BISS LIST 11.29.16 :: POLYRHYTHMICS / DRAGON SMOKE / MIKE DILLON BAND / DEL MCCOURY BAND / RANDOM RAB / ANDY FRASCO / BEATS ANTIQUE // NXT WK:: BISS HOLIDAY PARTY!

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


Happy warm and sunny Tuesday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We want to send out a huge congratulations/round of virtual applause to JAMMIN' ON HAIGHT and our Jammily for throwing a super successful and beautiful PRANKSGIVING 2016 WEEKEND. The Avalon Ballroom was an absolute psychedelic masterpiece, the models were fabulous, the clothing - incredible, and the music unbeatable! A huge thank you to the man behind all the rainbows - BenJammin Strebel and the always sparkly and magical, Sunshine Powers, for making it happen. We couldn't do it without you guys!

As for this week, no music at all. Just kidding! There are plenty of great shows to hit up this week! Tonight, up in Napa, we have 8-piece funkified, POLYRHYTHMICS, at the Blue Note Napa which sounds like a great little club. If that's too much of a hike for you tonight, they're heading this way too - don't worry! Here in the city, you can catch the first of two nights with THEE OH SEES & ALEX CAMERON over at The Chapel!

Tomorrow night, you can head over to the Great American to see A JOHN WATERS CHRISTMAS plus DJ OMAR PEREZ! It's officially Christmas season guys, there is no denying it now!

On Thursday we welcome December with FREE TICKETS and a super dose of FUN! Miss BISS has a pair of tickets to giveaway to the much anticipated NOLA-born-Superjam-group, DRAGON SMOKE, with Guitarfish fave, PETER JOSEPH BURTT, up at Hopmonk Sebastopol (**WIN TICKETS**)! Totally worth the drive, or if you're up that way...you should definitely be looking forward to this one! Down here in the city, we also have a pair of tickets for RANDOM RAB + NOMINUS at The Great Northern (**WIN TICKETS**). If you're looking for something different, Alice 97.3 is throwing their annual holiday concert, ALICE IN WINTERLAND, at The Masonic featuring ONEREPUBLIC, TRAIN, and THE LAST BANDOLEROS!

Friday night we have the first of two not-to-miss nights with DRAGON SMOKE at The Independent featuring STANTON MOORE, ROBERT MERCURIO, IVAN NEVILLE, & ERIC LINDELL (**WIN TICKETS**)! MIKE DILLON BAND will be opening up that night so make sure to get to The Indy early! I'll totally be there, so I hope to see you on the dance floor! After Dragon Smoke, head over to the late night party at Boom Boom Room for MIKE DILLON BAND until 4:30am with some super great special guests (**WIN TICKETS**). Another great show...wish I could clone myself to be there too...is the DEL MCCOURY BAND at Freight & Salvage! DEL YEAH! Over at Club Fox, you can catch two awesome sets of ELVIN BISHOP or you can head over the The Fillmore for LOS LOBOS (**WIN TICKETS**)! Last but not least, BEATS ANTIQUE has been touring all over and they're finally in our radius! They will be in Santa Cruz at The Catalyst if you're looking for a little weekend out of the Bay, but you can also catch them Saturday night in the East Bay too!

On Saturday, if you still haven't seen the supergroup, DRAGON SMOKE, you have one last chance on Saturday and you get a special dose of ANDY FRASCO & THE U.N. opening up (**WIN TICKETS**)! Then, head over to Boom Boom Room for yet another fantastic after party with ANDY FRASCO & THE U.N. w/ superstar guests on top (**WIN TICKETS**)! Lucky us! Up at the super cute Sierra Valley Lodge, you can catch POLYRHYTHMICS and maybe hit the hot springs the morning after (**WIN TICKETS**)! For some real good pickin' you should check out the GRATEFUL BLUEGRASS BOYS at Hopmonk Sebastopol (**WIN TICKETS**)!  In the East Bay, we have the superfusion of world music, hip-hop, middle eastern vibe with a little jazz -BEATS ANTIQUE + DEVOTCHKA and ALAM KHAN at The Fox. We also have High Sierra born, BIG LIGHT, with THE DIRTY + RICK BARRY at Brick & Mortar and that will definitely be a real good time (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Sunday, take a romantic cruise through the Marin headlands in your convertible (or if it's with me, maybe your really badass street van), possibly stopping at the beach for a picnic and some wine, then head to the Hopmonk Sebastopol (possibly with some free tickets so buy nicer wine!) for CHARLIE HUNTER TRIO (**WIN TICKETS**)! If you need more cute date advice, let me know, more than five and I might start charging - California is expensive.

On Monday night, there is a wonderful FREE concert showcase at SF JAZZ - Miner Auditorium featuring ADAM THEIS & THE MONDAY NIGHT BAND. Tuesday is pretty busy actually - SF never sleeps! We have the fabulous, AFROLICIOUS at Sweetwater (**WIN TICKETS**) for the funk seekers! Live 105 is also celebrating their 30th birthday with THE LUMINEERS at the Great American...these guys sold out two nights of Red Rocks this past summer...gotta be something great happenin' there! Oh, and don't forget, at The Independent - GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA, a supergroup of metal and rock you don't want to miss, featuring members of ALICE IN CHAINS, MASTODON, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MARS VOLTA, THUNDERCAT & DETHKLOK, BLACK MAP, & DANGERMAKER! Whoa...that's going to be pretty freakin' awesome.

Well, there ya have it! Another week of awesome to make you get some healthy exercise on the dance floor and drop it like it's hot with your buds. Go get it, people!
