Best of the BISS List 
By BISS Staff Writer: Casey Sol
Happy Tuesday everybody! First and foremost, we want to send out a huge Happy 50th Birthday to Mr. BISS, Bo Mahoney, mixing sound at front of house for all the best artists in that party in heaven! Bo is the reason I'm writing this newsletter - if it hadn't been for Bo and Pamela, my life here in the Bay would have been dramatically different. I'm so grateful for my time with Bo and thankful that through him I have developed a great friend in Pamela. So cheers to Bo! We are celebrating in your honor today!  

Maybe it's been the Super Moon or maybe it's just the seasons changing and the holidays approaching...but it seems like there is a lot of change in the air this month. Lot's of friends moving, exploring, changing jobs, cleansing their lifestyles, and what not. Whatever it might be, change is natural and necessary - embrace the change guys! Surrender to the flow!

Tonight, we have two awesome shows happening here in the Bay. The first, sweet and soulful, ERYKAH BADU, will be taking the stage at one of my favorite venues, The Warfield. Second, on the other side of the bridge, another soulful act with a bit of folk rock twisted in, AMOS LEE, at The Fox!

Tomorrow, Miss. BISS has a pair of tickets waiting to be won for the wildly creative guitar master, SCOTT PEMBERTON, at the Ivy Room (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Thursday comes at us with a little bit of every genre to choose from! SMOKEY THE GROOVE and MOJO GREEN will be getting the dance floor all funked up (**WIN TICKETS**). At Social Hall SF, THE MAIN SQUEEZE is coming in hot with some super funky soul and rock n' roll! I'm a big fan of The Main Squeeze - they're an incredible live band to check out if you haven't seen them before. Over at Slim's, we have California native, MATT COSTA! Great singer-songwriter for those of you who like the indie/folk rock tunes to sing along to! In the East Bay, MITCH WOODS & HIS ROCKET 88's will be at Ashkenaz and included in admission is some sweet & saucy swing lessons with Karen & Michael starting at 7pm (**WIN TICKETS**)! At the Great American, we have lot's of pickin' happening with FRONT COUNTRY + SWEETWATER STRING BAND + THE CROW AND THE CANYON!

Okay, deep breath, Friday is packed with awesome. First up, our friends, HOT BUTTERED RUM, are playing a really awesome benefit show for Bread & Roses at Delancey Street with JEFFREY HALFORD opening up (**WIN TICKETS**)! Bread & Roses is a really cool nonprofit that brings those in isolated communities, such as homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, mental health facilities, senior care facilities, detention centers, and more the opportunity to have healing through music. I know all our readers are music enthusiasts and I bet a lot of you know people who are in situations like these - you should totally check it out or come on our to the show on Friday and learn more about it while getting a good dose of HBR on the side! Also, everyone attending the benefit will receive an original poster to take home with them!

Also in the city, DANGERATE, the super funky power quintet made up of some awesome kids aged 12-14 are playing at Ocean Ale House!  If you missed SCOTT PEMBERTON on Wednesday, you can head over to The Boom Boom Room to catch him and his band with FUNK TREK too (**WIN TICKETS**)! Another super funk and soul group, THE SUFFERS, are going to be at The Chapel with opener, JAKUBI! Lot's happenin' guys, I told you to take a deep breath! We're not done yet! At The Independent we have THE STONE FOXES + HOT FLASH HEATWAVE bringing the heat for ya (**WIN TICKETS**)! Miss BISS also has a great giveaway for STONES THROW 20TH ANNIVERSARY w/ ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD (A Tribe Called Quest) at 1015 Folsom (**WIN TICKETS**)!

In the North Bay, at Sweetwater, we have two great bands playin' two great nights starting Friday, TOM HAMILTON'S AMERICAN BABIES and DOOBIE DECIBEL SYSTEM, bound to get everyone movin' (**WIN TICKETS**)! At Terrapin Crossroads, we have the first of two nights of the DAVID NELSON GET WELL HARVEST TOUR featuring VINCE HERMAN (Leftover Salmon), BARRY SLESS, MOOKIE, PETE SEARS, & JOHN MOLO! Sounds like a real good time to me!

