BISS 2.11.10 - Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Fat Tuesday!!

Happy Valentine's Day BISS Listers!!! Because of all the love you have all shown us here at BISS List, the venues and bands are showing us more love

with more free tickets for you! Some weeks we have so many submissions from you about why you LOVE BISS list that we don't have a chance to get a

personal response out to each of you. So we are going to be sure that we list the winner's names in the calendar listings below next to each show.

Tonight, we are going to start out "mellow" with songwriter's night at Biscuits & Blues for Biss Artist Tom Freund (9pm). Then we are going to funk it

up with the Afrolicious Latin Funk dance party at the Elbo Room featuring Pleasuremaker and Senior Oz (**WIN)

Friday, BISS is going to stop by Merl's Birthday & Valentine's party at Slim's because we miss him & want to show our love! Then we are off to the

Rock-it-Room to catch The Staxx Brothers opening for Kev Choice. Next on to Jacob Fred Jazz Odessy at Coda Jazz and Supper Club. Then its time to put

on our kat ears and head to KATDELIC (of 'P FUNK ALLSTARS') at Boom Boom Room! Seriously - don't forget to wear your KAT ears!

Saturday, we're heading to the Indy for the second of Two Nights with Leftover Salmon then The Fillmore area for A Not So Valentine's Day with Punk Funk

Mob in the Lounge at Yoshi's an then to KATDELIC at Boom Boom Room.

Sunday is Valentine's Day. Show your sweetie you care with some great live music or go out and shake your single ass! Check out JIMMY LESLIE'S

Monday, don't forget about Felonious Live City Revue @ Coda. (*WIN)
