Hey BISS Listers!! Summer is almost here!! And the festival season is already upon us!! What are your festie plans this summer? We have tons right here in Nor Cal!  Have you been counting down the days til High Sierra like the BISS crew?  It's less than a month away on July 5th - 8th!! What's your camp's theme? Have you made your grid? Got your late night tickets? Get on it! http://www.highsierramusic.com/    We have just enough time to recover from HSMF when we get home to be ready for the Far West Fest on July 21st.  Tickets should be on sale Friday. http://farwestfest.org/  Anyone out there have a big yard where the BISS crew can camp in Pt Reyes?  Next up on the calendar is Outside Lands right here in our very own Golden Gate Park. (2 blocks from my house = bonus)

Then, of course, we have the bestest fest of them all, Guitarfish Music Festival on September 14-16 in Cisco Grove, CA.  Ask anyone who was there last year, band, crew, vendors, or patrons, and they will tell you their newest most favorite festival of last year was Guitarfish brought to you by BISS Presents, Big Tree Productions & Sustainable Tahoe.  Beer brought to you by Lagunitas.  Tickets just went on sale this morning. We are keeping it small again so tickets will be limited. Come join us for Guitarfish II, The Sea Quill featuring: Eddie Roberts & The West Coast Sound, Magic Gravy (Lebo, Watts & Sayers), New Monsoon, SambaDa, The Nibblers, California Honeydrops, Albino!, One Big Guitar (Lebo, Law & Carper), Guitarmageddon, Tracorum, Leche De Tigre, Pleasuremaker / Afrolicious, Delta Nove, Aforfunk Experience, Mama's Cookin', The Earful, Huckle, Tim Snider & Sound Society, Adam Theis & Subharmonic, Jimmy Leslie and The Flow, Cody Beebe & The Crooks, Kyle Hunt & King Gypsie, NVO, Mojo Green, Peter Joseph Burtt & Kingtide, Samba Stilt Circus, Ashley Kepler, and more TBA  http://www.guitarfishfestival.com/

Back to the local and now!! Tonight, Thursday, we're gonna light one up with THE WAILERS at the Mezzanie (*Congrats to Ed S!). Or take it old school and go see RICK DERRINGER at Yoshi's (*Congrats Jeff K).

San Francisco wouldn't be the funky town we love if we didn't get some NOLA around here every couple of weeks! This Friday THE NEW ORLEANS SUSPECTS and ZIGABOO MODELISTE & THE NEW AAHKESSTA ORCHESTRA will be tearing up Brick and Mortar for the first of two nights. Not only that, but it's Kimber's Birthday so you know the feathers and sparkles will be flying at this show.  (*Congrats & Happy Birthday to Kimber aka Pebbles!! & Congrats to Wendy F!) Then we can pop a bottle of champagne and head to The Boom Boom Room where WILL MAGID will be releasing his album Midnight High (*WIN).

Saturday get your errands and brunch in early so you can head to the first day of the two day FAIRFAX FESTIVAL featuring MARK KARAN (@4:30), Honey Dust, The Biambu Project, and Makuru. Then head back to the city and get flared up for either the second night of NEW ORLEANS SUSPECTS (*WIN) or celebrate Johnny's birthday at DONAVON FRANKENREITER at The Independent. Happy Birthday Johnny!! Or maybe get your night started early at Studio 352 with ARTE Y TAPAS Performance Series feat. La Gente + Jordan & the Ritual starting at 8pm.

No matter where you are Saturday night, you should converge to The Boom Boom Room by end of night for EDDIE ROBERTS' COOKBOOK (*WIN). Speaking of The Boom Boom Room, they have just released an app for your phone!  Go to http://wbxapp.com/boom-boom from your droid or iPhone so that, as any true BISS Lister would, you know everyone who is playing at this San Francisco musical treasure. The BISS crew loves us some BBR.

Don't want to head back to the city after the FAIRFAX FESTIVAL on Saturday? You could hit the North Bay Mobile Drive-In which is showing Back To The Future.  There is FREAK SHOW at Hopmonk. THE SCORPIONS & TESLA are playing at Shoreline (*WIN). And HIGHER VISIONS featuring BURNING SPEAR, MOTET,TINARIWEN, BESO NEGOR, ALI WEISS, FREE PEOPLES, JUG DEALERS, and more is at the Sonoma Fairgrounds.

Sunday night, finish your weekend right by rockin out at the Red Devil Lounge with Geoff Tate of Queensryche!! (**WIN)

Ready to start your musical week again on Monday?? THE MIKE OLMOS starts the week off right as always at the Union Room on Monday night. NICKI BLUM AND THE GRAMBLERS continues their Tuesday gig at The Rockit Room. And Wednesday, is James Nash at Sweetwater Music Hall. (*WIN)

If you hear a lot of hooting and hollering and birthday celebrating on Wednesday of next week, it's because a certain red-headed BISS Vice President of Awesomeness is celebrating her birthday!!  When you see her this weekend, be sure to tell Princess Sunny, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Have you bought the brand new MONOPHONICS album yet? Why not?!! You can see them live and buy a copy and maybe they'll even sign it for you on Friday, June 15th at the album release party at the GAMH!!

Ohhhhhhhh to be a BISS Lister and wonder what it means to be bored, 'cause we really don't know a thing about that ;)
