Moving on from Thank you and to apologies...I am so sorry to anyone I may have forgotten in the list of thank yous. I am still recovering from it all and am not yet back to 100% brain power... I also apologize for not getting you a BISS List last week and being so out of touch we were in Gutarfish land. While we try to be huge in our coverage, we are small in numbers on staff to create this newsletter and the reality is that we are only human...(*see new contest below) But as Sunny always says... "Don't be sorry, be silly."  So let's move on to the upcoming fun in and around the Bay Area!

 
Tonight, Monday, our long time friends BLUES TRAVELER are playing at the Mountain Winery on the UNDER THE SUN TOUR with SMASH MOUTH, SUGAR RAY, & UNCLE KRACKER. Also down south, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is at the SAP Center. (Did I mention we should be silly?)

 
Tomorrow, Tuesday, ISRAEL VIBRATIONS plays just up the street from the BISS HQ at the Independent and we have tickets for YOU to *WIN*! (check for "how to win" below). In the East Bay, DONALD HARRISON QUINTET is at Yoshi's Oakland.  And back in San Jose the Mountain Winery continues to bring the big names with ZZ TOP & JEFF BECK on the BEARDS 'N BECK TOUR 2014. Keeping it local on Tuesday? How about getting down with *TIME WARP TUESDAYS* for free at The Boom Boom Room?!

 
Wednesday, it's starting to feel like a full week of nostalgia as DEEP PURPLE plays Mountain Winery, THE ORIGINAL WAILERS play The Mystic in Petaluma, and AEROSMITH plays Concord with LET ROCK RULE  W/ SLASH! Closer to home, BESO NEGRO WITH SLIM JENKINS, MARTY O'REILLY AND CARNY BASTARDS play Sweetwater in Mill Valley (*WIN).

 
Thursday, hopefully you are one of the lucky ones with a ticket to say Farewell to Candlestick with PAUL MCCARTNEY. Unfortunately, that's not me.  But I'm going to start my evening with PAMELA PARKER at 50 Mason. Then  head to the Indy to get my Reggae on with THE ORIGINAL WAILERS at The Independent (*WIN).  And then is that really THE ORB playing at the intimate little club known as Brick and Mortar? Yes, and you can *WIN* that one too!

 
Friday August 15th, its the dawning of a new music festival, For The Funk of It. It takes place in Belden 8.15 - 8.17 and features 20 Funk Bands: TRACORUM, DROP THEORY, THE NIBBLERS, FUNK REVIVAL ORCHESTRA, FUNKANAUTS,  HIGH BEAMZ, JELLYBREAD, MARK SEXTON, MISSION PLAYERS, MOJO GREEN, MOKSHA, STYMIE & THE PJLO, SWAMP ZEN, TERRAPLANE, ZUHG, BIG STICKY MESS, CITY OF TREES BRASS BAND, GROOVINCIBLE, IDEA TEAM, LITTLE PINE. Tickets are available at the gate for $100. (cash only please at the gate)

 
In the East Bay on Friday night, THE ORB, plays a second night in the bay at the newest & hottest venue, Leo's (*WIN). Also in the East Bay on Friday, COUNTING CROWS, TOAD THE WET SPROCKET, & DANIEL AND THE LION are at the Greek Theater. Feeling more like Afrobeat in the East Bay? LAGOS ROOTS is playing at Yoshi's in Oakland (*WIN).

 
Then again, I have no reason to leave the city let alone my own neighborhood with MIKE CLARK (HEADHUNTERS), SKERIK (LES CLAYPOOL), WIL BLADES (STANTON MOORE), & JEFF PARKER (TORTOISE) playing right up the street at The Boom Boom Room (*WIN).

 
There are TONS of other shows going on in the bay area on Friday night which we have listed in the calendar below... Just scroll down and check it all out! If you don't see the whole message, click the link above that says: "Having trouble viewing this email? Click here" If you want to see further out then one month, then go to www.bisslist.com and scroll down there until you see the Google Calendar. We keep that updated as far out as we can find!**submissions always welcome

 
Moving on to Saturday... Zodiacs is the place to be, for BISS favorite and long time friend, MARK KARAN (*WIN).  Here in the city, how about LYNYRD SKYNYRD at The Warfield (*WIN)? And of course, we'll end the night at Boom Boom Room for the second night of, MIKE CLARK, SKERIK, WIL BLADES, & JEFF PARKER.  Jen, you are gonna have a great time visiting me in SF!

 
Sunday, we should rest and start getting ready for the next upcoming events. But it has been a while since we made it to Boom Boom on a Sunday. And while I get to see Kevvy Kev perform at other shows, Return of the Cypher is something different and it never disappoints. And it's FREE so maybe we'll see you there.

 
Tuesday, 8/19, getting close enough to my birthday and ERIC LINDELL FEATURING ADAM THEIS OF JAZZ MAFIA is at Brick and Mortar. Sounds like a worthy start to my birthday week! And for that matter, who wants to be a designated bday DD for Zig at Yoshi's Oakland on the Thursday, the 21st? We'll talk more about this next week...
