BISS 05.21.09 - Getting ready for 31st Harmony Fest!!/ BB King/The Blue Up Ball/Carnaval

It looks like I get to mark one of those artists I have always wanted to see off my list tonight. BB King is playing at the Fillmore!

Other options tonight include...Kings of Leon @ Bill Graham Civic, Afrolicious @ The Elbo Room, The Roux Trio featuring Audio Angel (love her!) & JOHNNY SKETCH & The Dirty Notes @ The Boom Boom Room (*WIN*)

Friday night...I am going over the bridge to Ashkenaz (*WIN*) for Montana Slim String Band, Chris Haugen's Seahorse Rodeo with Wally Ingram, & Tom Freund. Then journey over to the Shattuck Down Low for Jazz Mafia's Stevie Wonder vs. James Brown(*WIN*). If you are in the city for the evening, I strongly recommend that you check out NOMO @ Bottom of the Hill.

Saturday night...The Blue Up Ball (*WIN*) with The New Up and Blue Turtle Seduction at the Independent, then Boom Boom Room for Wil Blades!(*WIN*).

If you are looking for something to do during the daylight hours, Carnval is happening on Harrison street from 10a to 5p both Saturday and Sunday. There are two stages at 17th and 22nd. How can I be at the 17th Street stage for Sambada @ 3pm Sunday and also at the 22nd street stage @ 3pm Sunday for Bayonics!? http://www.carnavalcity.com/SF/Festival

And Monday, catch Jazz Mafia's tribute to Miles Davis at Yoshi's!

Mark your calendar for 6/17 for the next BISS Bar night at the Fishbowl for Elie's Funky Wednesday, with Drink Specials (really good ones) and Funk Tunes. Bring your iPod or just help Elie DJ! (every 3rd Wednesday of every month)

BISS is gearing up for the 31st Annual Harmony Festival coming up the weekend of June 12th - June 14th. This is the third year we are sponsoring the Techno Tribal dance.
