BISS 06.09.17 : THE SOILED DOVE / HIGH & MIGHTY BRASS / KATDELIC / MONOPHONICS / VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT / 40TH ANNUAL HAIGHT STREET FAIR!

Happy Friday BISS Listers!  This week in music is looking pretty awesome. Actually, this entire SUMMER in music, is looking awesome! If you don't believe me, check out the full calendar of our (385) hand selected shows that I know you want to know about: http://bit.ly/bisslistcalendar.


Since BISS at it's very core, is meant to showcase the best shows in the SF bay, it can often be a bit difficult to narrow that down to give you the "BEST OF THE BISS".  However, this week I am going to go further by telling you exactly where I plan to be...

Vau De Vire, Jazz Mafia, & Mighty Dave are back with The Soiled Dove on Friday & Saturday nights thru July 1st with 8 shows! It's an immersive, circus-infused dinner theater set in the reincarnation of SF's Barbary Coast red light district. An engaging evening filled with danger, decadence, world-renowned performance and a culinary extravaganza worthy of royalty. Guests are encouraged to submerge themselves in the revelry by putting a little (or a lot) of effort into their attire. Circus & theatrics by Vau de Vire. Interactive gourmet dinner by Work of Art. Music by Jazz Mafia/Realistic Orchestra. Under Italy's Tortona Big Top on The Point Alameda. Ages 21+. Fri. & Sat. June 9th to July 1st. www.TheSoiledDove.com

Tonight, I am heading to Brick and Mortar early to catch my old friend Colin Brown with his Trio opening up for the High & Mighty Brass Band Feat. another friend of mine, Kelly Finnigan (Monophonics) **WIN TICKETS**.  Then we'll keep the party going with a Late Night set of my friends in Katdelic at Boom Boom Room **WIN TICKETS**. I hear we are in for a treat with my friend Sasha Brown sitting in...

If I were gonna cross a bridge tonight, I would hit up either Chris Robinson's Hootenanny Heroes at Terrapin Crossroads; HENRY BUTLER at Yoshi's;  or Stu Allen & Mars Hotel **WIN TICKETS** at Ashkenaz.

I might actually cross a bridge on Saturday night, because I LOVE those Monophonics who are playing at 19 Broadway **WIN TICKETS**.  Then I'll probably end my Saturday night with VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT performing EARTH WIND & FIRE vs PRINCE (& Special Guests, DJ KEVVY KEV) **WIN TICKETS** at Boom Boom Room.

The 50th anniversary of The Summer of Love is being celebrated all over the city of San Francisco this year. What better way to celebrate, then in the neighborhood where it all began? Be sure to wear flowers in your hair and your best rainbows for The 40th Annual Haight Street Fair coming up this Sunday,  June 11th,  from 11 am to 5:30 pm! FREE at Haight Street: btw Masonic and Stanyan  
**Come see yours truly,  Miss BISS, MC'ing on the Summer of Love stage at Masonic!
