MISS BISS LIST HAS RETURNED HOME!!!! Oh how we missed you Pamazing...you are the sparkle in our lives...we can't wait to see you out and about this weekend so we can give you a big ole squeeze!  But we do understand if you need some recovery time...3 weeks in NOLA...talk about a marathon!

While Miss BISS has been out of town the music has still been flowing...what an epic PRINCE tribute that KARL DENSON & HIS TINY UNIVERSE did with ZEIK MCCARTER crushing the Prince moves at the Fillmore last weekend!!!  THe past few days we have been getting down to VIOLENT FEMMES at the Fillmore as well.

Thursday kicks off the JOSHUA TREE MUSIC FESTIVAL (Guitarfish Partners!!!!) with DUMPSTAPHUNK, DAKHABRAKHA, TYLER BRYANT & THE SHAKEDOWN, THE MAIN SQUEEZE, HAMSA LILA, VIR, INKX & EVAN, SUNQUABI....and so many more!  Make sure you check out this festival it is not to be missed and you know the BISS crew will be there!

Thursday starts a three day run of STEVE KIMOCK & FRIENDS including JEFF CHIMENTI, BOBBY VEGA, JAY LANE, LESLIE MEDELSON & special guests at Sweetwater...these shows are sure to knock yoursocks off and slap you a couple times!

Friday besides night two of the Joshua Music Festival & Steve Kimock check out HOT BUTTERED RUM at the Fillmore or LOS LOBOS at the UC Theatre in Berkley.

Saturday get up early and saunter down to Yerba Buena Gardens to check out a Free CON BRIO show at noon! Saturday night put on your best Meow ears and get ready to get funky with KATDELIC at The Boom Boom Room!

And maybe have oysters for Sunday brunch so you can think about NOLA all over again, but don't rest too much...CHARLES BRADLEY is at the Fillmore on Tuesday and Wednesday...and you know what that means...

TIME TO GET FUNKY...and BISSful!
