BISS 10.08.09 - Biss Entertainment Presents Kim Manning / Toubab Krewe / Honey Island Swamp Band / Joshua Tree Roots Music Festival

It is going to be a tough weekend to hide inside the 7 mile square! So much good music in so many places and no where near enough time to reach them all! Perhaps the theme this weekend should be divide and conquer.

Some of you can represent BISS by heading down south to Joshua Tree for The Joshua Tree Roots Festival featuring Greensky Bluegrass, Blue Rodeo, Toubab Krewe, The Sadies, O'Death, Frontier Ruckus, Deer Tick, Porterdavis, Abalone Dots, Marianne Dissard, Alela Diane, Kelly Joe Phelps, Captain Soularcat, Alice Di Micele, Rose's Pawn Shop, and Blue Mountain, plus late night shows with Eric McFadden & Wally Ingram & friends. We still have more tickets to give away!! (*WIN)

The BISS plan this weekend starts with...
Thursday at The Great American Music Hall for Toubab Krewe.

Friday night BISS ENTERTAINMENT presents Kim Manning and Lantz Lazwell @ The Rockit Room!

Saturday we are still debating between Tower of Power @ The Fillmore and Tommy Castro Band @ GAMH (*WIN Tickets & CD's!) to start the night but plan to end up at Robert Walter (*WIN) @ The Boom Boom Room for a cameo on the dance floor.

Sunday we are going to spend the day outside on the Bay with New Orleans style Honey Island Swamp Band (*WIN) @ Pier 23.

Between the rest of you, we should be able to cover the rest of the city with Manicato (*WIN) @ Coda & Foreigner @ The Fillmore on Thursday; 8 Legged Monster @ Coda and Stanley Clarke (*WIN) @ Yoshi's on Friday; and Curtis Bumpy (*WIN) and Bhi Bhiman with The Stone Foxes @ Hotel Utah on Saturday in San Francisco. While those of you in the North Bay could hit Hopmonk Tavern for Great American Taxi on Saturday and KYLE H & ZACH G on Sunday.

You got out to the shows, now tell the Bay Area what you thought! Show your support for BISS Entertainment Artists in the 2009 SF Weekly Best of the Bay Issue. The polls are open and many of your BISS favorites are nominated and need your patronage. Why? BISS!!!
