BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 12.26.13 - NEW BOHEMIA NYE / SEA OF DREAMS / CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS / HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy New Year BISS Listers!! Are you ready to ring in 2014? BISS has some great suggestions for you on how to end 2013 on a good note! Here we go...

We are starting the NYE celebration tonight, Thursday, with *VICTOR LITTLE's BIG HIT* featuring Victor Little, Joe Cohen, Cedricke Dennis, Kevin Wong,  & John Mader at The Boom  Boom Room (*WIN)!  

Friday night, we're headed over the bridge to get down with long time BISS favorite SOUL funk band, MONOPHONICS for the first of two nights of their Annual Soulful Social at Sweetwater (*WIN*).  Also in the north bay, Phil Lesh & Friends ft. Anders Osborne, John Kadlecik, Tony Leone & Jeff Chimenti are at Terrapin.

Saturday, we're going to stay in the city and do a BISS style night of music.  We'll start at Brick & Mortar for STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL plus Lonesome Locomotive opens (*WIN)!  At set break, we'll pop on over to the Chapel for SambaDa (*WIN). Then back to Brick for more Stu! Then we'll go get our funk on at Great American Music Hall for Afrolicious Live, w/ Will Magid Trio, Pleasuremaker Live, & Zieke McCarter (*WIN).

Sunday, The Go-Go's play The Fillmore.  The Cyphers return to Boom Boom Room with KEVVY KEV. And ANDERS OSBORNE plays solo acoustic at Terrapin.

Monday, you have my permission to rest up for NYE, unless you have a ticket to the SOLD OUT TERRAPIN NATION HOUSE PARTY w/ Phil & Friends ft. Anders Osborne, John Kadlecik, Tony Leone and Jeff Chimenti.

Tuesday, it's NEW YEARS EVE!! Have you decided on your plans yet? BISS has recommendations and even **FREE TICKETS** to some of them!  

What is MY plan you ask?? Well..... We'll be rolling over to Yoshi's for two full sets of California Honeydrops! They play two SOLD OUT shows on New Years,, one at 8 and one at 10:30. (*WIN TICKETS for 8PM)

Then we regroup at BISS HQ for a minute and head straight for New Bohemia NYE feat. The Crystal Method, @ The Armory! San Francisco subculture entertainment leaders The Vau de Vire Society, Opel Productions, and Kink.com are excited for the premiere of their new multi-stage, multi-dimensional New Year's Eve adventure anmd so are we!! http://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-bohemia-nye-tickets-9377740073

It's New Years Eve so there are multiple super late night options leaving us time to get over to Sea of Dreams @ Bill Graham Civic featuring Thievery Corporation, Little Dragon, A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Emancipator, LowRIDERz, Minnesota, Rob Garza, Dirtybird Records artists J. Phlip, Worthy and Christian Martin and Thriftworks headline Sea of Dreams NYE 2014: VibrantSea.

At this point, it will probably be about 5am on the first day of 2014...  We'll regroup, (somewhere TBD) for a couple hours, put on some dancing shoes, and head to Breakfast of Champions! BOC will be returning to Utah Street & Mighty in San Francisco on January 1, 2014! As always there will be an all-star DJ line-up playing from 6 AM until you cry "uncle" in four different areas of sound. All of your favorite Space Cowboy DJs and friends on the first day of the new year.  Space Cowboys are holding their 3rd annual food drive on New Year's Day at Breakfast of Champions. We are raising money and collecting food for the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks. Let's show the community we can help provide a meal of champions for those in need!

1/17/14 & 1/18/14 - Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2014 - The Edwardian Ball is an elegant, whimsical, spectacle of a madhouse slapdashery of costumery and cocktails, circus and storytelling, ribald music, and daring exhibitions that promise to entice and enchant - a feast for the senses with the style and panache of the turn of the 19th century.
