BISS 05.14.09 - The Dead/Soulive/Zigaboo/Charlie Hunter Trio/ AND Joshua Tree Music Festival!!

As you can see by the subject, there are MANY choices this weekend. We couldn't even fit them all in there but hopefully you will find something you like in the calendar listings below.

Who else is heading with me on the party bus tonight for The Dead @ Shoreline?

Tomorrow night, my plan is to stop by the Independent for Soulive and then over to Pier 23 for Zigaboo's CD Release Party for his new release, Funk Me Hard! (*One more *WIN* pair available!) Congrats to Ryan S. & Robert M.! Might make a little detour at Yoshi's SF for Socket in the lounge... And maybe some Charlie Hunter while I am there. (*WIN* tonight!!)

Saturday should be a beautiful day for Oysterfest at Fort Mason with Michael Franti, Greyboy Allstars, Shantytown, & Poor Man's Whiskey.

And don't forget... Joshua Tree Music Festival is finally upon us this weekend! Be sure to support our local faves like Materialized who are performing on Saturday afternoon and Monophonics who are performing on Sunday afternoon. Congrats to Sherylita & also to Xochitl who won the pairs of tickets for the weekend!

The Joshua Tree festivals are produced by a family of friends and funsters convinced that music is the soul of life, and that art enriches and saves lives. That the experience is enhanced when embraced in the great outdoors amongst fellow music lovers. Better still in an intimate setting, where the distinction between artist and audience is blurred, and a passionate performance can be truly relished in close proximity to the stage. Add FREE water to patrons, no service charges on reasonably priced tickets, and well.....let the games begin. http://www.joshuatreemusicfestival.com/


We are looking for testimonials from YOU. So we are going to do the ticket contests a little differently. If you are a fan, tell us why you subscribe to BISS List. If you are an artist who we support, tell us why you like working with BISS. First (and best) response wins! Please let us know which of the shows that say **Win Tickets** you would like to win.
