BISS 08.30.07 : Don't miss SOULIVE Next Week & WILL BERNARD This Weekend @ 12 Galaxies!!

I know many of you will not be reading this until you get back from Burning Man. I hope you had a great time and are recovering well. For the rest of you, dont worry we have plenty to do here in town! Be sure to make note that the Soul Live show next week has been moved to 12 Galaxies. (yes -your tickets are still good)

TWO LOCAL BAND SHOWS FOR YOUR CALENDAR:

1) One of my favorite local bands, Monophonics, is coming out with their first album in the next week! Be sure to check them out on September 8th at the Elbo Room and get your copy!

2) Two more favorite bands are playing at the Elbo Room on September 29th - Parallel 23 with Kapakahi opening. This will be a great way to finish off your night after you get back from the earlier show you choose to go to that day!

Wait until you scroll down and see how many great shows are coming up!! The only downside is that there are so many good ones and only one of me!!
