BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 09.27.16 :: HAPPY HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS : MAVIS STAPLES & BOZ SCAGGS & DOOBIE DECIBEL SYSTEM & REBIRTH & PIMPS & HONEYDROPS &...

Happy Hardly Strictly Bluegrass week BISS Listers!! If you have followed the BISS List or any other music related resource for any length of time here in Northern California, or even just live in the SF Bay Area, then you know about Hardly Strictly Bluegrass! If by some chance you are not aware, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is a FREE, 3 day music festival featuring over 100 artists on 7 stages with 750,000 attendees that takes place in Golden Gate Park every year the first weekend of October. Thank you Warren Hellman!

I would have had this letter out to you days ago but I wanted to be really thorough with my recommendations for this years HSB festival. I went thru the entire schedule which took hours and found that there are way more artists I want to see than humanly possible. There are the always classic HSB returning artists, like Steve Earle, Boz Scaggs, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Bill Kirchin, The Time Jumpers, & Poor Man's Whiskey just to name a few. Then there are a variety of bigger & some nostalgic names sure to bring the crowds and also part of the HARDLY of this NOT Strictly Bluegrass event... such as Mavis Staples, Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper, CAKE, & Allen Stone. And then of course, there is the plethora of BISS LIST favorites who we'd be out to see on any given night if they were playing in town... I'm talking about Jim James, Moon Hooch, Nick Waterhouse, Rebirth Brass Band and that's just Friday... Saturday BISS LIST faves include Doobie Decibel System, Delhi 2 Dublin, Hot Tuna Electric, Chuck Prophet, & The Mother Hips. Sunday at Hardly Strictly looks like a full weekend of shows that would be on any BISS List but are taking place during one day between the hours of 11am & 7pm. Sunday BISS List faves includes The California Honeydrops (long time personal fave!), Pimps of Joytime (long long time personal fave!), The Infamous Stringdusters, & Nahko and Medicine for the People. Three song rule will need to be in effect (3 songs = 1 set) to hit all of these plus all the aforementioned HSB 2016 BISS List Picks. Then again, I might just get lost in Golden Gate Park for the next three days. If you have friends with blankets setup, bring supplies from the outside world. Even if you don't have friends with blankets at stages, bring supplies and make new friends...

There are tons and tons of shows going on in town this weekend including many Hardly Strictly Bluegrass artists but plenty more beyond... like tonight I'm gonna hit up Gary Clark Jr at Masonic and maybe Rebirth Brass Band with Jazz Mafia at Slim's. And then there's ZZ Top playing at Iron Stone, Mountain Winery... but hoping to catch them at THE WARFIELD. You can find info about these and so many more by checking out the BISS LIST Calendar below or go straight to the BISS Google Calendar.
P.S. Hey Joe!! I'm coming to see ya for Pimps to celebrate your Hardly Strictly Birthday!! Happy birthday!
P.P.S. - Send a text to 22828 with the word BISSLIST to add your friends to the BISS List

P.P.P.S. - Here's the online schedule I created for HSB16 but I know I missed things. Then again at the same time, this schedule is ambitious, even for Miss BISS...
