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

Happy Hump Day, guys! We are flying right into holiday season - I've already been hearing Christmas songs and I still haven't taken off my Halloween costume...maybe. But don't worry, the best way to avoid holiday preparation and family obligations is winning tickets and dancing the night away! Promise!

Last night, HANDMADE MOMENTS totally kicked ass and impressed a big crowd at their first Boom Boom Room show. Super proud of these guys! Make sure to give them a listen when you get a chance or catch one of their last California shows at the PRANKSGIVING BLACK FRI-DYE FASHION GALA. Tickets are still available! Courtesy of Sunshine and Miss BISS, you can use the code "SPARKLES" for 20% off your ticket!

Tonight, we have a few great shows for you! At Monarch we have a special show with SMOKED OUT SOUL benefiting Sacred Stone Legal Defense Fund to protect the water at Standing Rock Reservation (**WIN TICKETS**). Joining them is live soul band, WHISKEY HILL! Over at Mezzanine, we have the high energy DJ dance party group, HOT CHIP (**WIN TICKETS**)! Up in Mill Valley, VINYL is throwing their BLACK WEDNESDAY PARTY - which is sure to be a great time (**WIN TICKETS**) at Sweetwater. Another good option is heading to The Chapel to check out MARTY O'REILLY & THE OLD SOUL ORCHESTRA + THE CRUX  (**WIN TICKETS**)! All possibilities for fun and FREE TICKETS! Thanks, Miss. BISS!

Hop on over to Friday, we have the super anticipated PRANKSGIVING WEEKEND kick off at The Regency (Avalon Ballroom) (**WIN TICKETS**). Jammin' On Haight presents their 5th Annual Black Fri-Dye Fashion Gala (MC'd by the absolutely wonderful, Miss BISS herself!). The evening begins with a VIP Dinner Show with the lovely music of HANDMADE MOMENTS, followed by REED MATHIS & ELECTRIC BEETHOVEN featuring JAY LANE, TODD STOOPS, & CLAY WELCH, then the funkiest of funk around - FOUNDATION OF FUNK with ZIGABOO MODELISTE and GEORGE PORTER JR. with special guests IVAN NEVILLE, TONY HALL, and IAN NEVILLE! To throw a little bit MORE SOUL, if that's even possible, additional special guests, RONKAT SPEARMAN & Jammin' On Haights very own, VIVECA HAWKINS, will also be tearing up the stage! Tickets are still available and all the money raised for this event goes to TAKING IT TO THE STREETS - an amazing program that helps empower homeless youth in SF with job skills, mentoring, safe housing, and access to supportive services. We hope to see you there!

Also on Friday, you can catch an earlier brunch set with REED MATHIS & ELECTRIC BEETHOVEN at Sweetwater Music Hall (**WIN TICKETS**) or head a little further north to see DIEGOS UMBRELLA & ODDJOB ENSEMBLE at Hopmonk Sebastopol (**WIN TICKETS**)! The Boom Boom Room also has quite the party going on with KATDELIC's ANNUAL BLACK FRIDAY shindig + WEST GRAND BLVD (**WIN TICKETS**)! At The New Parish you can go get your hip-hop fix with ZION I, LAFA TAYLOR, & PURE POWERS (**WIN TICKETS**). For a different kind of hip-hop infused DJ dance party, head over to The Independant for BASSGIVING FEAST featuring MINNESOTA + SPACE JESUS (**WIN TICKETS**). For the David Bowie lovers (who isn't!?), THE LIFE AQUATIC A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE will be happening at The Regency. We're not done yet! At Yoshi's, legendary R&B vocal group,THE SPINNERS, will be playing their first of three shows this weekend.

Saturday is packed full of awesome. Jammin' On Haight's PRANKSGIVING WEEKEND continues with it's PANTY PARTY at the Boom Boom Room featuring ADAM DEITCH of LETTUCE, TONY HALL, NIGEL HALL, and IAN NEVILLE (**WIN TICKETS**)! The whole Jammin' crew, including myself, have been dying the most beautiful booty wear for you to take home with ya too! If you're heading to FUNKSGIVING with GRIZ, LETTUCE, HAYWIRE, & BRASS TRACKS at Bill Graham, you can most certainly stop on over to Boom Boom Room after and get yourself some panties too! Over at The Independant, we have the MONOPHONICS, SUN HOP FAT, and ZEBUEL throwing it down (**WIN TICKETS**). At the Great American, a favorite of mine, RISING APPALACHIA, will be bringing folk, soul, and sweet melodies for you to enjoy. A couple more giveaways for you Saturday night, JACKIE GREENE at The Warfield (**WIN TICKETS**) and HOUSE OF FLOYD at The Chapel (**WIN TICKETS**)! For the Phish kids, CHUM at Terrapin Crossroads is sure to fill your void. And over at the UC Taube Family Theater, we also have a pair of tickets to giveaway for BORGORE, JAYCEEOH, and G BUCK (**WIN TICKETS**)! Lots of great things for ya'll to figure out...best of luck!

On Sunday, we have the last of PRANKSGIVING WEEKEND fun with Jammin On Haight at the shop on the corner of Haight and Masonic. Jammin' will be hosting an art show with JOEL SELVIN & SANDY TROY including a book signing, Pranksgiving Poster signing, and a pop-up Summer of Love Museum! We will also have artwork by artist, JUMBIE, and the kids of TAKING IT TO THE STREETS. You can also head over to Madrone Art Bar to catch SUNDAY SESSIONS: WIL BLADES will weekly guests for some straight JAZZ, NO CHASER! It is also the last night of THE SPINNERS at Yoshi's if you missed the shows on Friday and Saturday night.

Tuesday will be here before you know it...and you can head over to The Chapel to see the first of two shows with THEE OH SEES & ALEX CAMERON. As for Wednesday, Great American has A JOHN WATERS CHRISTMAS plus DJ OMAR PEREZ. There is a VIP post show meet and greet with John Waters and special reserved seating.

Alright, everyone, have the most amazing Thanksgiving week and weekend. If this isn't your holiday, it's always good to be grateful...and thankful...for life. Even when you get dealt some pretty heavy cards. You're reading this - which means you have an email or a computer or just access to the internet - that's pretty freakin' special and that's just a tiny fraction of what we shouldn't take for granted. We love you guys! Thank you for your support BISS, local music, all music, fun, and sparkly magic everything!

Here's a less corny but totally inappropriate joke to tell around the dinner table with your loved ones this week...

"What did the cannibal do after he dumped his girlfriend?"
"Wiped his ass."
