BISS 08.11.10 - Westside Boogaloo / Chris Barron / Outside Lands / Maceo Parker / Las Tortugas Festival for Halloween!!

What a week of music we had in the Bay Area last week!! We had Phish and the "after shows" every where! And then we all made it into a three day weekend with Jerry Day @ The Giants?! Fun 11 innings! (tho still bummed that someone stole my bobblehead)

But no rest for the die hard music fans!! So here are some things to make note of this week as well as in the months to come!!

Tonight, Weds, you gotta check out Westside Boogaloo @ 19 Broadway! NO COVER

Thursday night, come out to Pier 23 early (7pm) for a special evening with Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) plus Valerie Orth Opens. NO COVER

Friday night, Levon Helm is the show to see! (SOLD OUT) But we love Vinyl too so we'll all meet at the Boom Boom Room!!

Saturday night, John Ellis & Double Wide brings a Big Easy grin to Coda. (Ellis - saxes, Matt Perrine - sousaphone, Jason Marsalis - drums, and Brian Coogan - organ) ***WIN TICKETS!!!***

Of course, everyone knows this weekend is Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park with Further, The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, Gogol Bordello, Rebirth Brass Band, The Levon Helm Band, Cat Power, & Wolfmother on Saturday. And Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Social Distortion, Al Green, Slighty Stoopid, & Garage A Trios on Sunday.

But I know a big group of you are making other plans for Sunday. Maceo Parker is at Stern Grove! (FREE - 2pm) Make sure to have someone down there EARLY to hold a spot with a blanket. Then everyone else can bring food and drink. Be there by 2!

But what about after this week? Well here are a couple of dates to mark on your calendar...

1) The BISS Birthday Party next Sunday, 8/22 with Zigaboo & The New Ahkestra @ Pier 23 (4 - 8pm) followed by Summer Bay Vibes @ Cafe Cocomo (til 2am).
