BISS 1.29.10 - N. Mississippi Allstars / Tracorum & JUICE / Mermen / Greyboy Allstars & Orgone / Faraway Brothers

Wow, there is a lot of great music this weekend all over the Bay Area!

Tonight, those of us in Marin are going to Eric McFadden and the Faraway Brothers at 19 Broadway. While those of us further north, near Sebastopol, are going to Blane Lyon ( Mama's Cookin' OPENS) at The Hopmonk. (*WIN)

Those of us in the city have tons of choices but looks like we will start at the Boom Boom Room for Tracorum. Then head over to The North Mississippi Allstars for a Dickinson brother jam at The Independent. Then, back to the BBR for New Orleans style last call with JUICE. (*WIN)

Saturday if you are looking for something a little different, a little old school, check out the psychedelic surf rockers The Mermen headlining the Independent. My mission is to see Orgone open at the Fillmore, run over to the the Indy for the can't miss Mermen show, then back to The Fillmore for the end of The Greyboy Allstars. Try it, we dare you!

The weekend isn't over until we get our Sushi & Songwriter's on Sunday!! Join the BISS fam for dinner and take in Singer Songwriter short rotating sets featuring Biss artist Valerie Orth, as well as Alexis Harte, and Rachel Efron. Post dessert grab a cab and head to Thee Parkside for Eric McFadden Trio and Bhi Bhiman.

BISS 1.22.10 - Matthew Hansen & The SHE'S / Kapakahi / Zigaboo/ Bayonics / Singer Songwriter Sundays

Last weekend was awesome not finishing until Monday night with an outstanding Rebirth show at Mojito! Hopefully we are all recovered enough to make it out tonight to Pier 23 for the first BISS night of 2010 on the enclosed & heated deck.

We have a great BISS Night lined up this Friday @ Pier 23, with blues rock guitar virtuoso, Matthew Hansen. (*WIN*) Be sure to get there early to catch the opening band, the up and coming all girl punk rock sensation, The SHE'S.

Also Friday night, is a BISS favorite horn players birthday. Celebrate with him & Vinyl at the Boom Boom Room. Happy Birthday Ryan!

And another BISS favorite band, Kapakahi, is at Slim's on Friday night with Still Time & Jahlectrik. (*WIN)

Saturday night, Coda's got the debut performance of our favorite local NOLA drummer, King of the Funky Drums, Zigaboo Modeliste and the New Aahkesstra.(*WIN*) Though, I think we may start the night at the Boom Boom Room to catch that That 1 Guy's set. (*WIN*) You gotta see this!

Sunday night, Bay Vibes & Sonic Zen records presents Songwriter Sundays Unplugged featuring Biss Entertainment Artists: Blane Lyon, Fletcher Nielsen & Derek Brooker from Tracorum, and members of Frobeck. They will be rotating short sets from 8 to 11 but get there before 9 to eat some Sushi! Then head over to Boom Boom Room for Jimmy Leslie & Meteor Z for some funky Zeppelin. (No Cover!)

Also this week is Yo Yo Ma @ Davies, Phoenix @ The Fillmore, B3 Wednesdays featuring Wil Blades @ Coda, The Pink Floyd Experience @ The Fillmore, Bayonics @ Elbo Room, Boca Do Rio...and...

BISS 1.14.10 - Two Nights! Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk / RonKat's Katdelic (x2) / Umphrey's McGee / Styx

It took me a while to even figure out the plans for the next week with so many good shows coming through the Bay Area. I've split myself into 4 to cover the city and surrounding areas.

Tonight, we are starting with Stymie & PJLO and Griddle @ The Rikshaw. Then to The Connecticut Yankee for Kate Gaffney & The Kitchen Sink. I have been hearing great things about this weekly Thursday artist and really want to get over there!

Friday, in the north bay check out Chrome Johnson, the New Project featuring Marcus Scott and Muggin' Liley @19 Broadway. In the East Bay, Afro-Brazilian-Funk, SAMBADA @Ashkenaz (*WIN). In SF, it's KATDELIC (of 'P FUNK ALLSTARS') & DJ K-OS (*WIN) @Boom Boom Room.

Saturday& Sunday is Sunset Promotions presents Two Nights! Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk @The Independent. You can plan the rest of your weekend based on if you want to catch Ivan then Rebirth on Saturday or Rebirth then Ivan on Sunday. Or both. Saturday is sold out so start looking if you want them.

Another stop for Saturday is Umphrey's McGee @ The Regency. Congrats to Jonathan B, Michael S & Nicole W.! Sorry to all the rest who requested. Be sure to get to the Regency early to catch the opener, Cornmeal.

Last call on Saturday is @ Boom Boom Room with Colin Brown Band. (*WIN).

North Bay on Saturday, you have a treat with the debut performance of RonKat's Katdelic @ 19 Broadway. RonKat is a long time BISS List favorite artist so don't miss it! (*WIN)

Sunday, I am torn between choices. I have my new weekly Sushi & Songwriter's in the lounge @ Yoshi's featuring Amie Penwell, BISS Artist Danny Cao & Rebecca Cross, and Joel Murach. It's all unplugged with the artists rotating with short sets. Nice way to end the weekend.

Unless....Your weekend doesn't end on Sunday because you are going back to the Independent for another round of Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk & Rebirth!!(*WIN) You could follow that up with Tracorum in North beach at Mojito.

Or....you are going to the Regency for Styx! That's right Styx. And we have a pair of tickets to giveaway. (*WIN - see contest rules below)

And unless...you are going to stretch it out to Monday night like we are. And really end the weekend in North Beach with all kinds of music in various venues, starting with Mike Olmos @ Grant & Green.

Then get ready for next week...
