Howdy BISS Listers! Have you missed me? Jazz Fest was epic as always! In case you missed my big thank you on FB, it is worth repeating...
Thank you New Orleans, Louisiana for another amazing #JazzFest. We worked hard, we played hard. We're going home to crash hard.
Special thanks to Sarita LaTigra w/ Meet the Band. BISS List and Meet the Band took #NOLA #JazzFest2018 night show promotions to the next level with 45+ members on the street team who distributed 80,000+ handbills for 30+. Not to mention online promotion of 200+ shows, 40 of which had ticket giveaways.
Thanks to The Howlin' Wolf, Stu, Tack and Howie Kaplan, Boom Boom Room Presents, Zander, Arya, Amelie, Billy Bradford Ruckus, NOLAFUNK & CEG, Live For Live Music, Bayou Rendezvous, Jennifer and Jeff Coriell. Pleasure to work with you all again to bring all the music to the masses!!
Thanks to BISS List Street Team and Meet the Band New Orleans Street Teamand all the BISS List subscribers and online followers for your support in getting the word out!!
A very special thanks to Casa Paula and Sweet Paulita for our NOLA home away from home.
And of course, THANK YOU my favorite person & fabulous boyfriend and travel companion Spor, for making every moment, even the tough ones, memorable & wonderfully awesome!
I had intended to work on this week's BISS List on Tuesday but last minute found myself at the Fillmore for Sammy Hagar's Acoustic-4-A-Cure: with a special 76th birthday celebration for blues icon Taj Mahal, and featuring Bob Weir, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony, Kevin Cronin, Eddie Money and Vic Johnson. #HappyBirthdayTaj!
I worked a loooong day at my favorite new job on Wednesday and thought about waiting until Thursday to put this together but then I realized I am going to Blue Bear School of Music LIVE 2018: A Special Edition of Renee & Irish Greg's Pop UP featuring: Jane Wiedlin (The Go Go's) & Pietro Straccia at The Haight Street Art Center on Thursday right after work. (5:30 - 9:30)
Knowing that it ends early, makes me think I might be able to make it to Sweetwater on Thursday as well for Louisiana Love Act featuring Phil Colombatto, Mark Karan, Mookie Siegel, Wally Ingram, Robin Sylvester, and the LA Horns (from Aretha Franklin & Marvin Gaye bands) + Special Guests at Sweetwater Music Hall **WIN TICKETS**.
All that being said, this has got to get done and to you before all that... So here I am at 1am trying to "whip" this out to you...
I pulled the "BEST" of shows from today, 5/17 thru 5/30 and have listed them for you below.
My own personal plans are mostly based on celebrating Spor's birthday which is this Saturday, 5/19. Happy Birthday Spor!!
He is much more of a PUNK rocker than a FUNK rocker but we will still likely end up getting funky with California Honeydrops at The Fillmore on Saturday night. **WIN TICKETS**
Though, truth be told, we would probably be hitting up "Weird Al" Yankovic at The Fox for his birthday on Saturday if it wasn't a SOLD OUT show.
Monday, I get one of my long-time favorites, John Popper, playing at Sweetwater. **WIN TICKETS**
Then on Wednesday, Spor's birthday celebration continues with a long time fave of his, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at The Fillmore.
Thursday, I would LOVE to catch Tank and the Bangas with The Seshen at The Fillmore.
Friday, I would LOVE to catch New Mastersounds at Sweetwater. **WIN TICKETS**
Next weekend is full of all kinds of good stuff including MIDTOWN SOCIAL, The Revivalists, Steel Pulse, Eric McFadden, and St. Paul & The Broken Bones. Not to mention that the festival season kicks off with Bottlerock, Lightning In a Bottle, and California Roots!
Then when we get back in town on Monday (Happy Memorial Day), we are faced with choosing between Motet at Sweetwater or George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic at The Independent that night.
Thankfully, they added a second night on Tuesday for P-funk at Indy so we can push that out a night....
I am exhausted just creating that schedule, so I am calling it a night...
On to the....
