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...
