BISS 04.22.15 - HAPPY EARTH DAY!/SMOKED OUT SOUL / CAT EMPIRE / POLISH AMBASSADOR / BAYONICS / DANGERATE!!

Happy Earth Day BISS Listers!  And to those of you headed to NOLA for Jazz Fest this week and next, Happy Jazz Fest!! I must admit, it's difficult to put together the NOLA special Edition every year when I can't be there!  But as the first rule of BISS says, there is no such thing as FOMO! So whether you are going or not going, please check out the Special Edition of the NOLA BISS List for JAZZ FEST 2015!!  

Huge thank you to Sarah Hamilton for all the help in putting the whole thing together and managing the NOLA BISS Street Team down there!  And thanks to everyone else who contributed their thoughts on shows, especially Sharon! The rest of you please rep for me hard!!

After all the time that went into the NOLA BISS, I am gonna keep the BAY AREA BISS short, sweet and to the point!!  One show, each night, every night through Sunday!

NOLA BISS - JAZZ FEST 2015 SPECIAL EDITION!!!


Welcome to the NOLA BISS JAZZ FEST 2015 Special Edition!!

This NOLA edition is entirely based on submissions from our crew, venues, promoters, friends, & artists... It's completely biased as you like it!!  BYSS!  Check out the calendar listings below and all the chances you have to win tickets to shows in NOLA this year!!!

I would love to get into where I will be at this year's Jazz Fest but due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be able to attend this year! But I KNOW that you will all be great representation for me and the others on BISS crew who wish we could be there!

To the rest of you who wish you could be there, remember the first rule of BISS List: There is no such thing as FOMO!!! (Fear of Missing Out)  You are just somewhere else doing something else at that moment! I made up this rule one year at Jazz Fest after going and going and going and finding myself asleep when I "should" have been at the Fairgrounds. Then I realized that there was so much to do and so many places to be at any one moment down there that I wasn't actually "missing" anything! #theresnosuchthingasfomo

  


HOW CAN YOU WIN TICKETS?? Well let me tell you....

1) Look for shows listed below that say *WIN TICKETS* next to them. Or if you are lucky enough to be reading the email version, just look at the shows in the left column under the heading *WIN TICKETS*.
2) Spread the word about the show you want to win. Be creative! Facebook, email, Twitter, shout from the roof tops, print it out and hang it on the wall, etc.
3) Email biss@bisslist.com with proof of your efforts and let us know!
*NOTE: The more shows you spread the word about, the better your chances are to win the one you request!!


********
Rep for the BISS Crew at all the Shows!
WHO DAT!!??
BISS DAT!

BISS 04.15.15 - HAPPY TAX DAY? / MARK SEXTON / VICTOR LITTLE / MOONALICE 420 PARTY / CONGRATS TO HUSHCONCERTS!

Happy Tax Day BISS Listers!  Yeah, I know "Happy" is kinda pushing it but I know I am at least happy it's over!  They say that nothing can be certain, except death and taxes. Well I am here to tell you, you can also be certain that BISS will lead you to the best live music in the Bay Area which will make you forget about all that other crap!


Tonight, we'll start early. Cause that last minute run to the Post Office by 5pm leaves me ready to get out of the house as soon as this letter is out to you!!


We'll start at Doc's Lab for the weekly Wednesday of JAZZ MAFIA PRESENTS, this week featuring THE HOGAN BROTHERS for FREE! From there, we head to Brick and Mortar to catch Humidors opening for MARK SEXTON BAND! **Congrats to Tony and Thanks to Britt!! Then we'll end our night with SOUL TRAIN REVIVAL featuring: ZIEK MCCARTER at Boom Boom Room **Congrats & Thanks to Phil!

Tomorrow, Thursday night, one of my local favorites, Victor Little with his band, VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT is at Boom Boom Room (*WIN!)! Though we know you will play later Vic, so we might swing by the Elbo Room on the way to catch AFROLICIOUS With DJ & Host PLEASUREMAKER plus Live Guests at Elbo Room (*WIN!)!!

Before we talk about Friday night, I want to give a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to HUSHconcerts (formerly SunsetSF and Silent Frisco) from everyone here at BISS and the entire crew!
