BISS 12.03.09 - Black Crowes, Kapakahi, Eric McFadden Trio, BISS Hip Hop Night at Pier 23

I hear the Black Crowes shows have been awesome this week. I hope to make it to at least one of those shows before the week is out. We had a blast last night at the Duane Allman tribute show at the Boom Boom Room! Even members of the Black Crowes sat in. But a few of us are paying for it today, aren't we?

So looks like another busy weekend starting tonight (Thurs) with: TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. @ Boom Boom Room, SHAKE WELL @ Eagle Tavern, Afrolicious, with Pleasuremaker and Senior Oz @ Elbo Room, The Grease Traps and BuildOn presents "A Holiday Benefit: Music For The Kids" @ The Independent, Less Than Jake, with Fishbone , Cage and The Swellers @ The Regency Ballroom, Taj Mahal Trio @ Yoshi's Oakland, JAZZ MAFIA PRESENTS: REALISTIC ORCHESTRA @ Yoshi's SF AND Turkish Neapolitan Project, GERARDO BALESTRIERI with members of THE FISHTANK ENSEMBLE @ Ashkenaz

Continuing on Friday night with more hard choices to make with:
BISS Hip Hop Night hosted by Germane (DJ ISM, Scojourners, Amy Serrata, Child Hood Almuni) @ Pier 23
The Black Crowes @ The Fillmore
Kapakahi @ The Rockit-Room
DRAGON SMOKE, Ronkat & KATDELIC @ The Independent,
Eric McFadden Trio and Sistas in the Pit @ Starry Plough
Taj Mahal Trio @ Yoshi's Oakland
Garrin Benfield @ Giordano Bros
RED ROOSTER (& NAUGHTY DONKEY) Boom Boom Room
Raw Deluxe @ Coda Jazz and Supper Club
Brazilian Night, FORRO BRAZUCA / SAMBA DE RAIZ @ Ashkenaz

Saturday I am thinking I should try to check out the Black Crowes though it's totally SOLD OUT so maybe Sunday? I will definitely go to see Tracorum @ Boom Boom Room for the late night. Is anyone going to see the Cranberries at The Regency? What about the other 5 shows on the BISS list for Saturday night? (scroll down to check it out)

For our East Coast BISS Listers who are looking for something to do in addition to Phish at MSG, check out this lineup for the Rock The Resort show at the Hudson Valley Resort: KRS-One, Lettuce, Melvin Seals & JGB, The Original Radioactive, Break Science (feat. Adam Deitch), Dumpstaphunk, Eric Krasno & Chapter 2, The Glitch Mob, Hot Day at the Zoo Roots of Creation, Rubblebucket, Rustic Overtones, Skerik, The Trapps, Trevor Hall, Tyrone Wells, Zach Deputy AND MORE... http://www.paperchaserproductions.com/tickets.htm

Remember to start your weekends out right every Friday night in December with BISS on Pier 23's heated & covered deck. Take in a beautiful view of the bay and dance to local jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, and hard rock. Come every week to get them all! JUST added: 4th Fridays every month 2010!!

BISS SPONSORED EVENTS
• Running from Nov 19 through Dec 20th: The Global Film Initiative presents The Global Lens film series which can be seen in more than 35 locations across the United States and Canada and is impacting lives around the world.

"The Global Lens film series opens us to a larger world; a world where other realities, forces at large, values and survival instincts prevail. In this world, people triumph on a daily basis against the odds or deal with the grim truths of their world," Siegel said about the series. "Thanks to Global Lens, the world is smaller and our understanding of it is much larger."