In the East Bay we have another giveaway for ya, MYKAL ROSE (Black Uhuru) + REGGAE ANGELS will be over at Ashkenaz (**WIN TICKETS**)!

Saturday is loaded with great shows too...what do you expect living in the Bay!? At The Masonic there's an electronic jam dance party happenin' with STS9 (**WIN TICKETS**)! They will also be playing Sunday at The Fillmore but keep in mind that tickets for The Fillmore show will only be sold as a 2-day ticket with The Masonic show. One of my favorites, King Turd of Shit Mountain himself, STURGILL SIMPSON, will be at The Fox with opener, THE LONDON SOULS for the first of two nights! Up in Marin, we have RINGO STARR & HIS ALL STARR BAND at the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium too! OZOMATLI will be at The Fillmore and we have a pair of tickets for you if you're feeling lucky (**WIN TICKETS**)! Ozomatli will also be doing an earlier set, OZOKIDZ, for the little ones! At Slim's, you can go get down to JOHN BROWN'S BODY plus THRIVE for some progressive roots reggae fun! We also have some tickets to give away for NAIVE MELODIES + PROFESSOR JONES at Boom Boom Room (**WIN TICKETS**) and CONGO SANCHEZ over at Brick & Mortar (**WIN TICKETS**)! Whewww, there is a lot to get into this paragraph. I'm going to push on through... at Great American, a great rock band to get down to, THE RECORD COMPANY, plus MARCUS KING BAND, would be another great Saturday choice! As for Miss BISS, she will be attending The 10th Annual ARTUMNAL GATHERING: THE PROMETHEUS BALL at The Regency Ballroom! If you're going, don't forget to dress creative formal in Prometheus gold, reds, and fire! Also, be sure to bring something to gift in true Burning Man spirit!

On Sunday, you can catch the second night of STS9 or STURGILL SIMPSON...or catch gypsy punk band, GOGOL BORDELLO, with DJ DERBLASTER over at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz! Gogol Bordello did the soundtrack for one of my favorite movies, Wristcutters: A Love Story, plus the lead singer, Eugene Hutz, was a lead roll! Check it out sometime if you haven't seen it!

Monday, REST UP! On Tuesday, we have my FAVORITE band and discovery of this past year, HANDMADE MOMENTS, at the Boom Boom Room (**WIN TICKETS**)! We've been blessed to have Handmade Moments in California a lot this year - despite the terrible bus accident that nearly took their lives earlier this year. They will also be playing Jammin On Haight's PRANKSGIVING WEEKEND Black Fri-Dye Fashion Gala at The Regency next weekend before making their trek back towards Arkansas to start recording. If you haven't seen them - don't miss it. I'm serious!

As I just mentioned, PRANKSGIVING WEEKEND is right around the corner starring some of the most funktastic musicians in the biz. We have FOUNDATION OF FUNK featuring ZIGABOO MODELISTE, GEORGE PORTER JR., IVAN NEVILLE, TONY HALL, IAN NEVILLE, and MORE!!! Can I get a FUNK YEAH!? Tickets are selling fast, don't miss out! Miss BISS has a special discount code for all you awesome readers too! Use the code "SPARKLES" for 20% off your ticket! We will also have a pair of tickets to giveaway to the one person who promotes the show the most, so start sharing! Black Fri-Dye is seriously going to be the best one yet - we have, as I mentioned, HANDMADE MOMENTS opening up the VIP private show, followed by REED MATHIS & ELECTRIC BEETHOVEN with JAY LANE, TODD STOOPS, & CLAY WELCH, then the fashion show kicks off with the big boys!

Also, the BISS Holiday Cocktail Party is right around the corner with our guest STARtender, Elie, at The Fishbowl! Mark your calendars for December 7th from 7-11pm! Let BISS & Elie kick off the holiday season!

As always, or at least when I remember, here is a really corny good/bad joke for you to tell your mom...
Q: Why should you never use a dull pencil?
A: Because it's pointless.
