BISS 06.24.09 - David Byrne / Wilco / Skerik & McTuff / Spectrum Festival / Van's Warped Tour

It must be summer because there is so much to do and it ranges from one end of the musical spectrum to the other! And that's not even talking about the options for getting OUT of town next week!

Tonight, I am thinking I have been missing these guys for a while so it's long overdue for an Afrolicious Thursday @ The Elbo Room. Read below for the ticket contest and win the tickets so you can meet me there.

So Friday night you have your range of choices with David Byrne @ The Greek, Jam on the Bay with Stu Allen & Melvin Seals @ PIer 23, Skerik & McTuff (*WIN)@ The Boom Boom, The Spectrum Festival (*WIN) with Major Lazer @ The Regency, and aside from whichever one of those I end up at, I am gonna stop by to see Crackerjack Highway (*WIN) over at the Rockit' Room @ 9pm on my way out for the evening.

Saturday, I think I am going over the bridge to the Greek for Wilco but I'd also like to see Phoenix at the Spectrum Festival (*WIN) @ The Regency as well as Pleasuremaker (*WIN) @ Mojito and Skerik & McTuff (*WIN) @ The Boom Boom Room.
All that being said I don't think I can make it down to Pier 30/32 for The Van's Warped Tour but I am sure at least a few of you will be there to represent BISS.

BISS Entertainment presents Monophonics & Tracorum on July 9th @ The Giants County Fair. And Manicato & Bayonics on July 12th @ The Giants County Fair!! The San Francisco Giants are bringing all the games, food, music, and fun of a county fair to San Francisco, July 9-19, with the first ever Giants County Fair. The Giants County Fair will be located at McCovey Cove in Lot A and will feature over 20 carnival rides (including a ferris wheel, bumper cars, and a haunted mansion), midway games, carnival food, a "Giants Baseball Zone," and live music! www.sfgiants.com/fair **Check back soon for discount code!!

July 11th is Sand By The Ton @ American Steel in Oakland. There will be 4 ELECTRONIC STAGES, 3 LIVE STAGES , 200 TONS OF SAND , 250,000 SQUARE FEET OF SPACE, 1000's OF YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS, 1 CARNIVAL MIDWAY and 5 SWIMMING POOLs!!


See you all at the Shows!
