BISS LIST 04.12.18: BONE DIGGERS / CROOKED STUFF / GOLDEN GATE WINGMEN / ROCK COLLECTION / REBIRTH BRASS BAND / SOUL REBELS //NXT WK: JAMIROQUAI / JUDAS PRIEST

Today was a rough one. It started with a funeral which was followed by a memorial reception. Truth be told that was in honor of one of the TWO people the music community and world lost this week. I just don't have too many words at the moment. So I will just say RIP Negmo and Fuck Charucki.

BISS 04.05.18 : DEVIL MAKES THREE / ANDERS OSBORNE / ZIGABOO MODELISTE / DELHI 2 DUBLIN + FIVE ALARM FUNK / BREEDERS //NXT WK: REBIRTH BRASS BAND

How's that Mercury in retrograde treating you, BISS Listers? Have things been weird? Does it seem like little gremlins have got into everything? Well, at BISS HQ, glitches are at an all-time pain in the ass tonight. So, in the interest of preserving my sanity and getting some sleep, I will just jump straight into this week's picks.
But, before I do that, I have two special treats that I wish to share with you regarding two shows this Saturday.
First, longtime friend of BISS and Grammy Lifetime Achievement winner, Zigaboo Modeliste is playing at Terrapin. In a small attempt to bring awareness to Gun Violence in Schools, he recently released a song called "Guns". Check it out: http://bit.ly/ZigsGuns. Please pass it on to share to help awareness of the Gun Violence all over the world! As you know, Zigaboo Modeliste was the drummer of the legendary funk group the Meters and the late Bernie Worrell of P-Funk. We just call him the King of the Funky Drums.
Wanna know more about Zig? Check out this interview by BISS List Contributing Editor Josh Danson:
http://bit.ly/BISSInterviewZigaboo
The other Saturday show I want to tell you about is Delhi 2 Dublin with Five Alarm Funk at the Fillmore. We're excited to get there early to be sure we catch For the Funk Of It returning favorite, Five Alarm Funk. We have an exclusive BISS interview with 5 Alarm Funk drummer Tayo Branston by For The Funk Of It festival founder, Bob Backstrom. Read it here: http://bit.ly/BISSInterviewTayoBranston

BISS 03.30.18 : BEN HARPER & CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE / G LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE / AMENDOLA VS BLADES VS SKERIK / GALACTIC + TURKUAZ / HAPPY PASSOVER / HAPPY EASTER / HAPPY APRIL FOOLS!

Happy Passover, Happy Easter and Happy April Fools BISS Listers! Looks like a good time to invoke the first (or is it the second) rule of BISS.... "There is no such thing as FOMO (aka Fear Of Missing Out)." THat means  I won't be missing out on all the shows this weekend. I will just be somewhere else, doing something else awesome. Especially when the somewhere else is an 18-year tradition of Passover Seder with friends (and my Matzah Ball Soup). That's on 2nd night which is Saturday night. Yes, I know! That means I will not be at Galactic and Turkuaz at The Warfield. #nosuchthingasfomo
Plans are still coming together for Friday night, but it always comes together so again, won't be out at Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite at The Fillmore or at G Love & Special Sauce at The Indy. You never know how long one of those Seders might go especially on a Friday... But if we aren't too drunk on wine, maybe we will make it to AMENDOLA vs BLADES vs SKERIK at Boom Boom Room for the late night.

We have a ton of requests to win a pair of tickets for the Saturday night show with Galactic plus Turkuaz at The Warfield. It's always hard to pick just one winner. We try to be fair with the winner selections here. We are looking for the efforts to spread the word about the show you want to win by sharing it. In turn, we spread the love around by looking for the best entries (shares, tags, frequency) and those who haven't won before or at least in a while. You all got a little more time to get those entries in tonight. We will be picking winners tomorrow morning by 11am.
You also have a second chance on Saturday to catch the second nights of Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite at The Fillmore or G Love & Special Sauce at The Indy. Then again, if you are like Spor, maybe you would be at Slim's for Prong (WIN)?
Geeez! With all that going on, it's almost a relief to have other plans so I don't have to choose!
Easter Sunday? Happy April Fool's Day! See y'all "there"!
And now for even more enjoyment... check out...

BISS 03.22.18 : FTFOI : SMOKEY THE GROOVE / UMPHREY'S MCGEE / DUMPSTAPHUNK / KATDELIC / MOON HOOCH / AFROLICIOUS / SONGS ABOUT SOMETHING // NXT WK: MATADOR! SOUL SOUNDS!

Are you making plans for the summer festivals yet BISS Listers? I am starting to think about them as I get ready to go out tonight for FOR THE FUNK OF IT presents SMOKEY THE GROOVE at Boom Boom Room. The 5th Annual For The Funk of It Music Festival is located in beautiful Belden, CA on the Feather River and takes place on August 10-12 2018. This year's line-up features Big Sam's Funky Nation, Five Alarm Funk, Mojo Green, The Nibblers, Idea Team, Smokey The Groove, El Matate, Brooker D and the Mellow Fellows, Funk Exchange, Jive Machine and More TBA!
But first I am heading to the Hemlock tonight for Stu Allen and Alex Jordan. Show starts at 8:30 so plenty of time to catch them and still make it to BBR for Smokey.
Friday, there 17 show options on the full BISS calendar. . . Even narrowing that list down to only the picks of the weeks, leaves us with NINE! I am weighing out the top three and trying to decide between Umphrey's McGee at The Fox; Soul Ska at Great American Music Hall; or Ghost Light featuring Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen, Scotty Zwang at Terrapin Crossroads...

