BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 06.17.15 - MOONALICE / JOE COHEN BDAY SHOW / ORGONE w/ Nth POWER plus POLYRHYTHMICS / IKE STUBBLEFIELD / HUSHFEST!

Is Summer really here BISS Listers?! Is it the sunny & warm weather that makes it feel like summer around here? Ha! Not in San Francisco! Is it the camping gear inventory I've got going in my hallway as I get ready for the summer festival season? Maybe. It could be the costume planning sessions for the theme days at HIGH SIERRA (Jul 2 - Jul 5). Or it could be all the planning & logistics I have in the works for GUITARFISH MUSIC FESTIVAL (Jul 30 - Aug 2). Yes, it's probably that too. But the real sign that summer is upon us? When the musical calendar heats up this much with no signs of cool down for months to come! #musicalinsanity

There are actually 305 shows in our BISS List master list between today and September 1st. We have probably even missed a show or two. (let us know!) Believe it or not, I cannot actually go to every show that is on the BISS List each week. Though back in the day, it was known to happen. So here is my short list & schedule of BISS picks over the next two weeks... feel free to create your own after you check out the BISS GOOGLE CALENDAR.

6.17 @ 6PM : Union Square LIVE: MOONALICE at Union Square. FREE! All attendees will receive a free copy of Darrin Brenner's poster (see left)! His 25th poster in the Moonalice series. If you can't make this show, join us on Couch Tour for the free HD video stream provided by MoonTunes™ at Moonalice.com.

6.17 @ 9PM : JOE COHEN SHOW BIRTHDAY BASH w/ Victor Little, Deszon Claiborne, and Mike Wynar at Blondie's! FREE! Happy Birthday Joe & & Happy Birthday to my sister and nephew! Had a blast hanging out with all of you here in SF!

In Moraga, CA on 6.18 @ 6:30PM: MOONALICE is performing at the Moraga Summer Concert Series for FREE! According to Moonalice legend, Pat and George Sargent teamed up to design a divine poster for the Summer Concert Series in Moraga Common Park next Thursday June 18, 2015! This is The Sargent's 8th poster in the Moonalice series. Everyone present will receive a free copy!

Back here in the city on 6.18 @ 7PM : DANGERATE (Sean Eshia,Tiger Kotschnig, Daniel Cohen) with DJ Zut are at The Honey Hive (*WIN*).

6.19 @ 9PM : ORGONE (#GMF2015) with Nth POWER plus POLYRHYTHMICS (#GMF2015)! #doubledose #GuitarfishMusicFestival2015 #wintickets
At de Lorimier Winery MOONALICE plays at 6PM for FREE! According to Moonalice legend, Alexandra Fischer designed an amazing poster (see left) for the Summer Series at deLorimier Winery in Geyserville, California this Friday June 19, 2015! This is Alex's 155th poster in the Moonalice series everyone attending will receive a free copy!
6.19 Late night: After Orgone, we only have to cross the street for IKE STUBBLEFIELD w/ Dave Shul, Jay Lane, Danny Louis & Joe Cohen plus DJ Kevvy Kev at Boom Boom Room (*WIN*). #nightoneoftwo #alwaysagoodtime #nodoubt

6.20 @ 1pm : HUSHconcerts presents the latest & greatest venue HUSHFEST: OAKLAND @ JACK LONDON SQUARE: BRASS TAX DJ'S, DAVEY D, RICKEY VINCENT, MOTION POTION, DJ PLATURN, REN THE VINYL ARCHAEOLOGIST, DJ MANCUB, ERNIE TREVINO, JOEJOE, HAUTE MESS, MACE, & MARKY RAY at JACK LONDON SQUARE (*WIN*)

I would love to say that I could make it back to the city after HUSHFest, regroup and then get over the bridge for ERIC LINDELL & CO. with Anson Funderburgh at Sweetwater Music Hall (*WIN*). But I know one (or two) of you want to spread the word to win a pair of tickets and represent for me so enter to win and save me!

Then again, maybe we should stay in the East Bay after HUSHFEST and head over to Ashkenaz for MOONALICE (*WIN*). According to Moonalice legend, John Seabury designed a classic for the show at Ashkenaz Community Center in Berkeley, CA on Saturday, June 20, 2015! This is John's 26th poster in the Moonalice series and everyone attending this special two set show will receive a free copy!

