BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 02.24.16 : STU ALLEN / VOKAB COMPANY / NOISE POP / AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE & PETER JOSEPH BURTT / KATDELIC / ALO ALO ALO!!


**Thank you to BISS List Staff Writer, Arya Jha for guest writing this week's Best of the BISS... Take it away girl!

As February comes to an end, and spring weather rolls into the bay area, the motivation to go out on the town and boogie on down becomes increasingly evident. The longer days and warmer nights really have me dreaming of frolicking around this beautiful city every night. Luckily this next week has an incredible amount of music to keep us grooving into the wee hours of the morning! Here is the Best of BISS from February 24th to March 1st to help you figure out the best places to be this upcoming week.....

This Wednesday is an awfully exciting hump day for San Francisco! For those of you in the east bay, Ashkenaz is the place to be, as STU ALLEN & THE MARS HOTEL host their weekly Grateful Dead night. Be sure to enter to *WIN TICKETS* through BISS List. Over here in San Francisco, the VOKAB KOMPANY plus FEMME DEADLY VENOMS will be performing at the Great American Music Hall, providing a fun synthesized pop-rock sound that will be sure to please all crowds. Meanwhile the party will be going late at Monarch, as SMOKED OUT SOUL continues their bi-weekly residency and will be hosting a funky-remix dance party featuring special guest B. BRAVO. You can *WIN TICKETS* to Smoked Out Soul, so be sure to enter and get your dance party on!

Thursday, Noise Pop 2016 continues on to present KAMASI WASHINGTON and DJ TURF YARD at The Independent. In the past year, Kamasi Washington has gained a great deal of critical acclaim and popularity, so this show is going to be a killer performance. STANG will be playing late night blues at the Boom Boom Room, so be sure to head over there after, and enter to *WIN TICKETS* through BISS List! If you did not score tickets to Kamasi, head over to the Mission, as the Make Out Room is hosting DAVID JAMES (from Afrofunk Experience) GPS (Album Release Party) + GRINGA.

Thursday evening in Oakland is looking mighty fun, and you can *WIN TICKETS* to this stellar line up at Yoshi's: BLACK HISTORY FUNK III feat. ERIC "EQ" YOUNG & his"All Star Funk Band; with special guest performance by MZ SWITCHED UP, COLD FIRE HORNS & KATDELIC's very own RONKAT Spearman (one of the many P-Funk alumni)! For those of you north of San Francisco looking for live grooves on Thursday night, the GARCIA PROJECT and BUZZY MARTIN will be in Sebastopol at Hopmonk Tavern.

With that, brings the one and only Friday night, and an impossibly difficult lineup of live music to choose from. The AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE, PETER JOSEPH BURTT will be over at Ashkenaz in Berkeley & Mojo Green is in Sebastopol at Hopmonk Tavern; you can *WIN TICKETS* to both shows through BISS!

In San Francisco, Friday night will be the first night of a two night run as ALO takes the stage at The Fillmore. As an added bonus this show will be featuring STU ALLEN & THE MARS HOTEL! NAIVE MELODIES will be playing late night across the street at the Boom Boom Room so be sure to save some of those dance moves for the after party. As always, you can *WIN TICKETS* for both of those shows with BISS!

ALO will also be playing a show with MIKE LOVE at The Fillmore on Saturday night, and an extra adorably special event during the daytime on Saturday, as they host an ALO sing-along with Kids. *WIN TICKETS* to Saturday night's ALO show with BISS! LAKE STREET DIVE will be soulfully swinging Saturday night over at the Masonic for those of you looking for a strong female vocalist to get down to, and a great NorCal option is THE MOTHER HIPS are performing at Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol.

On Sunday, Sweetwater Music Hall will be extra funk as the P-FUNK family host a Dance Party with KATDELIC (of Parliament Funkadelic) & "Special Guests" including RICHIE NAGAN from P Funk Allstars and SIRIKU. *WIN TICKETS* to this show with BISS. Over at Oakland's Fox Theater a wide variety of tunes will be a great option to end your weekend right, as Surfing to Shockwave with JOE SATRIANI with MARCO MINNEMANN, BRYAN BELLER and MIKE KENEALLY perform.

Ditch those Monday blues, because you can headbang your way into MEGADETH as they play at The Warfield along with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, CHILDREN OF BODOM & HAVOK. On Tuesday a new music venue is opening over at Berkeley called The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall, Berkeley, CA!! Their opening show has BEST COAST, WAVVES & CHERRY GLAZERR performing. On the same night you can *WIN TICKETS* over at Doc's Lab in North Beach to Tuesday's Goose: The LUCY ARNELL EXPERIMENT and REVUE -LEE GALLAGHER and the HALLELUJUAH & MAD ALCHEMY.

Woah, there is clearly a lot of spring time fun to be had! Luckily you have BISS over here to help you sort through the plethora of music choice in the bay this upcoming month.
