"Hey hey, come right away, come and join the party every day!" Warm up for Phil's Birthday weekend with Stu Allen and Front St at The Boom Boom Room Thursday night. Stu goes on tour with Darkstar in April, don't miss the chance to see him at this intimate venue!

"Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun." Friday a lot of you will be representing BISS at The Bill Graham Civic Center for Phil Lesh's 70th Birthday Bash featuring Furthur and Friends..."So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat. Try on your wings and find out where it's at". After Phil head Furthur down the Golden Road to the Boom Boom Room for GREAT AMERICAN TAXI featuring Vince Herman of LEFTOVER SALMON.

If you aren't headed to Shakedown street on Friday night, you are probably headed to CODA for Skerdio (*WIN) featuring RadioActive and Skerik. Or maybe you're going to The Indy for Or, the Whale, & The Stone Foxes. (*WIN)

Saturday get ALL funked up with The New Mastersounds and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue with Salvador Santana when they take over The Fillmore. Or go old-school and catch some classic mo-town with Smokey Robinson (Yes, THAT Smokey Robinson) at The Warfield (WIN**). If you missed Skerdio on Friday, you can still catch them on Saturday or just go back for more! (*WIN)

Sunday try a different venue with Maceo Parker at The Palace of Fine Arts. Or come to the lounge @ Yoshi's for Sushis & Singer Songwriter Sunday's! This week Debbie Neigher, Raya Yarbrough, Amity Eliaz.

There's no excuse to stay in on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays ANYMORE because Coda Jazz and Supper Club has great music every week and you can win tickets to all of them!!!

The latest addition to Coda's weeklies is Wednesday nights with The RONDO BROTHERS PRESENT..."LAST NIGHT RULED" (WIN**)!!! They will be spinning a variety of records from their early 80's .45 collection, weird old soul and r&b records, Hawaiian music, and music of their many friends and collaborators, using live instruments and guests to accentuate the experience.
