BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 04.15.15 - HAPPY TAX DAY? / MARK SEXTON / VICTOR LITTLE / MOONALICE 420 PARTY / CONGRATS TO HUSHCONCERTS!

Happy Tax Day BISS Listers!  Yeah, I know "Happy" is kinda pushing it but I know I am at least happy it's over!  They say that nothing can be certain, except death and taxes. Well I am here to tell you, you can also be certain that BISS will lead you to the best live music in the Bay Area which will make you forget about all that other crap!


Tonight, we'll start early. Cause that last minute run to the Post Office by 5pm leaves me ready to get out of the house as soon as this letter is out to you!!


We'll start at Doc's Lab for the weekly Wednesday of JAZZ MAFIA PRESENTS, this week featuring THE HOGAN BROTHERS for FREE! From there, we head to Brick and Mortar to catch Humidors opening for MARK SEXTON BAND! **Congrats to Tony and Thanks to Britt!! Then we'll end our night with SOUL TRAIN REVIVAL featuring: ZIEK MCCARTER at Boom Boom Room **Congrats & Thanks to Phil!

Tomorrow, Thursday night, one of my local favorites, Victor Little with his band, VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT is at Boom Boom Room (*WIN!)! Though we know you will play later Vic, so we might swing by the Elbo Room on the way to catch AFROLICIOUS With DJ & Host PLEASUREMAKER plus Live Guests at Elbo Room (*WIN!)!!

Before we talk about Friday night, I want to give a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to HUSHconcerts (formerly SunsetSF and Silent Frisco) from everyone here at BISS and the entire crew! I can't wait to celebrate this new endeavor with you and your crew on Friday night!! Spread the word about the new company and the new name and the big party on Friday night at Mezzanine with THE FUNK HUNTERS, CHALI 2NA, JOE BAGALE, FORREST DAY, KEVIN WELCH, DJ ZEPH, MOTION POTION, NON STOP BHANGRA, DJ MATT HAZE, SHOUTS!, & U9LIFT at Mezzanine and you can (*WIN!)!! Or just RSVP athushconcerts.com to get in for FREE!

Even if you start your night with AMENDOLA vs. BLADES at Doc's Lab (*WIN!), you can still make it to the party at Mezzanine after so don't forget to #RSVP at hushconcerts.com!!

While I am definitely going to spend my night celebrating at Mezzanine and highly recommend you do as well, there are a TON of shows on Friday night in the bay!
