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.
