BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

NOLA BISS - JAZZ FEST 2015 SPECIAL EDITION!!!


Welcome to the NOLA BISS JAZZ FEST 2015 Special Edition!!

This NOLA edition is entirely based on submissions from our crew, venues, promoters, friends, & artists... It's completely biased as you like it!!  BYSS!  Check out the calendar listings below and all the chances you have to win tickets to shows in NOLA this year!!!

I would love to get into where I will be at this year's Jazz Fest but due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be able to attend this year! But I KNOW that you will all be great representation for me and the others on BISS crew who wish we could be there!

To the rest of you who wish you could be there, remember the first rule of BISS List: There is no such thing as FOMO!!! (Fear of Missing Out)  You are just somewhere else doing something else at that moment! I made up this rule one year at Jazz Fest after going and going and going and finding myself asleep when I "should" have been at the Fairgrounds. Then I realized that there was so much to do and so many places to be at any one moment down there that I wasn't actually "missing" anything! #theresnosuchthingasfomo

  


HOW CAN YOU WIN TICKETS?? Well let me tell you....

1) Look for shows listed below that say *WIN TICKETS* next to them. Or if you are lucky enough to be reading the email version, just look at the shows in the left column under the heading *WIN TICKETS*.
2) Spread the word about the show you want to win. Be creative! Facebook, email, Twitter, shout from the roof tops, print it out and hang it on the wall, etc.
3) Email biss@bisslist.com with proof of your efforts and let us know!
*NOTE: The more shows you spread the word about, the better your chances are to win the one you request!!


********
Rep for the BISS Crew at all the Shows!
WHO DAT!!??
