BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 1.26.17 : DUSTBOWL REVIVAL / RONKAT / RAILROAD EARTH / DANGERATE / KARL DENSON /JAZZ MAFIA / ICEBREAKER'S BALL / SURREALISTIC SUPERJAM

Happy Sunny Thursday BISS Listers!
Here in California we're always in need of rain but does it all have to come pouring down like it did last week? Don't we all agree that it's much nicer when it's bright and sunshiney out there. I think I might even wanna get out of the house and go for a drive...
I'd go for a walk if I could but it's gonna have to be a drive. (Don't ask.)

Maybe I will head North over the Golden Gate Bridge... I could be down to hang out in Marin for a bit. I really wouldn't mind catching Dustbowl Revival at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley (**WIN TICKETS**). Then  again, maybe I'll just continue on past Marin and on to Novato to see METALACHI at Hopmonk Novato (**WIN TICKETS**). For those of you who wanna get funky in the East Bay, my friends, RONKAT & KATDELIC With special guest Harold Day and the Experience are at Yoshi's .

Friday, is the first of a three night run for Railroad Earth at The Fillmore. Have you been spreading the word about this in order to be entered for a chance to  **WIN TICKETS** for ALL THREE nights? Well, get on it!  We're talking Railroad Earth with Jon Stickley Trio on Friday, Hot Buttered Rum on Saturday, & Poor Man's Whiskey on Sunday. If you haven't been sharing like crazy, you still have chance to win 2 tickets for ONE of the 3 nights of Railroad Earth at The Fillmore this weekend! Check the "HOW WIN TICKETS" section below to find out how.

Friday night, here in the city, DANGERATE: SF's Hottest Funk Jazz Rock Instrumental Quintet of teenagers is playing for Free at Ocean Ale House from 7-9:30. That leaves you plenty of time to catch Kings of Leon with Deerhunter at Bill Graham Civic or Kitchen Dwellers co-headlining with Gipsy Moon at Great American Music Hall (**WIN TICKETS**).

Up north  on Friday night, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe w/ Phil Lesh is at Terrapin Crossroads and
LANTZ LAZWELL & THE VIBE TRIBE is at Hopmonk Sebastopol (**WIN TICKETS**). In the East Bay at one of my favorite little venues, Ghost-Note featuring members of Snarky Puppy & Prince) is playing at Ivy Room (**WIN TICKETS**).

On Saturday, aside from RRE with HBR at The Fillmore, which I already mentioned, all of my Best fo BISS picks are all here in the city.  JELLYBREAD is playing just across the street at Boom Boom Room  (**WIN TICKETS**).  Jazz Mafia plays Miles Davis's Birth of the Cool at SF JAZZ - Joe Hendreson Lab for the SFJAZZ Hotplate Festival. Grateful Bluegrass Boys w/ special guest Matt Eakle plus Kate Gaffney Band is at Slim's (**WIN TICKETS**). HUSHconcerts and The Janky Barge present: ICEBREAKERS BALL w/ DJ Icey, DJ Zach Moore, Motion Potion, Shouts!, Matt Haze, Phleck, Snarkle, Flytrap, Beato, Illalien, & Chuck Jones are at The Great Northern (**WIN TICKETS**).

Sunday, if you still haven't made it out for Railroad Earth at The Fillmore, this is your third and final chance. With ...Poor Man's Whiskey

Monday night, Cochrane McMillan from Tea Leaf Green is playing with his friends: Avi Vinocur, Scott Padden, and Jeremy Lyon, Omar Velasco, Wyndham & Lola Kirke at Ivy Room (**WIN TICKETS**).

On Tuesday, the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love kicks off at The Fillmore with The SURREALISTIC SUPERJAM saluting the 1967 release of SF alumni Jefferson Airplane's iconic album Surrealistic Pillow with members of ALO, Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh & Friends, Midnight North, and Moonalice plus special guests!

Before I leave you to read on and find out about the rest of the shows going on in the bay area, I want to tell you about MY friend and friend of BISS, Linda Kelly's (author of "Deadheads") launch of a new hyper-local news magazine delivering information, events, interviews & conversations about The Haight through print, web & social. She's the Managing Editor & it's already available online at https://www.facebook.com/HaightStreetVoice/  and will be hot off the press (yes, in print) on a newsstand near you in February 2017.

And here's one for you Casey...

E-Flat walks into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve minors"

BISS 01.06.17 : BBR BOWIE BASH / FUNK REVIVAL ORCHESTRA / TOWER OF POWER / DEAR 2017...

Dear 2017 - I know we barely even know each other, so it may be presumptuous for me to start asking for favors, but do you think you could try to be a bit kinder than 2016? (not to mention the end of 2015) I understand that this is just life and sometimes it's hard...but maybe a little less cruelty by the time you hand me off to 2018?

Almost anyone you ask experienced personal loss of friends & family--human & otherwise. We also collectively lost some amazingly great talents who touched the whole world including (but not limited to) a number of musicians, writers, actors, comedians, a sports figure or two and believe it or not multiple astronauts...(sans politically) Starting and ending this list with the two (imho) most epic: David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glen Frey, Abe Vigoda, Paul Kantner, Vanity, Harper Lee, Keith Emerson, Frank Sinatra Jr, Pete Fountain, Edgar Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Florence Henderson, Greg Lake, Garry Shandling, Merle Haggard, Leon Russell, Muhammad Ali, Donald E. Williams, Piers Sellers, John Glenn, Gordie Howe, Garry Marshall, Gene Wilder, Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, & Prince

Fun Fact that you don't give a Sh** about? MIT Researchers say 2016 Didn't Have More Famous Deaths Than Usual. IN fact, it was below expected... (the number of famous people dying has been increasing pretty much linearly since 2000) HOwever, the  level of mega famous was higher than normal (they "say" 16) so it just "feels" like more... Yeah, sure, whatever... 2016 sucked. 2017 can do better! (we give you the go ahead on Charlie)

So here we are ready to move on and hang out with you for the next year. And while some of us (quite a few I know) may be starting out with injuries and surgeries and other life challenges to sort out, we have a whole year to get back on track.

In conclusion... I humbly ask you please 2017, please, if you wouldn't mind, please cut us all a break and be a little gentler? We would all appreciate your leniency... If not, Sunny is gonna glitter bomb you!

Sincerely,
Pamela,
aka Miss BISS,
ALL the rest of the BISS crew,
not to mention most of the world....
PS. I am very confident that the healthy BISS Listers will be able to step it up and rep for those of us who can't get up and out quite yet to launch into our new relationship...

You all know why I am so confident in all of you to hold it down dear BISS Listers as we roll into 2017? Because I have seen the upcoming calendar of shows and it's looking good right outta the gate!

Let's start with this weekend... then check the  Google Calendar to see what else is coming up!
