BISS 04.15.09 - Derek Trucks & Jackie Green / Tracorum / Topaz / TLG

We really wanted to get BISS out early this week so we didn't miss telling you about Derek Trucks & Jackie Greene @ The Regency tonight. You can also catch a new BISS favorite, Bhi Bhiman tonight performing at the Red Devil Lounge.

Thursday is the legendary B.B. King at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Though I am not sure I will make it but would LOVE to check that out!

Friday, I am still deciding between Tracorum at BBR, Loop!Station's CD release Party at Yoshi's & Tea Leaf Green at The Fillmore.

Saturday, I am going to the amazing 50 piece Jazz Mafiz Symphony @ The Palace of Fine Arts featuring Realistic Orchestra, The Shotgun Wedding Quintet and Hip-Hop Symphony, Brass Mafia, Supertaster plus Dublin, Joe Bagale, Karyn Paige, Aima the Dreamer, Gedeon, Seneca, Chris McGee and special guests.

If you see a show listed that says **Win Tickets**, just be the first to reply with a new sign up for the list (Name & Email). Please only submit new subscribers who WANT to be added to the list.
