BISS List 11.14.17 : HAPPY BIRTHDAY BO + BLUES TRAVELER 30TH / OBJECT HEAVY / VINTAGE TROUBLE / GREYHOUNDS / TEDESCHI TRUCKS + HARD WORKING AMERICANS / MORNING 40 / DARK KABARET / MELVIN SEALS & JGB / JAZZ MAFIA / GN'R

Happy Birthday to Bo!! And Happy 30th Anniversary to Blues Traveler! If you read last week's BISS, or follow me or BISS List on Facebook you probably know what I am talking about. If not, here's the recap...

Tuesday & Wednesday are going to be a special celebration as longtime friends, Blues Traveler are playing at the Fillmore both nights. Happy 30th Anniversary BT! And as coincidence or kismet or whatever you want to call it would have it, Bo's birthday is on the 15th.  For those who don't know that story, here's the quick rundown... My late husband, Bo Mahoney, worked for Blues Traveler way back in the day (1989-2004).   Our first date was a Gov't Mule show at The Fillmore on 10/21/99.When Bo was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, BT played a benefit show for him at the Indy in 2013.  He passed away in December of 2015. Needless to say that any time Traveler is in town, it's a special occasion, but these two shows will be next level of special as you can probably imagine... Birthday party plans posted on FB
Tickets:
Happy Birthday Bo!
Still love you.
Still miss you.
Every.
Day.

And with that, I am gonna just leave you with this week's....

BISS 11.08.17 : JAY BLAKESBERG / REBIRTH BRASS BAND / NORTH BAY FIRE BENEFIT / ROBERT WALTER / JRAD / BLUES TRAVELER / VINTAGE TROUBLE / SMOKED OUT SOUL

Happy Hump Day BISS Listers! How's your week going so far? You ready for another good weekend of musical options all around the bay area?  Not sure that I will make it out tonight cause I really want to get this out to you today. Which means I am going to be working on projects for my other (new) job after this. But if I were going out tonight, I would probably be going to Deer Tick at The Independent.

Tomorrow, Thursday, I am going to kickoff the weekend with Jay Blakesberg's opening reception for the launch of his Photo Exhibit, Dark+Light: Rock & Roll Photography 1978-2017 (Runs 11/9-1/6). 

After Jay's opening tomorrow, I'm thinking about going to AT&T Park for Band Together Bay Area: A Benefit Concert for North Bay Fire Relief: Metallica, Dead & Company, Dave Matthews, G-Eazy, Raphael Saadiq, & Rancid.

Friday night, it's a no brainer when ROBERT WALTER'S 20th CONGRESS is playing the first of two nights at Boom Boom Room. Yeah, that's gonna be a good couple of nights at BBR! Plus EL METATE opens plus DJ KOS. I had also thought about Rebirth Brass Band plus DJ Mancub at Starline Social Club brought to you by HUSHconcerts, but it's SOLD OUT.

Hey Red Hot Mama!! Happy Birthday lady!
Saturday night, if I didn't have other plans to celebrate a 10 year wedding anniversary with friends, I would probably be hitting up JRad at The Fox, http://bit.ly/FoxOaklandEvents, followed by more Robert Walter's 20th Congress at Boom Boom Room (cause they always go late).  For those of you going to see Jackie Greene with special guest Anders Oborne at The Warfield, tell him I said Happy Birthday.

Sunday, my friend Paige Clem is playing a NorCal Fire Relief Fundraiser with John Craigie at Sweetwater Music Hall.

Monday, Mike Olmos hosts his weekly show, The Session at Club Deluxe

Tuesday & Wednesday are going to be a special celebration as longtime friends, Blues Traveler are playing at the Fillmore both nights. And as coincidence or kismet or whatever you want to call it would have it, Bo's birthday is on the 15th.  For those who don't know that story, here's the quick rundown... My late husband, Bo Mahoney, worked for Blues Traveler way back in the day (1989-2004).  When Bo was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, BT played a benefit show for him at the Indy in 2013.  He passed away in December of 2015. Needless to say that any time Traveler is in town, it's a special occasion, but these two shows will be next level of special as you can probably imagine... Birthday party plans TBD.
Happy Birthday Bo!
Still love you.
Still miss you.
Every.

BISS 11.02.17 : THANK U HANGTOWN! / THE SUGARMAN 3 / THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS / JOE MARCINEK, GEORGE PORTER, ALAN EVANS, & WIL BLADES / TREY ANASTASIO / ROOSEVELT COLLIER / MORRISSEY / OHIO PLAYERS / MINISTRY

Thank you Hangtown! I must start with that this week. Everything was absolutely incredible this past weekend in Placerville for the 7th annual Hangtown Music Festival from the artists to the staff to even the weather! Congrats to Adam, Ryan, Roy, Rebecca, & Dave on producing such an amazingly successful event!  I can't speak to any official numbers but it was certainly in the realm of almost (if not actually) double from last year. What I can speak to is to some of the reasons for such success. Mostly, they just know how to do it right! And huge portion of doing it right is having the right team in place. I know for myself, running the VIP SupernaturAll Experience, doing it right was largely in part to having an epic crew to make it happen. I can not thank my team enough for killing it as hard as they just did. But here goes... Thank you thank you thank you to Arya, Cassidy, Chris, Court, Liz, Heather, Jazzy, Jen, Jennie, Joe, Katie, Kelsey, Natasha, Tree, Wil, Spor, & Tracy for stepping it up yet again! Here we all are still happy and having a blast AFTER a 9am-Noon breakdown and load-out on Monday morning. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program!

I am gonna try something new this week... You can tell me what you think... I am keeping it more simple this week. I am just going to give you the best of the BISS picks for the next two weeks and let you know about some upcoming featured shows... To see the full BISS Calendar of hand picked shows throughout the Bay Area that we think you oughta know about, just go to the Google Calendar!!

I am also gonna switch up the ticket contests a bit here. Guess we will see who is actually paying attention!
