BISS 09.02.10 - CZQ / OTS / Wil Blades / JGB / The SHE'S / Stanley Jordan Trio

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Or should we say Happy Burning Man?!

Well for those of us STILL in town this weekend...

Friday night, we are starting at the Connecticut Yankee for CZQ with the High Beams (feat. (James Whiton, Chris Haugen, Cecil P-Nut Daniels, Mo Sardell, Chris Zanardi). Then late night, On The Spot Trio @ The Boom Boom Room.

Saturday night, it's either Israel Vibration at The Indy orJGB with Melvin Seals & Stu Allen at The Great American Music Hall...Either way, we'll all meet up at The Boom Boom Room for Wil Blades.

Sunday, thinking about roller-disco in GG park if the weather is as nice as it has been. And then Sunday night check out The SHE'S at The Bottom of The Hill!

I also heard there is Shakespeare in the park this weekend, plus the Sausalito Arts Festival on Monday with Jefferson Starship. If you have other suggestions, post them on our Facebook page!

Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday is Stanley Jordan at Yoshi's!! Might still have one pair to give away for Monday!
