This week on Baghdad by the Bay on Pirate Cat Radio, tune in to 87.9 in SF or LA or listen online starting at 2pm:
Tickets will be given out for Kami Nixon and Bhi Bhiman performance on the air!
On the country side of rock and roll, Kami Nixon is an indie songwriter who cut her teeth on Willie Nelson and plays with rocker Bill Spooner (from the Tubes.) Her humorous-yet-poignant, right-on-the-money songwriting and modern voice combine to make music that just feels right.
Kami’s song “Plans,” on her EP “Boys named Jon,” was featured on KQED. She has played the Mamapalooza Music Festival, plus venues in London, the San Francisco Bay Area (Café du Nord, Red Devil Lounge ), Minnesota, San Diego and other markets. Kami is a voting member of NARAS, which hosts the Grammy Awards.
Kami will be playing Cafe DuNord on June 30th.
Pronounced “Bee Bee-men,” this first-generation Sri Lankan American musician is pretty sure there’s no one else in the world with his name. Even if there is, chances are no other Bhi Bhiman could write a song as cool and catchy as the Bay Area’s Bhi Bhiman can…Sarcasm and humor are among his favorite instruments, but Bhiman’s debut solo album on HinJu Records, “The Cookbook,” has recipes with a serious taste to them, too.”

Bhi will be opening up for Charlie Hunter Trio at Great American on July 4th.
