BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 01.15.14 - GLEN HARTMAN / SOPHISTAFUNK / **2014 EDWARDIAN WORLD'S FAIR AND BALL** / IKE STUBBLEFIELD / ALPHABET SOUP / TRIBUTE TO SLY!

2014 is off and running BISS Listers!! There is so much going on in the next few weeks that even going BISS Style, it might be hard to hit it all!! So be sure to check out the upcoming shows listed below or to look even further out, check the full Google calendar at the bottom of www.bisslist.com. On Jan 31st alone there are 10 out of 12 shows with giveaways and it's gonna be hard to pick just 3 for the night!! We will have to make a plan to divide and conquer it all!!

Tonight, Shawn Colvin takes the stage with her solo acoustic show for the second of three nights here at Yoshi's SF. Congrats to Marty S! See you there!  The night doesn't have to end there, cause *SOUL TRAIN REVIVAL* w/ ZIEK MCCARTER & THE REVIVAL BAND is going off at Boom Boom Room (*WIN).

Thursday, BISS favorite GLENN HARTMAN will be sitting in to play with ANDY AND THE PROSTITUTES (direct from the UK) at 10pm followed by GLENN HARTMAN & THE KEEPERS OF THE BUZZ at 50 Mason. NO COVER

Then we're gonna get sophisticated with the funk at SOPHISTAFUNK at Boom Boom Room (*WIN). Rooted by old school funk/hip hop, the trio explores electronic dance grooves while infusing each tune with soul and positively charged lyrics.

Friday & Saturday at The Regency Ball Room, it's the 2014 EDWARDIAN WORLD'S FAIRE AND BALL!!

The Edwardian World's Faire presents a Gorey-inspired night of music, theatrics, circus, fashion, gaming, and Edwardian-tinged rock n' roll. A little more rambunctious than the Saturday night Ball, The Faire is an interactive night of Barbary-themed Midway Games, bicycle-powered carnival rides by Cyclecide, an exposition of steam-powered machinery by Kinetic Steam Works, circus sideshows, burlesque, and this year, a complete circus extravaganza by the Vau de Vire Society. **TO ENTER TO WIN: EMAIL BISS@BISSLIST.COM AND TELL US WHY YOU SHOULD WIN TICKETS TO THE WORLD'S FAIR ON FRIDAY NIGHT! BE CREATIVE! THINK GOREY! THINK EDWARDIAN!

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. Attendees will be immersed into a stylish era of elaborately dressed, highfalutin' Edwardian period fashion, creative goth, steampunk attire and wacky, bizarre and macabre costumes inspired by the eccentric author/illustrator Edward Gorey.

If you aren't hitting both nights of the Edwardian World's Faire & Ball, you might wanna hit up one of the three nights of A Tribute to Sly & The Family Stone's Stand! Feat. Guest Music Director, David Möschler at The Independent (*WIN FRI or SAT) Awesöme Orchestra Collective feat. The Bengsons, Bayonics, Ensemble Mik Nawooj, Marcus Shelby, Jazz Mafiz feat. Crossroads, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Will Magid & Friends, Zakiya Harris, & Con Brio.

On Friday night, wherever you find yourself for the first part of the night, you MUST head to the Boom Boom Room for the likes of six times grammy winner IKE STUBBLEFIELD with EDDIE ROBERTS, JOHN STATEN, JOE COHEN plus DJ LOGIC. Happy Birthday Alexandra!!

Saturday, after the Edwardian Ball we end up... where? You'll never guess.  Yup, our favorite late night spot in the Fillmore district, The Boom Boom Room for ALPHABET SOUP (*WIN)! Where else would a BISS Lister go late night?

Sunday, big huge gigantic congratulations to Hellkat & Chickenhead as they celebrate their upcoming nuptials!

We had such a great time last Sunday night at Elbo room! We might just need to get back for more this weekend as DUB MISSION celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Wonderwheel Recordings with a Bay Area-exclusive show featuring NICKODEMUS (Turntables on the Hudson/Wonderwheel Recordings/NY) and THE SPY FROM CAIRO (aka Zeb) (Wonderwheel/Irma/ESL) (LIVE SET on oud and electronics) performing CALAMITY SAM & special guest plus DJ SEP. (*WIN)

Every Sunday gets better and better with Kevvy Kev's Return of The Cypher at BBR. NO COVER!
