BISS LIST 12.07.16 :: BISS HOLIDAY PARTY TONIGHT!! / STU ALLEN / CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD / KUNG FU & PARTICLE / ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT / PETER ROWAN / TERRAPIN ALL-STAR

Best of the BISS List 
By BISS Staff Writer: Casey Sol

We would like to start this issue of BISS with a huge heartfelt condolences for the tremendous loss in the art and music community in Oakland. There are no words to describe such a tragedy or the immense cloud of thick sadness upon us. Our hearts go out to the ones we've lost, their families, the survivors, and the community. If you're reading this, you are part of this scene in one way or another. Whether you are attending an event, working an event, volunteering, or performing - be safe, be responsible, and know your surroundings.

Tonight we have the the super spectacular and sparkley BISS HOLIDAY COCKTAIL PARTY with guest STAR-tender, Elie, at the Fishbowl Bar & Grill! Here is a special message from Miss BISS herself, "Will we see you tonights?! It's been quite a year since the last BISS List & Elie Holiday Cocktail Party, hasn't it? (I think the last party I hosted was this party last year.) This will make 8 year's in a row that Elie & I have thrown this party to kick off the holiday season. We make it an easy one. No cover. No need to bring anything. Just bring yourselves and some dollars for the bar (& grill if you're hungry!). The best party of the night (aside from all of you), is our guest startender, Mr. Elie Sasson, who will be serving up stiffies and drink specials all night long! 7p-11p at The Fishbowl Bar & Grill! Feel free to invite/bring friends! Dress as you please or to the nines! See you there!"

After the BISS HOLIDAY PARTY, we can all head over to Madrone Art Bar and continue the no cover party with HOWARD WILEY & EXTRA NAPPY! Or if you're heading back to the East Bay you can catch one of two great shows! First, MAXWELL & MARY J. BLIGE: KING + QUEEN OF HEARTS WORLD TOUR with special guest RO JAMES over in my backyard, The Oracle! Also in the East Bay, we have the first of three shows with STU ALLEN for his END-OF-THE-YEAR SHOWCASE at the cutest club in the Bay, Ashkenaz (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Tomorrow, we welcome back CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD at The Fillmore for the first of three nights! At The New Parish, we have the fusion funk group, KUNG FU, with equally awesome jam-funk band, PARTICLE (**WIN TICKETS**)! Sounds like quite the dance party over there. The KFOG CONCERT FOR KIDS is happenin' tomorrow night at The Masonic, featuring BAND OF HORSES, BLIND PILOT, and THE REVIVALISTS - a great benefit for the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland. Over at Miner Auditorium, we have the first of four nights of the ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT which sounds like an incredible array of musical genres and styles blended into a delicious earful for you. Tickets are almost sold out, so make sure to jump on it!

Friday will be here before ya know it! You can catch night two of CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD or ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT, or night three with STU ALLEN (**WIN TICKETS**), . There is also a DJ dance party happenin' over at 1015 Folsom with NIGHTMARES ON WAX, ROMARE, ROMANOWSKI, DJ CENTIPEDE of MOPHONO, DJ PLATURN, and MOTION POTION (**WIN TICKETS**)! At the Boom Boom Room, we have a late night party with 7-piece PNW group, THE DIP, and ZANE CARNEY who has played with the likes of John Mayer and opened for Gov't Mule, U2, The Black Crowes, and more (**WIN TICKETS**)!

On Saturday, I will totally be front row of one of my favorite artists, PETER ROWAN, at Freight & Salvage - if you're heading there too, make sure to check out the awesome Holiday Street Fair nearby in Berkeley with over 200 local artists set up for handcrafted Christmas magic! Up at Terrapin, we have NEW MONSOON in the Grate Room for a special RHYTHM REUNION show! Also on Saturday night, we have Alex Koford's awesome psychedelic rock project, COLONEL & THE MERMAIDS, + Scary Little Friends & Camino at the Boom Boom Room for ya (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Sunday night, Terrapin Crossroads brings out the all-starts with AN EVENING WITH THE DEAD featuring Terrapin All-Stars:  PHIL LESH, ROSS JAMES, SCOTT GUBERMAN, LEBO, & ALEX KOFORD! Thomas John, an internationally acclaimed psychic medium will also be joining them with a psychedelic conversation about spirituality and the afterlife beforehand. It is also the last night to catch the ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT here in the city at Miner Auditorium!

On Monday, Boom Boom Room is hosting the BLUE BEAR SCHOOL OF MUSIC WINTER BENEFIT. Blue Bear is the original Bay Area school of rock-n-roll since 1971! Admission is donation based and goes towards helping more students of all ages, levels, and styles in the area for years to come! Come show your support!

Tuesday night we have the CHARLIE HUNTER QUARTET featuring SCOTT AMENDOLA, KIRK KNUFFKE, & KASEY KNUDSEN + In the Soul Kitchen host, HARRY DUNCAN, for an extra dose of roots, rock, soul, and blues (**WIN TICKETS**)!

I'll just hop into Wednesday a bit too - one of the first Queens of Rock N Roll, STEVIE NICKS, will be at SAP Center with THE PRETENDERS! That's going to be top notch!

Some corny advice for the holiday season...

"If you're struggling to think of what to get someone for Christmas...get them a fridge and watch their face light up when they open it."
