BISS 11.08.17 : JAY BLAKESBERG / REBIRTH BRASS BAND / NORTH BAY FIRE BENEFIT / ROBERT WALTER / JRAD / BLUES TRAVELER / VINTAGE TROUBLE / SMOKED OUT SOUL

Happy Hump Day BISS Listers! How's your week going so far? You ready for another good weekend of musical options all around the bay area?  Not sure that I will make it out tonight cause I really want to get this out to you today. Which means I am going to be working on projects for my other (new) job after this. But if I were going out tonight, I would probably be going to Deer Tick at The Independent.

Tomorrow, Thursday, I am going to kickoff the weekend with Jay Blakesberg's opening reception for the launch of his Photo Exhibit, Dark+Light: Rock & Roll Photography 1978-2017 (Runs 11/9-1/6). 

After Jay's opening tomorrow, I'm thinking about going to AT&T Park for Band Together Bay Area: A Benefit Concert for North Bay Fire Relief: Metallica, Dead & Company, Dave Matthews, G-Eazy, Raphael Saadiq, & Rancid.

Friday night, it's a no brainer when ROBERT WALTER'S 20th CONGRESS is playing the first of two nights at Boom Boom Room. Yeah, that's gonna be a good couple of nights at BBR! Plus EL METATE opens plus DJ KOS. I had also thought about Rebirth Brass Band plus DJ Mancub at Starline Social Club brought to you by HUSHconcerts, but it's SOLD OUT.

Hey Red Hot Mama!! Happy Birthday lady!
Saturday night, if I didn't have other plans to celebrate a 10 year wedding anniversary with friends, I would probably be hitting up JRad at The Fox, http://bit.ly/FoxOaklandEvents, followed by more Robert Walter's 20th Congress at Boom Boom Room (cause they always go late).  For those of you going to see Jackie Greene with special guest Anders Oborne at The Warfield, tell him I said Happy Birthday.

Sunday, my friend Paige Clem is playing a NorCal Fire Relief Fundraiser with John Craigie at Sweetwater Music Hall.

Monday, Mike Olmos hosts his weekly show, The Session at Club Deluxe

Tuesday & Wednesday are going to be a special celebration as longtime friends, Blues Traveler are playing at the Fillmore both nights. And as coincidence or kismet or whatever you want to call it would have it, Bo's birthday is on the 15th.  For those who don't know that story, here's the quick rundown... My late husband, Bo Mahoney, worked for Blues Traveler way back in the day (1989-2004).  When Bo was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, BT played a benefit show for him at the Indy in 2013.  He passed away in December of 2015. Needless to say that any time Traveler is in town, it's a special occasion, but these two shows will be next level of special as you can probably imagine... Birthday party plans TBD.
Happy Birthday Bo!
Still love you.
Still miss you.
Every.
Day.
