In Conjunction with Miss BISS

What's up BISS Listers?! What a weekend we all just had at the 6th Annual Guitarfish Music Festival!! Have no fear, here at BISS, we live like the weekend never ends here in the Bay... This weekend we'll be serving up another plate of awesomeness!

Tonight! We have MOONALICE in Guerneville Plaza for the Rockin' the River Community Concerts! What a treat! I love it up there!  Every guest in attendance will receive a FREE copy of a classic poster designed by the legendary Stanley Mouse!  In Santa Rosa, tearing up the stage with powerful female awesomeness, is Joan Jett and the Blackhearts at Luther Burbank Center! SNARKY PUPPY kicks off their first of five sets at Miner Auditorium tonight as well! It would be quite a shame to miss at least one of them! Last, but not least, we have SEAN LEAHY's BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA with REACTION JACKSON/DJ ZEB EARLY over at the Ivy Room (**WIN TICKETS**)!

On Friday, we kick off OUTSIDE LANDS with LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, J. COLE, BEACH HOUSE, DURAN DURAN, VULFPECK, and NATHANIEL RATELIFF headlining that party! Tons of other bands not to miss! At Miner Auditorium we have another night with the oh so popular, SNARKY PUPPY! Get on it! Also in the city, SambaDá & Afrofunk Experience at Great American Music Hall.

For you East Bay folks, we have MACY GRACY for her first of two nights at Yoshi's (**WIN TICKETS**) and STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL over at, my favorite, Ashkenaz (**WIN TICKETS**)!

OUTSIDE LANDS brings us some incredible acts come Saturday. To mention just a few:  RADIOHEAD, AIR, CON BRIO, PEACHES, BIG GRAMS, ANDERSON. PAAK & THE FREE NATIONALS, SUFJAN STEVENS, THE NATIONALS, THE WOMBATS, LORD HURON, and so so so much more! Wish I could be there to get down with yall!

For the OUTSIDE LANDS after parties,  hit up the OUTSIDE LANDS ALL-STAR FUNK, SOUL, JAM SHOW WITH GREYHOUNDS & BREAKIN' BREAD - including members of MOFRO, VINYL, & MONOPHONICS (**WIN TICKETS**)! GREYHOUNDS is an incredible Austin based duo bringing funk, blues, R&B, & rock all in one awesome concoction of dance medicine...we at the BISS headquarters are saying it's a good place to be!  For another late night funky dance party, going even later, check out KATDELIC + BIG STICKY MESS (**WIN TICKETS**) at Boom Boom Room

Across the GG bridge in the North Bay, we have the PETALUMA MUSIC FESTIVAL happenin' on Saturday...lot's of amazing acts over there. A few to keep in mind would be JACKIE GREENE, THE MOTHER HIPS, MOONALICE, MARK KARAN, THE SAM CHASE, THE HIGHWAY POETS, STEVE KIMOCK & FRIENDS, DAVID NELSON BAND, JOY & MADNESS, and more! Lot's of SF favorites over there! Joy & Madness just gave us an awesome set at Guitarfish this past weekend!

Don't forget, TRAIN + THE ENGLISH BEAT will be at Ironstone Amphitheatre too! You know Murphys, CA, where Ironstone Amphitheatre is, has been called "The Next Napa"? Why not give it a go this weekend if you haven't been!


8/7/2016OUTSIDE LANDS NIGHT SHOW- GRiZ, LETTUCE (SOLD OUT) at The Independent

Sunday is incredible! OUTSIDE LANDS is bringing the thunder with LIONEL RICHE, LANA DEL RAY, MAJOR LAZER, RYAN ADAMS, MIGUEL, JASON ISBELL, THIRD EYE BLIND, GRIZ, LETTUCE, THE OH HELLOS, and so much more your feet are gonna jump right out of their boots! If you're not heading into the city, one of my favorite groups, and inspiration for buying a classical guitar, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA will be at Luther Burbank Center! If you haven't caught them somewhere yet, I highly recommend it! Mountain Winery is filled with the new drug that you need... which of course is HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS on Sunday night too! I'm sure my good bud, Dallas, will be there sporting his famous Huey dance moves - ten bucks to anyone that sends me a photo since I'll be jetting off to Colorado for a bit.

Wait! Sunday isn't done yet! You are invited to get on the love train with THE O'JAYS, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, at Stern Grove! They will be bringing 50+ years of classic booty shakin' fun! You'd be silly to miss such a great FREE show in our own backyard! Show starts at 2pm. But get there early to get a good spot!

Sunday night, if you are one of the lucky ones that tickets to the OSL night show at The Indy, take Miss BISS with you!! How could it have not been SOLD OUT with GRiZ & LETTUCE!!?

After your weekend break on Monday, we have an excellent tweener at Sweetwater Music Hall. SUNSHINE GARCIA BECKER, ROBIN SYLVESTER, DANNY EISENBERG, MATT HARTLE, & EZRA LIPP + SPECIAL GUESTS will be giving us a damn good precursor party to Jerry Day later this week!

If you are more in the mood for some Mississippi blues on Tuesday night, head to Boom Boom Room for LIGHTNIN' MALCOM (**WIN TICKETS**)!

If you are looking for sweet, soulful songs to fill your heart, GREGORY ALAN ISAKOV will be performing at The Fox. If you are still feeling Jerry Day, Stu Allen and Mars Hotel at Ashkenaz ( **WIN TICKETS**) is the place for you! And if you are looking for a down and dirty dance party, Smoked Out Soul Celebrates Will Magid's Dirty Thirty w/ Gordo Cabeza (MOM DJs,) King Most, Champagne Duane & More at Monarch (**WIN TICKETS**).
