Happy BISScember BISS Listers!! 2011 is coming to a close and it's going out with a bang. The BISS calendar for the month of December is full of all kinds of awesome music. Not to mention that we have over 70 pairs of tickets to giveaway to shows just for December. (check out the left column if you get this via email)


Let's get this BISSful season started off right!!


Tonight, we begin with the Grand Opening of the First Jewish Popup Record Store in the World, Tikva Records. The store will be open the entire month of December with an Eclectic Series of Exclusive Live Music performances, Film Screenings, Academic Lectures, Comedians, SF Public School Remix Workshops, Food Trucks and More! The shows are FREE but you must register to hold your space. The store is running off of the donations from all of us so please be generous and help make this project a success!! http://tikvarecords.eventbrite.com

Then we journey just up the street to the Elbo Room for Afrolicous! (*WIN*) We have a special treat there tonight as the cast of Fela! joins the Afrolicous party for a set which will include the show's backing band, Antibalas, plus members of the cast including Sahr (Fela) and many of the actors & dancers!! While we are on the subject of Fela!, SEE THIS SHOW!! It runs through December 11th.


But wait! There is MORE tonight!! Brick and Mortar will be going OFF the next three days, starting tonight, with the New Orleans Suspects featuring members of the Neville Brothers, Dirty Dozen and The Radiators, Camile Baudoin, & Fiver Brown. Congrats to all the winners on all three nights! BISS might still have a pair or two to give away for Friday & Saturday!! Check the calendar below or watch for chances to win on Twitter & Facebook!

Friday get your bootys ready for some BISSshakin with SHARON JONES AND THE DAP KINGS opening for MY MORNING JACKET at the Civic Center. Feel like shakin your ass some more? Head over to New Orleans Suspects again at Brick & Mortar. (*WIN)

Saturday, we are going to give a full night to the New Orleans Suspects for the last of the three night run!! (*WIN) Then, if we still have some spunk for the funk, we'll catch the Funk Revival Orchestra for last call at the Boom Boom Room! (*WIN)

Sunday, Marco Benevento Trio is at The Indy. (Congrats & WIN) Monday is jazz in North Beach, unless of course, I can find a Metallica Fan Club member with an extra ticket for me to the Fillmore show.... Yes, by now you have heard about the Metallica shows at The Fillmore. Find someone in the fan club, cause they were only available to fan club and they are ALL sold out. Tuesday, Iggy Pop at The Warfield. Already halfway in to next week now...


Wednesday, December 7th, is the BISS Holiday Cocktail Party with celebrity guest bartender Elie Sasson at The Fishbowl. Come celebrate the Holiday season with all your friends & BISS crew!!!


So many birthdays this month, with 15 of you just today on the 1st, including Mr. Eric McFadden!! Come out and celebrate Eric's birthday next Saturday, December 10th with BISS, phYne Entertainment, Eric McFadden & Friends, Con Brio & The Blind Willies at Café Du Nord. (*WIN) Happy Birthday Eric! And also a Happy BISSful Birthday today to Jay Blakesberg, Tim Lynch, Jon A. Thundercloud, Matthew Hansen, Alex, Dennis, Emily, Julian, Noelle, Paul, Peter, Tambra, Tim!! And hey while we are at it, Happy Birthday to the other 220 friends who have birthdays this month!!! That'll keep me busy on facebook!

New Years?! What are WE doing for New Years???! The BISS plan for the night is definitely The Greyboy Allstars featuring Fred Wesley performing West Coast Boogaloo in its entirety and other classics by GBA and the JB's. PLUS Zigaboo Modeliste and the New Aahkesstra. ** Open Bar included in the Price of Admission. What do we do for late night on New Years? That's easy, Boom Boom Room for Big Light, Lebo, & The SF Gramble.

There are so many more shows to talk about this month! But you will just have to wait and read next week. In the meantime, don't forget that we have the next month of shows listed below and as many as we can find on the Google calendar on www.bisslist.com.
