Best of the BISS List 
By BISS Staff Writer: Casey Sol
In Conjunction with Miss BISS
What's good BISS team!? Miss BISS and I are coming at ya from opposite ends of traveling right now but still making your ticket dreams and music plans priority! This is way more interesting than the vast fields of Kansas in the car on my way to Lockn anyways! If you're heading out to Lockn too, make sure to check out the JAMMIN ON HAIGHT booth across from the main stagethe! We will have a ton of awesome new dyes for the weekend! If you're heading out to Burning Man, keep an eye out for Miss BISS on the playa scattering sunshine and glitter!  There will be an altar in the Temple for Bo and JC with a big photo of them together on the playa last year...

With Miss BISS heading to the playa this Friday, this could be the last BISS newsletter for a few weeks. Don't forget you can always find a more comprehensive list of BISS List recommended shows, in the calendar list below covering three weeks out. Or to see shows we've scoped for the rest of 2016, check the google calendarhttps://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=hckhd8c90tv4fivsmb3eph9j64%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/Los_Angeles

For those of you staying in the city, STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL + THE MELT & LIGHT THE BAND will be over at Slims. The Boom Boom Room never disappoints on a Friday night, especially this one - JOHNNY SKETCH and THE DIRTY NOTES, a classically trained New Orleans band with a plethora of genres thrown into what sounds like a really fantastic party, will be throwing down late night (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Nothing beats a free daytime dance party! At The Greek, Jamaican singer-songwriter, GRACE JONES + BLOOD ORANGE, will be bringing a pretty wild show to the stage I'm sure of it! We also have THE BARNBURNER FAMILY REUNION on Saturday featuring Austin based-band-having-moved-Bay-side, THE MOTHER TRUCKERS, and our very own SF country/soul band, FOUR YEAR BENDER! This is the first show The Benders have played in five years - I guarantee it will be a damn good time! Also, don't forget we have VICTOR LITTLES BIG HIT at the Boom Boom Room and you can be on the list because you're on the BISS List (**WIN TICKETS**)!

On Sunday, we have an awesome show you shouldn't miss! DANGERATE, a SF based band consisting of five members between the ages of 14-16 will be at Tupelo! This here is a total BISS don't miss!

Also, last but not least, it's the last night of DAVE MATTHEWS at The Greek!

Wednesday, YES takes the stage at Mountain Winery and we got a lucky pair of tickets for one of you readers (**WIN TICKETS**)!
