BISS 12.04.13 - BISS HOLIDAY COCKTAIL PARTY / DRAGON SMOKE / MIKE DILLON / TESDESCHI TRUCKS / DJ KEVVY KEV!

Happy Holidays BISS Listers!! Yep, it's time to start saying Happy Holidays once we get through that yearly Thanksgiving Turkey and our annual weekend of Jammin Rainbows!
 
BISS is kicking off the holiday season tonight, Weds Dec 4th, with the 5th annual BISS & Elie Holiday Cocktail party at the Fishbowl! Elie will be our guest startender pouring you stiffies all night!! 7p-11p
 
If you are lucky enough to have tickets to Phil Lesh & Friends on any of this 4 night run, featuring Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, John Molo, Jeff Chimenti & Neal Casal, enjoy! Tell Warren we say hi!
 
Thursday night, we are going to give it a whirl as Whirl'd goes spinning off the Playa into the Exploratorium! Pier 15 (new location) on December 5th from 6:00- 10:00 PM.
 
Also Thursday night, my pick for New Year's Eve, CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS is playing at Hopmonk in Sebastopol (*WIN). KRS-one is at Yoshi's in San Francisco (*WIN).  Then you can finish your night at WEST GRAND BOULEVARD (*WIN) at The Boom Boom Room.
 
Friday night, DRAGON SMOKE featuring Stanton Moore, Ivan Neville, Eric Lindell, & Robert Mercurio will be smoking up the Independent (*WIN). Then the official after party at the Boom Boom Room  is just as hot with CON BRIO & THE MIKE DILLON BAND going super late night (*WIN)!
 
Saturday, we have a whole caravan of BISS crew headed to Stockton to check out the TESDESCHI TRUCKS BAND (*WIN)!
Happy Birthday Rhonda!
 
If you are sticking around the city on Saturday, there are other options almost as good as Tedeschi Trucks including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at Bill Graham Civic and NIGHTFALL OF DIAMONDS : A BENEFIT FOR THE REX FOUNDATION featuring KELLER WILLIAMS, NICKI BLUHM, JEFF AUSTIN, KEITH MOSLEY, TIM BLUHM, & MICHAEL KANG at The Fillmore.
 
You can also get a second night of DRAGON SMOKE FEAT. ERIC LINDELL, IVAN NEVILLE, STANTON MOORE, & ROBERT MERCURIO PLUS BISS FAVE, PETER JOSEPH BURTT W/ZEB EARLY OPENS at Hopmonk Sebastopol (*WIN) on Saturday.
 
If you are up near Napa on Saturday afternoon, there is another great cause to support with Do It For The Love:  An intimate performance by Michael Franti & lead guitarist Jay Bowman at the Vineyard House in St. Helena. Do It For The Love is a non-profit wish granting foundation bringing people in advanced stages of life threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live concerts.