Saturday, again, another 13 shows on the full BISS Calendar. TEN of those are in my picks of the week. And again I am torn. On the one hand Dumpstaphunk is at UC Theater (with tickets to be won!). On the other hand, I could catch the second night with Holly Bowling. Most likely, I will stick to the city and see long time fave Moon Hooch at Great American followed by LONGEST time favorite Ronkat Spearman's Katdelic!
If I make it out on Sunday, might be for Return of The Cypher... Lexy, you in? Then again, Afrolicious is playing at SF Jazz too.

MONDAY, MONDAY MONDAY! Monday brings an amazing super group to the known as Matador Soul Sounds featuring Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) and Alan Evans (Soulive) their fierce cuadrilla consists of keyboardist Chris Spies and bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring) as the band's "banderilleros". Adding a feminine energy to the band are Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson (Pimps of Joytime) on vocals at Great American Music Hall. ***YES! You CAN WIN TICKETS from BISS List! All ya gotta do to enter, is spread the word about the show by sharing this event with all your friends. Share it here on Facebook, share on Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat or all of the above. Be creative. Then email us to let us know when and where you've shared... Frequency and details count for bonus points!
To get you in the mood for this show, check out this BISS List interview with Eddie Roberts by Staff writer Arya Jha from February of 2016.
Next week has a lot going on and I think you are going to want to plan for it, so I have included all the way thru next Saturday in this week's...

BISS 03.15.18 : GREYBOY ALLSTARS+MIKE DILLON / ROGER DALTREY / ALO / DJ WILLIAMS' SHOTS FIRED / GEORGE CLINTON / BUDDY GUY // NXT WK: FOR THE FUNK OF IT PRESENTS SMOKEY THE GROOVE

Hey Bay Area Music Freaks! I am so excited about this upcoming show that I am gonna kick this week's BISS off telling you about it. Mark your calendar and do not miss it!! The line up alone should be enough to convince you! Matador Soul Sounds is playing at Great American Music Hall on Monday, 3/26. The band features Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) and Alan Evans(Soulive) their fierce cuadrilla consists of keyboardist Chris Spies and bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring) as the band's "banderilleros". Adding a feminine energy to the band are Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson(Pimps of Joytime) on vocals. 

***YES! You CAN WIN TICKETS from BISS List! All ya gotta do to enter, is spread the word about the show by sharing this event with all your friends. Share it here on Facebook, share on Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat or all of the above. Be creative. Then email us to let us know when and where you've shared... Frequency and details count for bonus points!
You already know most of what I am about to tell you for my musical plans of this week because I told you all about it last week (with a little help from my lovely assistant, Spor). By the end of this weekend, I have no doubt that I will probably see just about every one of you at one of these shows.
Tonight, Thursday, 3/15, won't disappoint! Approaching their 25th anniversary, The Greyboy Allstars kick off the first of two nights at Great American Music Hall. Expect a sea of thrilled dancing fans in this romantic old dance hall from 1907.  Mike Dillon Band will be opening both nights and his current lineup helps him explore the connection between New Orleans street beats, ska, funk, hardcore and jazz. Dillon will be touring in support of his latest release, Functioning Broke. (WIN).
Across the bay in Oakland, Roger Daltrey will be playing with members of The Who's touring band at the fabulous Fox Theater. The setlist promises to include The Who hits, rarities and solo hits. Show opener Leslie Mendelson was unwittingly adopted into the West Coast jam scene after Bob Weir heard her and recruited her to perform with her. This resulted in the two recording a duet of Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou".
On Friday, in case you missed it, night two of The Greyboy Allstars plus Mike Dillon Band will hit the stage at Great American Music Hall. This is a special tour and expect it to be packed!
Happy Birthday Lisa C!
Then, follow us over to the Boom Boom Room for DJ WILLIAMS' SHOTS FIRED (ft. mbrs of Greyboy Allstars//Karl Denson's Tiny Universe) plus BEN MISTERKA + COLLECTIVITY, DJ Kevvy Kev). What a lineup of the best of the best! (WIN)
Also, on Friday, ALO begins a two-day, three show stint at the Fillmore. This quartet of nearly two decades is on the heels of their new "Tangle of Time" album. Friday's show opens with "Modern day troubadour" John Craigie (WIN)
#wecandoitall
Another show not to be missed on Friday is DJ DIALS & 1015 FOLSOM PRESENT GEORGE CLINTON plus ODDISEE (LIVE) - THE SUPERPARTY AT 1015 FOLSOM WITH SPECIAL GUESTS!
Saturday continues the Fillmore stint for ALO. The 3pm matinee singalong for kids should be a blast for fans of all ages while their 9pm evening show will open with New York rock-fusion Tauk, another favorite of BISS!
Happy Birthday Jules!
With Sunday, comes one of the greatest live guitarist, Buddy Guy, who will be headlining at Luther Burbank Center For the Arts.
#nevermissasundayshow
However, I have just been informed that we have other plans for Sunday...
We are going to the East Bay for Mozart Requiem at Hofmann Theatre Presented by California Symphony @ 4:00pm
WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT? Two conductors take the podium at this concert as we welcome to the stage the San Francisco Conservatory Chorus, led by Ragnar Bohlin. The first half of the program features works selected by Bohlin, and the second half is a Mozart masterpiece, the Requiem for full orchestra and choir. Mozart died in 1791, leaving the requiem unfinished; it was completed the following year by Mozart's  colleague Franz Xaver Süssmayr.
Of course that's not all I want to tell you about we also have...
THE BEST OF THE BISS
