BISS 12.14.17 : HAPPY CHANUKAH / MONOPHONICS / CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD / PAPA MALI / GLITTER CABANA / BILL GRAHAM MENORAH DAY / IN LOVING MEMORY OF BO

Happy Chanukah BISS Listers! Today, December 14th, is night three of the festival of lights. Tonight, when I light my candles, they will have a little extra special meaning as I light them in honor of my late husband, Mr. Robert Bo Mahoney who passed away two years ago today.  It's gonna be a long, hard day as much as it's been two long hard years... (FIVE if we're really counting...) However, I know I'll make it through today the same as I have made it through the years with the never-ending love and support of so many of my amazing friends, family and community.  I named the photo below "Gratitude". It's from an epic night where all those friends & family came together and honored Bo's memory with a huge magical musical tribute at The Fillmore.  Again, I say Thank you.
Still love you.
Still miss you.
Every.
Day.


It's hard to imagine going out to a show where I might dance and have fun on a day like today. I was going to stay in. But as it happens, 'My boys", aka Monophonics, who refer to me as "Mama Pam", are playing at the Indy. If you don't know, they were the first band I managed, and I was their first manager somewhere back about 10 years ago. Bo and I toured with them. And of course, Bo, Mr. FOH
Engineer, mixed them and LOVED them (as do I). When I recently ran into some of the boys and they said they would like to honor him at the show tonight at The Independent, it was instantly clear that THAT is the most perfectly appropriate place for me to be tonight.

Tonight, also begins the three-night run of Chris Robinson Brotherhood at The Fillmore. Congrats to all three of our winners! Thank you for repping for BISS tonight at the show! How did they win, you ask? They read the stellar interview with NealCasal of CRB from BISS List Contributing Editor, Josh Danson! Then they shared it and emailed biss@bisslist.com to let us know. Check it out for yourself! http://bit.ly/BISSListInterviewNealCasal
Then get yourself a couple of tickets for one of these shows! See ya there on Friday night!

After the Fillmore on Friday night, it's often a no brainer to head across the street to the Boom Boom Room.  Even more so when PAPA MALI's Holiday Folly ft. Jay Lane, Will Bernard, Victor Little & More + PROFESSOR JONES + DJ K-OS are playing! Also playing Saturday but with one of BISS Lists new faves, Crooked Stuff opening the night. You can **WIN TICKETS** to either of these shows by spreading the word about these shows! Email it, Facebook it. Tweet it. Whatever you think will get the word out. Then email biss@bisslist.com to let
us know how you've been spreading the word and why you should rep for the BISS crew at one of these shows.

Saturday is another full of friends' holiday parties everywhere from North Beach to San Rafael. See ya'all late night back here in the Fillmore hood at
BBR for night two of Papa Mali.

Sunday, there's no rest for the weary! I am super excited for a #SundayFunday! Lonni Punani & DJ Seven are throwing their first holiday "Glitter Cabana" to tie a bow on the season of holiday parties in SF. Glitter attire encouraged. Glitterfied DJs: M3 (Green Gorilla, Disco, Knights, Great Northern, Monarch), Duserock (Monarch), DJ Seven (The Unusual Suspects - SF), Jonboy (Disco Katz), Kevin Know aka Kevin O'Neill (Mucho Disco, ExitWestSF), Chris Martin (Driftwood, Not Coldplay), Christopher Föor (SF) PLUS yours truly , Miss BISS will be hosting the Sunny Sparkles glitter booth. Come thru and let me make you
sparkle!

That's not all for this #SundayFunday! This year marks 45 years since Bill Graham donated the 25 foot Menorah to the city of San Francisco. At that time, it was the first public Menorah erected outside of Israel.   There are now some 500 menorahs of this kind being lit across the world during the festival of lights but ours will always remain the "Mama Menorah". Every night in the
Square during Chanukah is a spectacular lighting with Rabbi Langer and the rest of the Chabad crew supported by one of my most favorite SF families, The Kennedy Cohens. However, they always get especially down on one Sunday during the festival of lights bringing in live music with Jerry's Kosher Deli and other fun forms of entertainment. So, I will be taking a break from the Glitter Cabana somewhere in the 3-5 time-frame to drop in at Union Square for Bill Graham Menorah Day!

Trying to pull the Best of the BISS this week and through the New Year and finding it quite difficult.  But I am about to do my best here. I am also going to do my best not to have FOMO since I leave for the East Coast early next week meaning I will be missing lots of the good upcoming stuff here in the Bay! 

Here's this week's....

BISS LIST 12/6/17: BISS HOLIDAY PARTY / SONGS ABOUT SOMETHING / JIMMY HERRING / DEVON ALLMAN / REX BENEFIT / POLYRHYTHMICS & DIRTY REVIVAL / VICTOR LITTLE

Happy December BISS Listers! And with that, it is 100% Holiday Party time. That means that sometimes we might have to miss some music to spend time with our friends and family as hard as it may be to tear ourselves away from the music which somehow seems to be the best whenever we aren't able to be there. We must try to do our best to follow BISS Rule #1, "There is no such thing as FOMO".  The idea behind that is that while we might be feeling we are missing out, we must remind ourselves that we are right where we are supposed to be. Therefore, there is no such thing as "Fear Of Missing Out".
 
I hope that you will all find that the place you are supposed to be tonight is kicking off the holiday party season with BISS and Elie at The Fishbowl! We have had some great times at the Fishbowl over the past 8 years since this holiday party tradition started. It's totally casual. No gifts. No decorations. No muss. No Fuss. Just a few hours to socialize with all our BISS friends and let Elie pour us some good solid stiffies!

 
There are multiple parties and multiple shows every other day of this week and next, so I leave it up to you! If music is your choice, here are my picks for the best of this week!

