BISS LIST 12/6/17: BISS HOLIDAY PARTY / SONGS ABOUT SOMETHING / JIMMY HERRING / DEVON ALLMAN / REX BENEFIT / POLYRHYTHMICS & DIRTY REVIVAL / VICTOR LITTLE

Happy December BISS Listers! And with that, it is 100% Holiday Party time. That means that sometimes we might have to miss some music to spend time with our friends and family as hard as it may be to tear ourselves away from the music which somehow seems to be the best whenever we aren't able to be there. We must try to do our best to follow BISS Rule #1, "There is no such thing as FOMO".  The idea behind that is that while we might be feeling we are missing out, we must remind ourselves that we are right where we are supposed to be. Therefore, there is no such thing as "Fear Of Missing Out".
 
I hope that you will all find that the place you are supposed to be tonight is kicking off the holiday party season with BISS and Elie at The Fishbowl! We have had some great times at the Fishbowl over the past 8 years since this holiday party tradition started. It's totally casual. No gifts. No decorations. No muss. No Fuss. Just a few hours to socialize with all our BISS friends and let Elie pour us some good solid stiffies!

 
There are multiple parties and multiple shows every other day of this week and next, so I leave it up to you! If music is your choice, here are my picks for the best of this week!
