BISS 12.28.17 : INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS & KELLER WILLIAMS / CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD / STS9 / KATDELIC / EXTRA ACTION MARCHING BAND / CA HONEYDROPS / CON BRIO / HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hope you're having a fantastic holiday season BISS Listers!  I've spent a good portion of the last couple of weeks out here on the East Coast. Man! It's cold here! I am writing this to you in the car as we drive from Atlanta to New Jersey for my sister's wedding on New JersEve. Congrats to Jaime and Chris!  

I'll probably be sending this out from our next stop in Richmond, VA. Kai & Shanks, thanks for letting us stay there. Can't wait to see you guys! Hope we make good time to you... (LOL). After NYE, we'll be in Atlantic City and then Manhattan with a day or two in Brooklyn before we head back to the bay.

As you might imagine, there are some pangs of FOMO as I write this NYE edition of BISS. But like I always say, or at least I try to tell myself, there is no such thing as FOMO, cause you are always right where you are supposed to be... But try writing a newsletter like BISS (while going 85 miles per hour) and having to go through the calendar of BISS shows personally selected by the BISS crew tor this coming weekend without a little FOMO kicking in. Then try to pick the "Best of" those shows from the 9 shows on Thursday, 15 on Friday, 19 shows on Saturday, and a whopping 31 shows on Sunday!

So here is my attempt to narrow it down to just the BEST OF (IMHO) for 12/28 thru 1/8...


BEST OF THE BISS
