Happy Thanksgiving week BISS Listers! What are you thankful for? We here at BISS are thankful for all of you. Without you, who would be reading BISS? To show our thanks, we bring you a full sized helping of musical choices this week! Those of you who stick around for Thanksgiving each year already know that this is one of the best week's for live music all year long!


Start by filling up on these musical appetizers on Wednesday night as you get ready to fill up your stomachs on Thanksgiving Day...


Doobie Decibel System will be performing at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Wednesday, November 26 with New Riders of the Purple Sage. Every guest attending the event will receive an amazing poster by Alexandra Fischer, her third in the series. If you can't attend this show, watch the free live video stream provided by MoonTunes™ atDDSband.com.


Also in the city on Wednesday, North Beach Brass Band is at Doc's Lab (*WIN). The Brothers Comatose & T Sisters are at The Chapel (*WIN)*, and Brokedown in Bakersfield, Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum are at The Independent.


In the north bay, Vinyl is at Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN). And in Napa, Robert Hunter plays a three night run (with a break for turkey) of his 1st CA shows in 10 years at City Winery in Napa.


Thursday is Turkey Day! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  If you wanna get out and move around to shake off that big long meal on Thursday night you have 2 choices and I would suggest you just hit them both! At the Boom Boom Room, it's "Pass The Gravy!" with DJ Kevvy Kev. That's a Freee Show!!  At the Elbo Room, it's "Hi Life Thanksgiving!",  A Night of Funkified-Electro-Tropical-Hi-Vibrations With Resident DJs Pleasuremaker & Izzy Wise plus guests at Elbo Room (*WIN).


Friday is really the main course of this Thanksgiving weekend with no less than 20 shows listed on the BISS List calendar for this Black Friday! Or as our friend's at Jammin on Haight like to call it Black Fridye, as in the third annual Jammin on Haight Black Fridye Fashion Show!  It's a Jammin Psychedelic Fashion Show with Epic Tie-Dye Rainbows and the Latest in Tie-Dye Fashion w/ band featuring Papa Mali (7 Walkers) Ike Stubblefield (Stevie Wonder/Temptations/ Curtis Mayfield) Jay Lane (Primus), Bobby Vega (Sly & The Family Stone/ KVHW/ Zero) &.  Sunshine Becker (Furthur). Dinner sold at event from SOUL GROOVE at The Red Vic Hotel @1665 Haight Street, 7pm.


Also Friday, here in the city, it's In the Soul Kitchen Dance Party with Harry Duncan & DJ Slopoke at  Doc's Lab, Jackie Greene with The Coffis Brothers at The Fillmore, The first night of All In The Family: Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn at SF JAZZ @ Miner Auditorium, and KATDELIC* [of 'P Funk Allstars'] with special Guest Martin Luther McCoy  (gtr/Vocals - The Roots)+ DJ Kevvy Kev at Boom Boom Room (*WIN).


Friday you can also head north for Beso Negro at  Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN) or PATO BANTON lights up Black Friday + LUMANATION at 19 Broadway. In Petaluma,  New Riders of the Purple Sage plus Moonalice (with Poster Artist by Chris Shaw) are at McNear's Mystic Theatre. Also in Petaluma on Friday, it's the 4 Horsemen with Mark Karan, Mitch Stein, Robin Sylvester & Kevin Hayes at Zodiacs.


Saturday, for your second main course, because you still want more and you're not quite ready for that yummy dessert, join Jammin On Haight's, second night of Pranksgiving Weekend for the second year of the Annual Panty party at the Boom Boom Room (*WIN). Come for the FREE Tie-dye panties and stay for the band which features *PAPA MALI & IKE STUBBLEFIELD* with the Boom Boom Room All Stars (Jay Lane, Victor Little, Joe Cohen)!


In the East Bay, at Starry Plough, Happy Birthday to Eric "Magic Fingers" McFadden!! Have a great BirthdaY BasH featuring Bay Area All-Stars & the Jenny Kerr Band!


Still hungry for more in the city on Saturday? Jackie Greene with Tango Alpha Tango is at The Fillmore, Midtown Social and Afrolicious are at The Chapel (*WIN), and Tea Leaf Green with Loyal Scam is at The Independent (*WIN).


Some people think of Sunday as the day of rest, but this week Sunday is known as "dessert"...Rounding out the Jammin on Haight Pranksgiving Weekend, spend an afternoon with Rhoney Stanely & Bob Minkin featuring their Books "OWSLEY AND ME: MY LSD FAMILY" & "LIVE DEAD-THE GRATEFUL DEAD PHOTOGRAPHED"  at Jammin on Haight, on the corner of Haight & Masonic, 1400 Haight Street, SF.


Then for the cherry on top, pick any of these fabulous options on Sunday night...


Go South to Moe's Alley for New Riders Of The Purple Sage + special guests DOOBIE DECIBEL SYSTEM featuring Jason Crosby & Roger McNamee. Everyone attending the event will receive an amazing poster by Lauren Yurkovich, her first in the series.

You can also go north, to Sweetwater Music Hall for Dennis McNally & Greg Anton Book Release Party with music from 'I Know You Writer' feat Greg Anton, Melvin Seals, Barry Sless, Mark Karan, Robin Sylvester & Special Guests (*WIN).


Or stay right here in the city, for Dub Mission presents the best in Dub, Roots Reggae & Dancehall with DJ Sep and Vinnie Esparza  at  Elbo Room (*WIN) or Return of the Cypher * Freestyle Hip-Hop * DJ Kevvy Kev * The Gemstone Band * FREE Party!  at  Boom Boom Room.
