BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 05.07.15 - BIG SAM'S FUNKY NATION / CORNFLOWER / GREYHOUNDS / HUSH FEST: SANTA CRUZ LIGHTHOUSE / DUB MISSION!

Happy Anniversary BISS Listers!! Actually, what I mean to say is Happy Anniversary to my husband Bo.  You all know him as the guy who answers your tickets requests! I know him as the fabulous human being who rocks my world! Can't wait to celebrate 9 years of marriage and 15 years together when I get back home! #love

So how's life there in the SF Bay? Welcome home to those of you who just spent time at NOLA Jazz Fest.  I know it was nothing short of glorious from eating to music to every other minute of the day! I have been told that SF represented hard core down there the entire time! #welldone #liketherewasanydoubt There is a lot going on this week there at home but since there is #nosuchthingasfomo, I am not missing out, I am just somewhere else.  And I can rest assured that you can all hold it down until I get back!


Have you had enough of NOLA yet? #never!! Good! Because tonight, Thursday, May 7th, you've got two New Orleans bands in the city. Start with BIG SAM'S FUNKY NATION at The Chapel **WIN TICKETS**. Then end at the Boom Boom Room with FLOWTRIBE **WIN TICKETS**.


Looking for something sweeter & more intimate? How about EMMYLOU HARRIS & RODNEY CROWELL at The Fillmore? Emmylou isn't the only Grammy award winning artist in town tonight. DWIGHT YOAKAM is at Regency Ballroom.


On Friday, 5/8, join Cornflower as he takes his spring tour to the Bay Area peninsula in San Carlos, CA in support of his new live album #AnEveningWithCornflower. This will be Cornflower's first solo show EVER in the Bay Area. This is a house concert. Location & Event Details announced to ticket buyers only.http://cornflowermusic.com/20150508-aewc-ca-sancarlos/


In the East Bay on Friday, Leo's has a great lineup with GREYHOUNDS, SAL'S GREENHOUSE, & EAST BAY BRASS BAND **WIN TICKETS**. Then THE HEAVY PETS are back for two nights at Boom Boom Room **WIN TICKETS**!

On Saturday night, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS are at The Fillmore for the first of two nights. Those of you who didn't make it across the bridge on Friday night, have a second chance to catch GREYHOUNDS in the city at Brick & Mortar **WIN TICKETS**.


If you are up in the Petaluma area, I highly recommend ACHILLES WHEEL & THE INCUBATORS at Zodiacs on Saturday **WIN TICKETS**.


What a busy Sunday in the Bay area from way down south to way up north. If you are down in Santa Cruz, don't miss HUSHconcerts and Raindance present: HUSH FEST: SANTA CRUZ LIGHTHOUSE w/ LITTLE JOHN, GORDO CABEZA, SMASHELTOOTH, MOTION POTION, ALABASTER KANE, DJ MANCUB, THE PIRATE, & U9LIFT at Santa Cruz Lighthouse Point Park!


Up in Petaluma, INCIDENTAL ANIMALS featuring Members of ALO & The String Cheese Incident are at McNear's Mystic. It's your third chance to catch them in the North Bay or first if you didn't buy your tickets on time for the two shows at Terrapin on the 7th and 8th.


Here in the city on Sunday, DUB MISSION at Elbo Room is the pick of the night. It's the Bay Area's longest-running reggae dance party withDJ SEP & special guest NICK DAGGER spinning dub, roots reggae, dancehall, remixes & more. FREE bef 9:30/$6 after.
