Many of you had the chance to catch just a glimpse of them at the Nat Keefe Carnival last weekend. The SHE'S are a four piece rock band from San Francisco, California. They formed in 2007 and began writing and performing around the Bay Area. Now, at 15 years old, the SHE'S have made not only a name for themselves in the local music scene, but also a distinct sound that can be best described as a fusion of Rock, Powerpop, Punk, and Indie, or "Simply SHE'S." The SHE'S are ready to rock and here to stay. "Rock and roll pay the toll!"

BISS SPONSORED EVENTS
• Running from Nov 19 through Dec 20th: The Global Film Initiative presents The Global Lens film series which can be seen in more than 35 locations across the United States and Canada and is impacting lives around the world.

"The Global Lens film series opens us to a larger world; a world where other realities, forces at large, values and survival instincts prevail. In this world, people triumph on a daily basis against the odds or deal with the grim truths of their world," Siegel said about the series. "Thanks to Global Lens, the world is smaller and our understanding of it is much larger."

The Night Before BISS List
by Dana Marinelli
Twas the night before BISS List, and everyone said,
oh where are the listings, I'm filling with dread.

The clean club clothes were hung by the chimney with care,
but what's the good show this weekend, who, when and where?

The hippies and groupies were snug in their beds,
while visions of free tickets danced in their heads.

The BISS list was typed, and ready to send,
but it appeared that the night of picking winners was not at it's end.

When out on Balboa St, there arose such a clatter,
Miss Biss jumped from her computer chair to see what was the matter.

Away to the door she flew like a flash,
moved the bong over and pushed back the stash.

The moon on the face of the street sign aglow,
Gave the luster of midday to the 31 in tow.

Then, what to her wondering eyes did appear,
but a tour bus smelling of Jack Daniels and Beer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
She knew in a second it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than Facebook statuses appear,
he recited the venues he's been to all year:

Red Devil and Yoshi's, the Warfield and Indy,
Slims, Pier 23, and BBR on Fillmore and Geary.

To the front of the line! To the front of the line!
I've won tickets from BISS List, it must be a sign!

And as bar patrons rush as last drink is called,
Santa Steve climbed on his tour bus in an attempt not to stall.

So straight out to Geary, the bus seemed to fly,
and headed after him towards the Fillmore, Miss Biss would try.

She was dressed all in fur, from her head to her toe,
with New Orleans Sparkley scarves, her guest list, and Bo.

A bundle of flyers she had thrown on her back,
but where were her cigarettes? She just opened a pack!

She spoke not a word but went straight to her work,
she must see 8 shows a night or the Biss List won't work.

Rock-star parking she found, on time for first set,
See you all late night at the Boom Boom Room, for out of work I can't get.

She sprang to the rope, gave the BISS Team a whistle,
the weekend is about to begin, yes fa-shizzle.

And I heard her exclaim as she danced out of sight,
Merry BissMAS to all, and to all a good night!

BISS 12.03.09 - Black Crowes, Kapakahi, Eric McFadden Trio, BISS Hip Hop Night at Pier 23

I hear the Black Crowes shows have been awesome this week. I hope to make it to at least one of those shows before the week is out. We had a blast last night at the Duane Allman tribute show at the Boom Boom Room! Even members of the Black Crowes sat in. But a few of us are paying for it today, aren't we?

So looks like another busy weekend starting tonight (Thurs) with: TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. @ Boom Boom Room, SHAKE WELL @ Eagle Tavern, Afrolicious, with Pleasuremaker and Senior Oz @ Elbo Room, The Grease Traps and BuildOn presents "A Holiday Benefit: Music For The Kids" @ The Independent, Less Than Jake, with Fishbone , Cage and The Swellers @ The Regency Ballroom, Taj Mahal Trio @ Yoshi's Oakland, JAZZ MAFIA PRESENTS: REALISTIC ORCHESTRA @ Yoshi's SF AND Turkish Neapolitan Project, GERARDO BALESTRIERI with members of THE FISHTANK ENSEMBLE @ Ashkenaz

Continuing on Friday night with more hard choices to make with:
BISS Hip Hop Night hosted by Germane (DJ ISM, Scojourners, Amy Serrata, Child Hood Almuni) @ Pier 23
The Black Crowes @ The Fillmore
Kapakahi @ The Rockit-Room
DRAGON SMOKE, Ronkat & KATDELIC @ The Independent,
Eric McFadden Trio and Sistas in the Pit @ Starry Plough
Taj Mahal Trio @ Yoshi's Oakland
Garrin Benfield @ Giordano Bros
RED ROOSTER (& NAUGHTY DONKEY) Boom Boom Room
Raw Deluxe @ Coda Jazz and Supper Club
Brazilian Night, FORRO BRAZUCA / SAMBA DE RAIZ @ Ashkenaz

Saturday I am thinking I should try to check out the Black Crowes though it's totally SOLD OUT so maybe Sunday? I will definitely go to see Tracorum @ Boom Boom Room for the late night. Is anyone going to see the Cranberries at The Regency? What about the other 5 shows on the BISS list for Saturday night? (scroll down to check it out)

For our East Coast BISS Listers who are looking for something to do in addition to Phish at MSG, check out this lineup for the Rock The Resort show at the Hudson Valley Resort: KRS-One, Lettuce, Melvin Seals & JGB, The Original Radioactive, Break Science (feat. Adam Deitch), Dumpstaphunk, Eric Krasno & Chapter 2, The Glitch Mob, Hot Day at the Zoo Roots of Creation, Rubblebucket, Rustic Overtones, Skerik, The Trapps, Trevor Hall, Tyrone Wells, Zach Deputy AND MORE... http://www.paperchaserproductions.com/tickets.htm

Remember to start your weekends out right every Friday night in December with BISS on Pier 23's heated & covered deck. Take in a beautiful view of the bay and dance to local jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, and hard rock. Come every week to get them all! JUST added: 4th Fridays every month 2010!!