BISS LIST 11.23.17 : HAPPY THANKSGIVING / DARK KABARET / KATDELIC / KARL DENSON / LOVE ON HAIGHT'S ANNUAL PANTY PARTY WITH DJ WILLIAMS // NXT WK: EDDIE ROBERTS & FRIENDS/ THE NEW UP

Happy Thanksgiving BISS Listers! That's right, the holiday season is upon us which means it's time to start the celebrating! As always, BISS & Elie are kicking off the holiday season with our 9th Annual BISS Holiday Party starring guest Startender Elie Sasson at 7pm on Wednesday, December 6th.
It's always a fun night full of friends, drink specials & holiday cheer. No need to RSVP. No need to dress up. No need for gifts. Just come out, drink some stiffies and socialize with your fellow BISS List followers.

Sorry to jump ahead but at BISS we all get excited about our annual bash. So, let's talk about this week in the Bay Area music scene. After you fill yourselves with Turkey or Tofurkey or maybe even Turducken for Thanksgiving, you might be looking for somewhere to dance it all off.  I know I will be!

Here's my definite plan for this weekend and a few I won't miss next week...

Friday, aka Black Friday I am starting out at The Dark Kabaret at The Great Star Theater, San Francisco, @ 7PM. Your host, Paul Nathan (HBO, MTV, Star Trek Voyager), welcomes you to an evening of unbridled passion, music, humor, and artistry.Musical talent includes BISS friends Eric McFadden, Queen Delphine, & Glenn Hartman plus many many more for a night of magic, comedy, music, and erotic entertainment-all in one beautiful room for your pleasure. If you can't make it on Friday, there is still one last chance for this event on Saturday!

After the show, we'll head straight to the Boom Boom Room to get our brains split by another dear & talented BISS friend, RonKat with his band, Katdelic for his Annual Black Friday Party. If there is ever a night that might go late, this is it! Pamela Parker's Fantastic Machine opens.

On Saturday Night, it is no contest (until you check out the Best of the BISS below). But for me and many of you, I know that the party starts and ends on Fillmore St. Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is back at The Fillmore with "Eat a Bunch of Peaches". We have had a lot of contest entries already but have one more pair to award. Be sure to check out the new contest rules (below) and enter by Friday morning!

Then we'll keep the Karl D vibe going across the street at the Boom Boom Room with KDTU's guitar player, DJ Williams' latest project called Shot's Fired featuring members of Karl D, Greyboy, and Slightly Stoopid.  DJ's Shot's Fired was a sold-out show at The Boom Boom Room when they played in October so make sure you get your tickets ASAP. Especially considering that it's also The Annual Tie Dye Panty Party with Love on Haight which means, yes, you get to take home a pair of panties!  Not to mention that the night kicks off with one of my new favorite Bay Area bands, Crooked Stuff plus DJ Kevvy Kev! Going until 3am.

Next Tuesday is the Send It Foundation Super Jam with Eddie Roberts & Friends featuring Reed Mathis, Wally Ingram, Eric McFadden, Mike Olmos and Joe Cohen at Sweetwater Music Hall. The mission of the Send It Foundation is to inspire positivity, courage, and gratitude in young adult cancer fighters and survivors through the gift of outdoor adventure and community.

Then on Thursday, 11/30, Live 105 Soundcheck Presents our friends & longtime BISS favorite The New Up at Slim's with Devotionals (featuring Two Gallant's Tyson Vogel) plus Live 105 Music Director, Aaron Axelsen Dj'ing. If you haven't seen The New Up yet, they are a female-fronted, electro-rock outfit. The last 12 months have been incredibly great for the band. Following a very successful album release show at Bottom of the Hill for their new recording, Tiny Mirrors, the band was invited to perform at this year's Noise Pop, where they shared a bill with Rogue Wave and Middle Kids at Rickshaw Stop. The New Up then toured the West and East Coasts, and on their return, were asked to play LIVE 105's BFD festival at Shoreline. Opening the night are Fake Your Own Death and Smokin' Ziggurats. WIN TICKETS by spreading the word!

The BISS Team is hard at work every week adding tons of shows to the BISS Calendar that we think you might want to check out from now thru June of 2018 all over the Bay Area from Santa Cruz to Oakland and all the way to Sebastopol. However, we have narrowed that down to this short list of shows that we like to call...

BISS List 11.14.17 : HAPPY BIRTHDAY BO + BLUES TRAVELER 30TH / OBJECT HEAVY / VINTAGE TROUBLE / GREYHOUNDS / TEDESCHI TRUCKS + HARD WORKING AMERICANS / MORNING 40 / DARK KABARET / MELVIN SEALS & JGB / JAZZ MAFIA / GN'R

Happy Birthday to Bo!! And Happy 30th Anniversary to Blues Traveler! If you read last week's BISS, or follow me or BISS List on Facebook you probably know what I am talking about. If not, here's the recap...

Tuesday & Wednesday are going to be a special celebration as longtime friends, Blues Traveler are playing at the Fillmore both nights. Happy 30th Anniversary BT! And as coincidence or kismet or whatever you want to call it would have it, Bo's birthday is on the 15th.  For those who don't know that story, here's the quick rundown... My late husband, Bo Mahoney, worked for Blues Traveler way back in the day (1989-2004).   Our first date was a Gov't Mule show at The Fillmore on 10/21/99.When Bo was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, BT played a benefit show for him at the Indy in 2013.  He passed away in December of 2015. Needless to say that any time Traveler is in town, it's a special occasion, but these two shows will be next level of special as you can probably imagine... Birthday party plans posted on FB
Tickets:
Happy Birthday Bo!
Still love you.
Still miss you.
Every.
Day.

And with that, I am gonna just leave you with this week's....
BEST OF THE BISS
