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"
