BISS LIST 09.13.16 :: AFTER BURN / MOONALICE / BLACK SABBATH / SHARON JONES / FLYING LOTUS / KIMOCK / SOUND SUMMIT / SHAKEDOWN ST. FEST

Best of the BISS List
By BISS Staff Writer: Casey Sol
In Conjunction with Miss BISS

How was your Burn my dear BISS List Followers? Mine was a mix of emotions, connections, disconnections, highs, lows, and everything in between. It was healing, terrifying, debilitating, epic, enlightening, toughening, empowering, softening, hardening, breathtaking, heartbreaking and some might  even say Pamazing, and all on so many levels for so many reasons.... They say "The Playa provides... " I've learned that it doesn't always provide what we hoped for but sometimes it's taking what is thrown at us and accepting and adjusting and moving through it. Easier said than done, isn't it?

Back here in the default world, also known as the SF Bay Area... let's take time to reflect on the awesome summer we just had and dance right on into Fall! As always, we have an excellent assortment of shows to get you lacing up your dancing shoes so let's dive right into the BEST of the BISS this week!

On Wednesday, celebrate Hump Day by heading over to Union Square to catch a FREE show with MOONALICE! Everyone attending will receive a beautifully crafted poster by Alexandra Fischer! If you're out in the East Bay, it's never a bad idea to check out STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL at Ashkenaz (**WIN TICKETS**)! We have another pair of tickets to give to one of you awesome BISS Listers for TIM BLUHM (The Mother Hips), ANDY CABIC (Vetiver), & JOHNNY IRION (U.S. Elevator) at Sweetwater Music Hall (**WIN TICKETS**). All sides of the Bay are covered with free music opportunities Wednesday! Jump on it!

Thursday, BLACK SABBATH takes the stage at Oracle Arena...I might even be able to hear that show from my roof in Oakland! They have a good tour out this way before heading to South America and Europe later on this year - don't miss 'em while they're here! Up in Calpine, the absolutely adorable and charming, Sierra Valley Lodge, hosts (((FOLKYEAH!))) PRESENTS BRETT DENNEN + LILY & MADELEINE and we would love to send you there (**WIN TICKETS**)! It's a great little get away! Over at The Fox, we have the first of two nights (Friday is already sold out so make sure to hop on this one ASAP!) with FLYING LOTUS and FUNKADELIC featuring GEORGE CLINTON + SHABAZZ PALACES, THUNDERCAT, & THE GASLAMP KILLER.

Coming in hot on Friday, SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS will be bringing some funk and soul into The Catalyst down in Santa Cruz...totally worth the beautiful drive down the coast! At the Great American, KIMOCK w/ special guests, will be sure to leave you amazed and wanting more. Over at Ashkenaz, if you're looking for some high energy dancing, Santa Cruz based band, SAMBADA, is right up your alley with their Afro-Brazilian-Funk beats...plus most of the members have professional dancing backgrounds - all signs point to YES on fun for sure (**WIN TICKETS**). If you're looking for a little adventure outside the city on Friday, LUCINDA WILLIAMS with special guests THE MAVERICKS are playing at Mountain Winery and with a little help from Miss BISS, you could be taking that girl from the coffee shop on the cutest date...for FREE (**WIN TICKETS**)!

On Saturday, we have SOUND SUMMIT featuring WILCO, LOS LOBOS, BILL FRISELL'S GUITAR IN THE SPACE AGE, THE STONE FOXES and more at the beautiful & historic Mountain Theater! Can't beat the views from there! In the East Bay, the SHAKEDOWN STREET FESTIVAL is going to be the hot spot to be for sure!  The festival is a FREE event from 1-9pm to celebrate The Grateful Dead and the community surrounding the band with two whole days of live music, vendors, sunshine, and dancing! This year we have CRYPTICAL & FRIENDS (Stu Allen, Dave Herbert, Sunshine Becker, Mitch Stein, Peter Lavezzoli, & more), ACHILLES WHEEL, TV MIKE & THE SCARECROWES, & MORE! For some fun in the city, head over to Golden Gate Park for TOUR DE FAT featuring DR. DOG and SISTER SPARROW & THE DIRTY BIRDS! Great daytime fun with New Belgium, Bikes, and tunes! ((Special birthday shout out to Sasha! Have the best birthday, can't wait to celebrate!)) The SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAIN SOL FESTIVAL kicks off in Felton on Saturday as well. The line-up is lookin' pretty hot with EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROS, G. LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE, STEVE KIMOCK, THIRD WORLD, and more! At the Boom Boom Room, KATDELIC + DJ KEVVY KEV are going to be throwing down a late night get down for us (**WIN TICKETS**)! Last, but not least, DANGERATE, the super rad instrumental Power Quintet consisting of five SF musicians between 14-16 years old! They will be blowing people away at Ocean Ale House...check it out!

Sunday is stacked with awesome events all over the place. Good luck figuring out where to go! At Concord Pavilion a sure crowd pleaser, HALL & OATES, TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE, and SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS! We also have the second day of the SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAIN SOL FESTIVAL featuring GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT/FUNKADELIC, SHEILA E., PIMPS OF JOYTIME, KATDELIC, & more! If you missed the SHAKEDOWN STREET FESTIVAL yesterday, Sunday is a perfect day to gather up your buds or the family and head over for some tunes! In case you didn't hear, the CALIFORNIA CONSCIOUS MUSIC FESTIVAL (CaliCon) has been postponed until 2017. All tickets will be refunded...and we will just have to wait a little longer for some Kool & the Gang!

My pick for the Monday blues would definitely be SAMMY HAGAR & FRIENDS featuring JOE SATRIANI, BOB WEIR, & VIC JOHNSON over at Sweetwater (SOLD OUT). This show will be a benefit for Kiddo Endowment, a program that helps Mill Valley students to reach their full potential.
THE MONKEES are doing their 50th Anniversary Tour and stopping by The Warfield on Tuesday for you daydream believers! The top BISS quick picks for Wednesday festivities are ST. PAUL AND THE BROKEN BONES + SERATONES at The Fox and the much anticipated, JANE'S ADDICTION +FISHBONE at The Masonic!

There ya have it guys! The BISS headquarters is totally back in action! Make sure to check the calendar and mark yours! And remember, "You're not doing it wrong, if no one knows what you're doing...".
