BISS 05.25.16 : LIGHTENING IN A BOTTLE / THE CURE / BOTTLE ROCK / SF CARNAVAL / HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Best of the BISS List
By Staff Writer: Casey Sol

Hey BISS Listers! Happy Hump Day! We have plenty of great shows happening this week to gear us up for Memorial Day weekend fun, festivals, BBQ's, whatever it may be! So let's jump right in...

Some of you may be getting an early start on the holiday weekend and heading to LIGHTENING IN A BOTTLE. They have quite the lineup this year, including RUBBLEBUCKET, BIG GIGANTIC, CHET FAKER, and more! Be sure to catch LUCENT DOSSIER EXPERIENCE while you're out there too - they're one of my favorite performance groups out there. If you still have to put in another day at work, you can catch the always awesome, STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL, **WIN TICKETS** at Ashkenaz.

Rolling into Thursday we have, THE CURE & THE TWILIGHT SAD at Shoreline Amphitheater which should be a blast. Over at The Chapel we have PARTICLE **WIN TICKETS** which I've heard before described as "space-porn" which actually seems fitting. INSPECTOR GADJE will be playing at the Yerba Buena Gardens giving us a taste of Balkan style brass with 12 horns and 2 percussionists...that definitely seems like a party right there. At Doc's Lab, THE HIGHWAY POETS & SWEET PLOT **WIN TICKETS** take the stage. And last, but not least, we have the PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND with YOSVANY TERRY at Miner Auditorium for some Latin Jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythms.

BOTTLE ROCK starts up on Friday and runs through the entire weekend up in Napa. If you're looking to purchase just a day ticket, Friday's line-up includes STEVIE WONDER, LENNY KRAVITZ, MICHAEL FRANTI, BUDDY GUY, & more! If you've never seen GOGOL BORDELLO, Friday is your chance at The UC Theatre Taube Family. For the funk chasers, GRANT GREEN JR., BERNARD PURDIE, WIL BLADES, & PIGWAR **WIN TICKETS** will be at The Boom Boom Room! At Hotel Utah we have three eclectic groups, TRACORUM, FLIGHT OF RYAN, and twin sisters, CARMEN & CAMILLE **WIN TICKETS** to switch things up a bit.

Right into Saturday's dance parties, at Ashkenaz we have the INAUGURAL DIASPORA DINNER with MJ's BRASS BOPPERS and ANDREW CARRIERE'S ZYDECO/CAJUN ALLSTARS **WIN TICKETS** with dance lesson's starting at 7pm. Go over and get your New Orleans fix and learn some new moves! The hip-hop duo, MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS, will also be playing at Bill Graham Civic Center. If you're still thinking about BOTTLE ROCK, Saturday's lineup includes FLORENCE & THE MACHINE, DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, ZIGGY MARLEY, MONOPHONICS, MOONALICE, and more! Can't beat these headliners! Over in Petaluma, TALLEY UP!, the psychedelic funk and New Orleans inspired band, will be playing at Lagunitas Brewing. The SF Carnaval kicks off on Saturday with BAYONICS plus the Latin rock, afro-Caribbean all-star's, SOLTRON at the Elbo Room. If you misses GRANT GREEN JR., BERNARD PURDIE, and WIL BLADES last night at The Boom Boom Room, you have another chance Saturday! Can't beat a late night funk party. We also have some tickets to giveaway for Denver band, GREENER GROUNDS **WIN TICKETS** at the Ivy Room if you're looking for some fun jams.

The weekends not over yet! BOTTLE ROCK has yet another awesome day of music including the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, THE LUMINEERS, SHOVELS & ROPE, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA, and (if you missed him earlier in the week in The Bay) GOGOL BORDELLO. At the Great American Music Hall, there is BERNIE MAN: A BENEFIT CONCERT TO BELIEVE IN with GUITARMAGEDDON, JORDAN & THE RITUALS, and our favorite Phish cover band, CHUM. IVAN NEVILLE will be with the PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND at The Miner Auditorium. The classic American funk band, WAR, will be alongside LOS LONLEY BOYS on Sunday **WIN TICKETS** at Mountain Winery. I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to seeing a show at Mountain Winery this summer and we will have plenty of tickets to give away this summer! Keep your eyes on the prize! You can also head over to Tupelo if you missed TALLEY UP! yesterday.

A little sneak peak of the post-Memorial Day weekend parties, on Monday we have one man, two saxophones, RIC ALEXANDER **WIN TICKETS** spreading awareness for prostate cancer with his simultaneous saxophone performance you shouldn't miss! For some catchy sing-alongs head to the Great American Music Hall to see BRETT BENNEN with FIREKID. The week could really fly by with all these awesome acts so I'm just going to throw in that AFROMAN **WIN TICKETS** will be firing up at The Boom Boom Room!

Also, one of my favorite traveling bands, HANDMADE MOMENTS, were in a terrible accident this past week. If you caught their free Jammin' On the Bus show outside Jammin' on Haight a few weeks ago you know how talented, fun, and beautiful these folks are. Their solar powered, stage top, bus was destroyed and Joel has already undergone two surgeries on his badly crushed legs. They need all the prayers, thoughts, positivity, and well wishes they can get. Below is a link to their gofundme account to help with the costs of their injuries and living expenses while Joel is on the long road to recovery. Anything you can do helps! Thank you!!

