BISS Featured Shows: Techno Tribal Dance @ Harmony Festival

BISS IS PROUD TO BE A SPONSOR OF

MYSTIC BEAT LOUNGE'S

TECHNO TRIBAL COMMUNITY DANCE 

@ The 9th Annual Harmony Festival Saturday Night

**WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS!!***

The jewel in the crown of the North Bay dance scene returns to Grace Pavilion this June 7th. From house music to breakbeats and conscious hip hop to world music, there is once again something for late night beat-seekers of all persuasions. And yet with a line up of six varied dance DJs and live acts, there is more than great music to grace attendees: There is vibe, tribe and ambiance. All night performers spin, twirl and swirl overhead as contrails of fire and pixels dominate your mindscape in a visual festooning of walls, chillspaces, stages and more! The stage itself is virtually set alight with ballet-point fire troupe Luminesque along with the wildly creative contortions and theatrical antics of trapeze-jacking, side-show stealing hooligans Vau de Vire Society. There is also live painting by Alex Grey, Holistic Hooping, massage, art installations and vendors to complete the immersion.

The evening begins when the first note is cracked and DJ Dragonfly rolls out a carpet of chilled-out funky grooves, thereby setting the beginnings of all-night bodies in motion.

The late night love affair continues into the evening as Bay Area rising stars BLVD mack up the floor with a bumpin' repartee of live-meets-electronica. Featuring drums, guitar, keys, samplers and MC SoulEye, the music is the sounds of organic live performance, at the intersection of breakbeat and house.

Following suite and nicing up the night is turntablist, groove jockey and producer RJD2. His sets are a vinyl lockdown of original tunes that deliver a filigree of textured groove over a density of bass: Subsonic frequencies kiss the sweet spot and send a nod to the ensuing at-the-ready, righteous rough-up of groove-meets-skills.

Next up is the collective wisdom of Heavyweight Dub Champion and the unified message of MCs and vocalists A.P.O.S.T.L.E., Stero Lion and Jillian Ann; plus the analogue voice of beatsmiths Patch, Totter and Grant. Bassbins forge new identities through merging the nu skool ethos of conscious hip hop with an old skool inflection. Tweaky, glitchy, rubbery and truly original, these guys will leave you in the clutch and drop you in the moment.

This year also celebrates the return of producer and DJ Freq Nasty. His original barnstorming reggae and dubwise breakbeats are the daredevilishly bombastic sonic sleights of hand that'll bust the crusts of the most stalwart and stubborn dance floor naysayers!

And at the final helm of this magic carpet ride of an evening is Cheb I Sabbah, The Godfather of the world music scene, who turns speaker cabinets into an Aladdin's cave of mystic gems. Expect your descent to Earth to be eased with trans-global grooves that lusciously hold fast with persuasive grip and tuck you in to bliss. http://techno-tribal.com/

Afrolicious at the Elbo Room : Thursday, May 22nd. ***WIN TICKETS!!***

Afrolicious sets out to pay respect and homage to the rhythm's of the Afro-diaspora with a heavy bump, a swing, an infectious groove. The sounds come from the global village and include but are not limited to : Afro-Beat, Afro-Cuban, Latin funk, Afro-Brasiliero, Global funk, Balkan beats, Jamaican riddims, Afro-Disco, global breakbeats and electronic music that has drawn clearly on the sounds of the afro-diaspora.

“…The Afrolicious parties began in the winter of 2006 in the dimly lit red-light basement of a mid-western bar in Lawrence Kansas where folks from all walks of life and corners of the globe flocked to hear the global sounds that are so hard to hear in the midwest region. The parties began as an extension to a radio show called Latin Lab by DJ's Los and Cheo a.k.a. Pleasuremaker, that fused sounds of the Latin Diaspora spanning seven plus decades and countless sub-genres and rythms from all over Latin America, the US, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The party continued to overflow the intimate Tap Room and had to be moved to a much higher capacity spot where it consistently packed the joint. Now Afrolicious continues in San Francisco, CA with regular parties happening in the Bay Area and will spread eastward to NYC and northbound for Portland, OR, as well as South to L.A.

"…as gritty as the Texas landscape and funky as an Eastside BBQ joint. Mudphonic blends bottleneck blues guitar with fat saxophone riffs, scrappy vocals with distorted harmonica and lays it all on top of rock solid dance grooves."

Originally born and bred in Austin, TX, it was in New York that Topaz signed his first record deal and began touring nationally. Since then he has released two records with international distribution, composed award winning movie soundtracks, performed on BET and toured extensively across the United States. He has performed with the likes of Norah Jones, The Wailers, Widespread Panic and Robert Randolph. He has played all the major festivals such as Bonaroo, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and Austin City Limits Festival. Check out: http://www.myspace.com/texastopaz

If you're nervous that you might run out of money if you try and fund all your music desires, don't miss the many FREE shows happening around the Bay Area! Jupiter in the East Bay is hosting RAINMAKER on Saturday, May 24th. Rainmaker will be sharing songs off their newly released album, Long Slow Fade, including the track, "Sweetwater Has Run Dry" about the closing of Sweetwater Saloon in Mill Valley, so make sure to check them out. The following week, you can catch the smokin' hot MONOPHONICS, playing to a crowd of thousands at the Union Street Fair's Gough Stage on Saturday, May 31. Finally, a can't miss show for all of us who can't get enough local flavor : The First Annual Battle of the Bands Showcase and Benefit is taking place in Petaluma five consecutive Sundays this month  come out and support the BISS favorite, Monophonics on May 25th. The Five Champions competing in a massive throwdown on Sunday, June 1st. Five bucks OR five cans of food for FIVE bands, that's a virtual freebie! So pack a picnic and grab your friends and head to the Mystic Theatre for any of these fine performances.
