BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 07.11.14 - OPULENT TEMPLE / SAMBADÁ / XAVIER RUDD / WILLIE WALDMAN / FUNKY METERS/ GUITARFISH MUSIC FESTIVAL AUGUST 1, 2, & 3

Happy Friday BISS Listers!  Have you missed me and your weekly dose of BISS List? I am sure any of you who attended, know the magic that is High Sierra Music Festival so I don't have to tell you about it. It's been my favorite of all festivals for many many years as I know it has been for many of you.  That is of course until BISS & I became involved with another magical festival in 2011 called Guitarfish Music Festival.  It's coming up for the 4th year in a row in just over two weeks on August 1st, 2nd, & 3rd at Cisco Grove Campground in Soda Springs, CA just 20 miles west of Truckee off of highway 80.

GUITARFISH MUSIC FESTIVAL brings you the magical vibe of music and style that makes you never want to leave and when you finally go home, you can't wait to do it again next year. Going into our fourth year, it's a BISS Listers dream festival. I created this newsletter 10 years ago because I recognized the community of music lovers that we have here in the bay area. Guitarfish brings all the little music loving communities from Northern California including San Francisco, Sacramento, Tahoe and everything around and in between, together for a weekend of all our favorite bands in a beautiful campground and it's not even very far from home.

Guitarfish is not just another music festival. We truly have something for everyone whether you are hanging with the family in the Starfish Kids Activities area, getting out on one of our FREE group mountain biking rides, dipping your toes in the swimming hole that is right on the festival site, taking early morning yoga from Andrea Brook under the beautiful Sonic Butterfly Harp, shopping & eating with our craft & food vendors, or grooving all night long to the Space Cowboys.

Thanks to our visionary and master vibe-entaor, Mr. Brent Dana of Big Tree Productions, the line up is even more stellar this year than ever.  We have NICKI BLUHM & THE GRAMBLERS, PIMPS OF JOYTIME, EVERYONE ORCHESTRA, CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS, SPACE COWBOYS, MOTHER HIPS, EDDIE ROBERTS WEST COAST SOUNDS, LEBO & FRIENDS, SAMBADA, DOGON LIGHTS, ZONGO JUNCTION, GUITARMAGEDDON, YO MAMAS BIG FAT BOOTY, JOY & MADNESS, WHEELAND BROTHERS, TRACORUM, WILL MAGID 5, LECHE DE TIGRE, CON BRIO, JIMMY LESLIE & THE FLOW, THE GREASE TRAPS, TIM SNIDER TRIO, PETER JOSEPH BURTT & THE KING TIDE, ANDREA BROOK "SONIC BUTTERFLY", & SAMBA STILT CIRCUS.

I am offering a BISS discount to our subscribers to save you 10 dollars off your 3 day ticket as a thank you for your support of the BISS List over the years. Another discount of note...We have 10 packs available that saves you $30 per ticket if you have a group of friends to go in together.
Use promo code: BISSLOVESYOU to save $10 off your 3 day!!

Wanna win a pair of tickets to the 4th annual Guitarfish Music Festival? One of our long time BISS supporters has donated a pair of tickets to a lucky BISS Lister who does the best promotion over the next 2 weeks! (Thank you sir!!!) To enter to win, post the event on Facebook & Twitter and take pictures of yourself with a Guitarfish Music Festival poster or handbill wherever you may find one! (or pick some up to distribute yourself) Then emailbiss@bisslist.com to tell us where & when. Frequency counts! If you have any questions, thoughts, or comments, please email us!

Now while I may be deeply involved in Guitarfish for the next 20 days, 17 hours, 20 minutes, & 8 seconds until the gates open, you may be looking to your friends here at BISS to keep the music coming! Don't worry, BISS and the bay area music scene will not disappoint you!

Tonight, Friday, we celebrate two 29th birthdays of two of the most beautiful women I know at the Sausalito Jazz & Blues by the Bay. Happy Birthday Holly & Raquel!  And while I'm on the birthday topic, Happy Bday to one of my long time best friends, Jeff aka Bitty!

Later tonight, GRANT GREEN JR. w/ DONALD HARRISON, WIL BLADES, BRANDON ETZLER & very special guests are at Boom Boom Room (*WIN) while  LA GENTE, CANDELARIA, KUSH ARORA, and RASA VITALIA are at Elbo Room.

Then it's Go Big to Go Home, with one last party to helpOPULENT TEMPLE reach their Tipping Point to make it happen in the desert this year. The event starts at 9:30 and goes til 4am featuring  CRYSTAL METHOD, APHRODITE & FUNKAGENDA (*WIN).

In the East Bay tonight, Guitarfish fave, SAMBADÁcelebrates the release of their new album, Ritual at Ashkenaz (*Congrats to Kristin!)

If you are feeling more nostalgic tonight, you can go withNEW ORDER at Bill Graham Civic or TONY! TONI! TONE! at Yoshi's SF.

Tomorrow, Saturday, after a full day of working on the best upcoming festival, I'm gonna keep it close to the Fillmore hood with XAVIER RUDD at the FIllmore (Congrats to Phaedra & Sarah!) and then head straight across the street to the Boom Boom Room for my friend and amazing trumpet player, Willie Waldman.  The Willie Waldman Project features WILLIE WALDMAN (Trumpet, FX of SnoopDog), NORWOOD FISHER (Bass of FISHBONE), BRADLEY LEACH (Drums of MARTIN FIERRO), BRIAN JORDAN (Guitar of KDTU & LAURYN HILL), STEVE MACKAY (Sax of THE STOOGES), CB & MIC BLAKE (MCs of Alphabet Soup) PLUS
DJ Kevvy Kev (*WIN)!

Sunday, I'm getting up early to head to Stern Grove to get a good spot and spend the afternoon getting down with my friends and FUNKY METERS! Then keep it free Sunday night with DJ KEVVY KEV'S RETURN OF THE CYPHER at Boom Boom Room. Always a good solid night of hip hop. Looking for a little OLD school hip hop Sunday night? DMC (as in Run) is playing at Neck of the Woods (tho not free)....

Then let's look ahead a bit into next week, Wednesday night has two really good shows and you can win tickets from BISS to either one! That's MINGO FISHTRAP at Yoshi's SF or THE POLYPHONIC SPREE at Slim's!  By now, you probably know how to win but if you don't, scroll down until you see the bright yellow section that says HOW TO WIN TICKETS!
