BISS 09.21.16 : JANE'S ADDICTION+FISHBONE / PEOPLE'S BLUES OF RICHMOND+PAMELA PARKER / SOUL REBELS FT. TALIB KWELI / HUSHFEST OCEAN BEACH

Happy Autumnal Equinox BISS Listers!  

Technically, the Equinox falls on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 7:21am. And then just like that, Summer will be officially over. Here in San Francisco, we know that means we have the summer weather & the fall concert season coming! It also means we get just as many hours of sunlight to spend at the beach as we do moonlight to spend on the dance floor. Last week, Casey and I suggested that we take a moment to reflect on the summers we've had and get ready to dance into Fall... Reflecting over. Pressing Play...

When I put together this week's Best of The BISS, I couldn't help but look on into next week and then even further through to the end of the year. There is a lot of good music coming up this week and beyond so I am going to give you this week's picks and then highlight some shows to note through December. This could take a while...

That being said, I am going to add another contest this weekTo enter to *WIN*  a pair of tickets from BISS, check out the BISS Google Calendar, which is currently updated with all the shows we have entered into our system thru the end of 2016. (**Thank you Mr. Phillip Ranelli!) Then email biss@bisslist.com with any BISS worthy shows that you don't find in there! We will pick one winner for this contest each week so make it a good one! And we thank you for your input!

Alright here we go with Miss BISS Picks... a.k.a. 
Best of The BISS (Week of 9/21)!

Tonight, 9/21/16, we're starting the night early at DOSA with the Sujata Winemaker Fall Dinner Series 2016: with winemaker Bryan Harrington of Harrington Wines, an urban winery located in San Francisco at DOSA @ 6:30. More info:https://www.facebook.com/events/945515615559689/

Then we'll bust a move to get over to the Masonic where Jane's Addiction is playing with Fishbone opening. Though I wouldn't mind going to the Fox for St. Paul and the Broken Bones. And then if we are going to be in the East Bay, why not check out GUITAR ARMY with Robben Ford, Lee Roy Parnell, Joe Robinson at Yoshi's. Speaking of this show, why didn't any of you enter to the WIN the tickets for this last night... But more than likely, if you are going to Jane's, I will probably see ya there.

Thursday, Blue Bear School of Music is putting on a Benefit for the school at Boom Boom Room. I know you already know all about the awesome school! You probably have a friend playing in the showcase. Then Stang is playing on into the night. Donations for admission or you can  **WIN TICKETS** by spreading the word.  Also Thursday is HUSHconcerts & TekFreaks present: Aphrodite, & Tek Freaks at The Great Northern **WIN TICKETS**.  

if you wanna find me, I will probably be at Slim's for People's Blues of Richmond plus Pamela Parker  **WIN TICKETS**.

On Friday, you are most likely to find me at either Boom Boom Room pr Great American/ JellyBread & PigWar are at BBR. Nice double feature@  **WIN TICKETS**  GAMH is the 2nd Annual Spirit Ball with Afrolicious and Royal Jelly Jive + La Gente opens. That's a triple header! **WIN TICKETS**

If I were more inclined to leave the city, going East, I would also be considering other musical treats like Leon Bridges plus Lianne La Havas at The Greek Theatre, as well as SLY & ROBBIE AND THE TAXI GANG at New Parish **WIN TICKETS**. Going North, I wouldn't be mad if I caught the Shook Twins with Go By Ocean  at Sweetwater Music Hall **WIN TICKETS** or Melvin Seals & JGB  at Terrapin Crossroads. Though Melvin is playing one more night...

Oh then again, one more choice in the city to consider for Friday. O.A.R. with The Hunts at The Fillmore. Hmmmm....

On Saturday night, I am staying local and hitting up The Soul Rebels Sound System Ft. Talib Kweli at The Fillmore on Saturday night. Come on that's gonna be rippin, right? We still have tickets to win thru BISS get on it and enter so we can have a posse. Drinks before the show in the hood?

I wish I didn't hate that driving and finding parking thing... Because Bonnie Raitt plus Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers are at Greek Theatre. Oh and I don't actually have a ticket either... But that would be a show to see, right?

My friends, KATDELIC are playing with SNOW ANGEL (FEAT, my friend, GABBY LALA) at my friend's club, Ivy Room in Albany (that's East Bay)  **WIN TICKETS**. Certainly sounds like a friendly show for me...

Also my friends, The California Honeydrops are playing at The Catalyst on Saturday. But you and I both know I am not likely to be driving down to Santa Cruz and back in one night...
There is still the option of going to Marin for Melvin Seals & JGB playing at Terrapin Crossroads. What about GARBAGE with: Cigarettes After Sex at The Masonic?

Sunday is supposed to be a beautiful day. It will be an even more beautiful day if you are at the beach with all your friends, wearing a pair of headphones and rocking out HUSHconcerts presents HUSHFEST OCEAN BEACH feat Mad Professor, Karsh Kale (dj), Martin Flex, J. Boogie, Motion Potion, Janaka Selekta, DJ Sep, DJ Icon, & DJ Mancub at OCEAN BEACH SF.  **That's really more like my pick of the entire weekend. I might even not go late night on Saturday, just to be fresh and early to the beach... hoping to make it by 12:30 so I can get a couple hours in before I have to leave at 2:30 to get to work by 4. Could be even more beautiful is you win a pair of tickets! Check out the section: HOW TO WIN TICKETS below for contest rules.

But I am done with work by 6. So what about Sunday evening and into the night? Did you know that Shoreline season is in full swing and they have Def Leppard with REO Speedwagon and Tesla all together that night? Talk about nostalgia... Did you know this? Def Leppard was one of the first concerts I ever went to.  My friend's older brother got us 5th row center center.... #truestory

There are also multiple options for Sunday night right here in the city. I heard that Damian Jr. Gong Marley + Rassarella at Great American Music Hall is SOLD OUT so I probably won't be going there... But I would if I could. I have had plenty of solid Sundays with Madrone and Boom Boom Room. Start with Wil Blades "Sunday Sessions" at Madrone Art Bar for $5. Then head to RETURN OF THE CYPHER with DJ Kevvy Kev for FREE at Boom Boom Room. THat puts me right back in my which does not make it any more likely that I will go home early...

However, If I do make it home early on Sunday, it makes it more likely that I will make it out to one of these fine choices on Monday night... Petaluma isn't that far to go for Con Brio with Chali 2na at Lagunitas Brewing Co. Amphitheatre.

Next Wednesday, there are three more shows that I have to mention. HUSHconcerts presents REBIRTH BRASS BAND & DJ Mancub at Starline Social Club in Oakland. I love Rebirth. No doubt. But they do also play the next day at Slim's...

I could go also go back for more nostalgia with MR. BIG at Regency Ballroom. Though I am gonna say that I might just end up at Monarch with my friends in Smoked Out Soul **WIN TICKETS** and then pop down the street to see other friends at Housepitality at F8.

As I said early there are a lot of good shows picked by the BISS in house team to be found on the calendar thru the end of 2016. This next list is just my first glance picks that you might want to mark on your calendar. Feel free to skip over this and look at the details for the next two weeks below in the more comprehensive Calendar Listings. Or check the BISS Google Calendar for even more dates and info..

I narrowed it down to a list of 83 shoes.. oh wait there's two more (can't miss Greyboy Alltars at Indy in Nov!)  So 85 shows that I consider to be the
