BISS 05.27.10 - Eric McFadden Trio/ Eric Lindell / Carnaval / Biss Entertainment Presents Memorial Day Weekend

You know you already have the day off tomorrow cause you are going to Further so you might as well get out and see some good music tonight! And such good stuff to choose from!
In the East Bay tonight, we've got Mark Karan & Jemimah Puddleduck @ Ashkenaz (*WIN). In the city, we've got a double dose of Erics with Eric McFadden Trio @ Cafe Du Nord (Congrats to Tim D.) and Eric Lindell @ The Boom Boom Room (Congrats to Harvey P.). And another Biss favorite, Boca Do Rio, is at Coda tonite! (*WIN)
We decided that since so many of you will be up there to represent Biss at Further, we could "rest up" this weekend to be ready for one our favorite festivals every year, Harmony Festival, coming up on June 11th - 13th. (Sponsored By Biss Entertainment)

We will be "resting" by putting on 3 Biss Entertainment shows in the Bay Area this Memorial weekend.

In the city, Friday night, Biss Entertainment Presents...TRACORUM with Kyle Hunt and the King Gypsy @ Pier 23! (Congrats to Jules & Hilary)

In Berkeley Friday night, Biss Entertainment Presents...Pamela Parker with Big Universe @ The Starry Plough

And in Berkely Saturday night, Biss Entertainment Presents...Tracorum (2 FULL SETS) @ The Starry Plough

On Sunday, let's meet for bloody's again @ 4pm on the deck. This week is Eric Lindell!!

Also this weekend is Carnaval San Francisco 2010 on May 29th & 30th. It's a day time event in the San Francisco Mission district. Spanning eight blocks, the festival takes place on Harrison Street between 16th and 24th streets between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