BISS 05.19.16 : THE WHO/ SURE FIRE SOUL ENSEMBLE/ B-52'S / MONOPHONICS / TURKUAZ & THE NTH POWER / HAPPY BIRTHDAY WAVY!!

Best of the BISS List
By Staff Writer: Casey Sol

Hey BISS Listers! I had a great time out in the desert soaking up too much sun & sand at Joshua Tree Music Festival. If you didn't make it, be sure to check out the line-up and discover some really incredible bands from all over the planet! Those of you who participated in Bay to Breakers - that looked like quite the crazy party, way to go! Anyways, we have a ton of great shows happening all over this week, so if you're up for a little road trip, go ahead and pack up the car! If you're staying around The Bay, we have more than enough dance parties to get you excited!

On Wednesday, we went to one of my favorite Bay Area venues, Ashkenaz, to catch STU ALLEN & MARS HOTEL **WIN TICKETS** for a little mid-week dance party. 

If you're more in the mood for some good ole' fashion rock & roll tonight, Thursday, THE WHO with SLYDIGS will be playing over at the Oracle Arena. For something completely different, it's AFROBRAZILIAN NIGHT w/ AFROFUNK EXPERIENCE, ANTONIO GUEDES & THE BJILLAQUILES, BATALA SAN FRANCISCO, plus DJ CARIOCA and DJ GOYO at Rickshaw Stop for some straight up booty shakin' music.

On Friday, we have a couple easy destination shows for you get-away kids. NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE will be at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz and THE B-52'S with GREG KIHN BAND are playing at the beautiful, Mountain Winery, in Saratoga. However, we do have some really special shows right here at home. The international blues treasure and all around badass, TAJ MAHAL, will be playing his first of three nights at Yoshi's after just coming off a European tour. If you haven't seen Taj before, I totally suggest going to at least one of these nights! Over at Terrapin Crossroads, another not to miss show (if only we could be everywhere...), we have JOHN SCOFIELD with WIL BLADES & SCOTT AMENDOLA.

THE PRIMAVERA 4th ANNUAL GROOVE SESSIONS: "PROJECT WOO" starts off our Saturday party decisions with THE MONOPHONICS & MJ'S BRASS BOPPERS at Bottom of the Hill. At Neck of the Woods we have an all-day music festival, HIBBITY DIBBITY PRESENTS: 2ND ANNUAL BELLYMAN'S BALL, with $4 dollar Anchor Steam Draught all day! The Presidio Yacht Club will be hosting LUMANATION if you're feeling some high energy reggae beats. TURKUAZ & THE NTH POWER are back at Slim's to remind us of how awesome Jazz Fest was for those that went...or just give those who didn't a chance to pretend they were there. For the weekend road warriors - JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE with FRANCISCO FERNANDEZ will be in Saratoga at the Mountain Winery and one of our very own Bay Area favorites, MIDNIGHT NORTH, will be gracing the stage at The Crepe Place in Santa Cruz!  Don't forget the second of three nights at Yoshi's with TAJ MAHAL either!

On to Sunday! WAVY GRAVY'S 80TH BIRTHDAY BENEFIT FOR SEVA FOUNDATION will be held at the SOMO Village Event Center in Rohnert Park featuring YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND, STEVE EARLE, JOHN POPPER, NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE, DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS, THE T SISTERS, ACHILLES WHEEL, GRATEFUL BLUEGRASS BOYS, SAMBADROP MARCHING BAND, CLOWN CONSPIRACY AND SURPRISE GUESTS!  Sounds like quite the party to me! Back at Mountain Winery is the southern rock all-stars, LYNYRD SKYNYRD. Over in Petaluma, we have LEON RUSSELL, LEE GALLAGHER & THE HALLELUJAH at McNear's Mystic Theater. Last, but not least, you still have one more chance to catch TAJ MAHAL at Yoshi's, don't blow it!

As Monday rolls around and cloning yourself to be at all these great shows all week hasn't worked yet...there is still a chance to see the rock 'n' roll music legend LEON RUSSELL alongside RILEY ETHERRIDGE at Yoshi's!

Whewww, that's just a taste of the week! Read on for more ticket giveaways and upcoming shows!

While Miss BISS has been out of town the music has still been flowing...what an epic PRINCE tribute that KARL DENSON & HIS TINY UNIVERSE did with ZEIK MCCARTER crushing the Prince moves at the Fillmore last weekend!!!  THe past few days we have been getting down to VIOLENT FEMMES at the Fillmore as well.

Friday besides night two of the Joshua Music Festival & Steve Kimock check out HOT BUTTERED RUM at the Fillmore or LOS LOBOS at the UC Theatre in Berkley.

Saturday get up early and saunter down to Yerba Buena Gardens to check out a Free CON BRIO show at noon! Saturday night put on your best Meow ears and get ready to get funky with KATDELIC at The Boom Boom Room!

And maybe have oysters for Sunday brunch so you can think about NOLA all over again, but don't rest too much...CHARLES BRADLEY is at the Fillmore on Tuesday and Wednesday...and you know what that means...