It's possible that I could regroup and make it to EASY STAR ALL-STARS w/ WHEELAND BROTHERS, & DUB ARCHITECT at Slim's (*WIN*) right here in the city.

I can tell you that it's definite that I will make it on 6.20 for round two of IKE STUBBLEFIELD at Boom Boom Room w/ DAVE SHUL, JAY LANE, DANNY LOUIS & JOE COHEN plus DJ KEVVY KEV (*WIN*).

Oh hey, you like volunteering to work events? High Times NorCal Cannabis Cup2015 is in need of volunteers to assist in set up and operations of the event, held at Daly City's Cow Palace. Shifts are available June 16-21 with the event running June 20-21. Volunteers are compensated with 2-day event admission for volunteering a minimum of one 5-hour shift. To register, or for more details, visithttps://hightimes.festivol.net/norcal

Speaking of volunteering, Guitarfish Music Festival (#GMF2015) is still accepting volunteer applications: http://ht.ly/Oqrmd

That second late night may have some impact on my abilities to get up early on Sunday to make it to second day of the 1ST ANNUAL KPFA SUMMER ARTS FAIR AT CRANEWAY PAVILION (*WIN*) on 6.20 @ 10am but I am thinking about it. The KPFA Summer Arts Fair will feature the original work of over 200 exhibitors in 24 categories, with an array of gorgeous body adornments and a compelling selection of decorative items for the home.

Sunday night I am hoping that timing might work out just right so I can catch both of these shows:

6.21 @ 7pm : GREG ANTON in conversation with STEVE KIMOCK plus Acoustic Concert featuring STEVE KIMOCK, GREG ANTON, DAVID NELSON, BANANA, PAUL KNIGHT and special guests at Great American Music Hall (*WIN*)

6.21 @ 8pm : ROBIN TROWER with Strange Vine at The Fillmore (*WIN*)

Such an unbelievable week of music and you probably haven't even read the rest of the BISS List picks we have found for you this week. Check it out below or on our web site www.bisslist.com or on our Google Calendar (which is also on the web site).

But who says we have to stop at Sunday...? I said we don't (#BISS)!!

So let's look at next week's agenda...

6.22 @ 7:30PM : WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY PLUS ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION featuring JERRY DOUGLAS (I wish!) at Mountain Winery.

6.23 @ 9PM : TUESDAYS WITH THE T'S - Soulstice: Souls of Oakland: T SISTERS (#GMF2015), Special Collaboration Dijon of Souls of Society, Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman, Adam Lowdermilk, Mix'd Ingrdnts dance crew at Leo's (*WIN*).

then...

6.25 @ 9PM (I'll be late) : JOHNNY V WEST COAST QUARTET: JOHNNY VIDACOVICH, REED MATHIS, WILL BERNARD, & WIL BLADES at Leo's (*WIN*).

6.25 @ 11:59PM : GLEN DAVID ANDREWS at Boom Boom Room (*WIN*)

6.26 @ 9PM : BOOTSY'S RUBBER BAND at The Fillmore (*WIN*) (unless I magically find myself at LET IT ROCK: REX FOUNDATION BENEFIT w/ CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD, MELVIN SEALS & JGB at Warfield)

6.26 @ 9PM (2nd chance to see & win) JOHNNY V WEST COAST QUARTET w/JOHNNY VIDACOVICH, REED MATHIS, WILL BERNARD & WIL BLADES plus Mo'Fone at Brick & Mortar (*WIN*).

6.26 @ 11:59PM GLEN DAVID ANDREWS at Boom Boom Room (*WIN*).

I know I don't need to state the obvious about next Saturday and Sunday but I will anyway...

6.27 & 6.28 @ Levi's Stadium : The original members of Grateful Dead - MICKEY HART, BILL KREUTZMANN, PHIL LESH, AND BOB WEIR - are performing two additional shows at Levi's® Stadium in Santa Clara, California as part of their "FARE THEE WELL: CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF GRATEFUL DEAD" run. Along with the three shows at Chicago's Soldier Field on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, the run will mark the original members' last-ever performances together. The band will be joined by TREY ANASTASIO (guitar), JEFF CHIMENTI (keyboards), and BRUCE HORNSBY (piano) and perform two sets of music each night.
Why yes, there is a party bus each night!!

This takes us through to Monday the 29th when I will be finishing up all my packing to leave the next day for the 25th annual High Sierra Music Festival. Wow! I better get some sleep! I have a lot of work to get done this week and still get out to see all this music!
