesday, 7/9, MOONALICE plays for free at Union Square at 12:30pm, Steely Dan plays in Saratoga for a second night, and STU ALLEN plays his weekly Grateful Dead Night at Ashkenaz (WIN).

Hopefully by 7/10, I am back and getting you your next installment of your (almost) weekly BISS List!!
