BISS 05.31.17 : SONGS ABOUT SOMETHING / HOT 8 BRASS / UNDERCOVER 'SGT. PEPPER'S / HUSHFEST OCEAN BEACH / DEAD & CO / EASY STAR ALL-STARS / LEFTOVER NELSON / VULFPECK / ROGER WATERS

Hello my patient BISS List supporters---I'm baaaack! Have you missed me? These past few weeks of hiatus were the longest break taken in 14 years of cultivating this newsletter, but I've been busy. Perhaps once you all check out the latest calendar updates on the BISS List website, all will be forgiven.

Back in the day, when BISS first started, I was creating the entire list myself. Over the past 15 years, BISS has expanded. The team has grown. The output has included more cities and more venues with more giveaways and more genres and.....Maybe too much?

Speaking of too much, NOLA Jazz Fest this year was a monster and without help from the fine folks of BISS (Sarah, Arya, Jeff, Phil & Cass---yes, I noticed!) we couldn't have listed over 200 shows (60 had ticket giveaways!) that BISS fans would want to know about. So, thanks! Also, helping out the cause was the inimitable BISS Street Team that helped to spread the word online and on-foot, canvassing the streets of New Orleans to build support for the music scene. There were many, but special shout-outs to Sarah, Paula, Arya, Sunny and Shady, Sean, Rina, Adam, Sharon, Rebecca, Nick & Diana, Paula, Paul, Jeff, and all the rest! My point is BISS was a tour de force on every front for Jazz Fest!

So, let's get local again! In the interest of continuing with the awesomeness, I have updated the calendar on the website so that you can find the best of the SF Bay's live music super easily on www.bisslist.com.  You'll find 350 shows from today thru the end of 2017... Check it every week for updates on more shows and more giveaways...

Seriously... Check this out!
