BISS This Week and Beyond... (as of 01.31.07)

Ladies and Gentleman!!! The word has gotten out now about the BISS list. A friend of mine just started managing a restaurant and jazz club. They are looking to break out into other types of music (beyond jazz) and make this place into a hot spot for live music and brilliantly have enlisted the help of The BISS List. I am looking for local bands to fill some slots in feb (and march and so on). Please email me back if you are a musician (or know musicians) who might be interested!!! Better yet send me a press kit or web site link to music clips.

Now on to the week at hand… Oh wait – comments on last weekend! Skerik at the BBR was OUT OF HAND both nights going on WAY past 2 and 3 am – just for the record!!!! OK now on to the week at hand…

The JenCat Pick of the weekend: Mike Dillon's Go Go Jungle @ 12 Galaxies on Friday!!!

Friday night there are too many choices to get to them all! But as usual – I will sure try! We’ve got one of our BISS Local Favorites, The Monophonics, at the Elbo Room. Since they are the opener, I think I can catch them if I head there first to start out my night. Then we have to decide between either Mike Dillon’s Go Go Jungle @ 12 Galaxies OR The North Mississippi Allstars at the Independent with Eric McFadden Trio. And of course, where we ALWAYS end up for the end of the night – the Boom Booom Room for Vinyl. Its been a while since I have had a chance to catch Vinyl so I am excited about that one. For those of you going to Zero at the Fillmore – that’s ok – just meet me at the BBR after!

Saturday night, come meet up with us at Andrew Jaeger’s House of Seafood & Condor Club for some GREAT NEW ORLEANS FOOD & DRINK followed by GREAT live music. We’re meeting for drinks in the bar around 8:30 – 9:00. We’ll sit down for dinner around 9:30 so let me know if you are coming so I can count you in. Then we’ll head into the lounge to check out the the band, TRIO 808 at 10:30. Then to finish off our fine New Orleans evening, we’ll head over to the Boom Boom for Tab Benoit!
