Hey BISS Listers! The first month of 2016 is coming to an end... Let's continue celebrating the new year with the awesome shows that are happening this weekend.

Friday, in the East Bay, STS9 takes you to a digital planet at The Fox. While in the North Bay, get warmed up for Jazz Fest (get your rooms now people!) with the NEW ORLEANS SUSPECTS at Sweetwater (*WIN*). 

In the city, the Jazz Fest warm up is in full effect with the first of two nights at the Independent with SOUL REBELS plus GENE WASHINGTON & THE IRONSIDES opening on Friday night (*WIN*)! Also in the city, Goldenvoice presents THE MAIN SQUEEZE plus JELLY BREAD at The Chapel (*WIN*). If that isn't funky enough for you, you can funk it up with THE JAMES BROWN DANCE PARTY featuring Elise Testone, Jerry Poindexter (James Brown), Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Reed Mathis (Billy And The Kids, Tea Leaf Green), Uriah Duffy (Sly & The Family Stone, CeeLo Green), Elizabeth Lea (Tedeschi Trucks, John Legend, Eric Clapton), Chris Bautista (Jamie Lidell, Tenacious D), Adam Chase (JB Dance Party, Jazz Is Phish), Matthew Chase (JB Dance Party, Jazz Is Phish) at The Mezzanine. Wow! That is a high kicking line up right there!! Finish your Friday night out late with W-BEEZ featuring WILL BERNARD, WIL BLADES, JOE COHEN & JAY LANE at the Boom Boom Room (*WIN*)...always keeping your night funky!

Saturday night, HUSHconcerts & The Janky Barge present DJ ICEY @ THE 11TH ANNUAL ICEBREAKERS BALL feat ZACH MOORE, VITAMINDEVO, MOTION POTION, SHOUTS!, MATT HAZE, U9LIFT, MY PET MONSTER, RA VARUNA, PHLECK, & SNARKLE at Mighty (*WIN*). It's also night two of THE SOUL REBELS at the Independent with BISS fave RONKAT'S KATDELIC opening up. Not to mention, La Gente's CD Release and Return from Colombia show with LoCura, 2nd Floor Samurais, & DJ Izzy Wise at The Chapel (*WIN*) . Then head over to the Boom Boom Room for late night with VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT featuring members of Lyrics Born, Booker T, Robert Walter, & Alphabet Soup (*WIN*). If you make it out early on Saturday, head down to Super Bowl City at Pier 70 to check out CHRIS ISAAK at the Bay Bridge Relighting with Fireworks for FREE (7pm).

Sunday night, the Fillmore will be phantastic phun with MIKE GORDON (Phish) thumping it out on the bass. Congrats to BISS winners Sarah & Corey! Or, take it old school with BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY and bust out the OG dance moves at the Regency Ballroom.

And that brings January to a close...we better get ready for February...with the SUPER BOWL, THE MOTET, NEW MASTERSOUNDS & MARDI GRAS just to name a few...
