BISS List 02.09.18: SCOTT PEMBERTON + TONY GLASER / BRASS MAFIA / ERIC KRASNO / RETURN OF THE CYPHER / HAPPY MARDI GRAS & HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Happy Mardi Gras AND Happy Valentine's Day my dear BISS Listers!! I'm declaring this an extended weekend due to Mardi Gras on Tuesday and Valentine's on Wednesday. It's been two years since Miss BISS was ready and able to take the lead in the annual Mardi Gras parade from Patricia's Green (that's the park on Octavia at Hayes) to Brick and Mortar. We literally stop traffic on our way (see picture below of the crowd following me across Market?) It's a true second line complete with bead and brass!

When we get to Brick, there will be great NOLA style food brought to you by the chefs at the Crafty Fox cause you'll be hungry after dancing through the streets. And of course, the bar will be open cause you will definitely be thirsty. ��

Then we'll continue the celebrate Mardi Gras style with a full night of music at Brick and Mortar. Buy your tickets now! 
You could also enter to WIN TICKETS for this party by sharing that link and emailing biss@bisslist.com to let us know where and when you did!

This weekend looks like a great kickoff to Mardi Gras with Brass Mafia's Mardi Gras Celebrationtonight & tomorrow at Feinsteins at the Nikko.
Though I will be starting in my hood with Tony Glaser band opening for Scott Pemberton at Boom Boom Room. The timing over there should work out perfectly to slip out for Brass Mafia after Tony's set and still make it back for the second set of Scott Pemberton.
Tomorrow night, it's #sunnypammytime night. Yaaaaay! We are gonna end up at Great American Music Hall for March Fourth Marching Band. Congrats to our winner Dave A on winning a pair of tickets!
As always, I have made a list of my picks for the weekend. But I went all the way through next Friday in case I am late again next week. I even tried to sort them in order by preference as hard as that is! That's not to say that the full  BISS Calender isn't already an excellent selection of shows around the bay recommended by the ever faithful BISS List crew. So be sure to check it out: http://bit.ly/bisslistcalendar.

One last thing, can you remember this? 22828. OK, now the next time you talk to someone about what's happening in the funk and jam scene around here, you tell them to pull out their phone and send a text to that number with the word: BISSLIST in the text. They will get a reply asking for their email address and then be added to the list. Now they won't have to ask you, cause they will KNOW!
