If you are only going one weekend, you might want to know who is playing on which day to help you decide which weekend to go. In that case check out: 
  
Speaking of NOLA and JazzFest, Anders Osborne is here in the Bay playing three nights (1.24, 1.25 & 1.26) with Phil Lesh & Friends at Terrapin Crossroads. The friends on this three-day run includes Jeff Chimenti, John Molo, Anders Osborne & John Scofield.
Tomorrow night, my pick of the night is DIRTY REVIVAL plus SAL'S GREENHOUSE plus MAMA'S SOUP at Cornerstone Berkeley .

Then Friday & Saturday are the Edwardian World's Faire & 18th Annual Edwardian Ball. It's one of my favorite local weekend events to participate in every year! What is it, you ask? 
"Nigh impossible to describe, but absolutely delightful to experience. The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author and illustrator Edward Gorey."

"Set in a re-imagined "Edwardian Era," this multi-city, multi-media extravaganza has grown over the past seventeen years from an underground club party into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, now operating with the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust."
If I wasn't going to the Edwardian World's Faire on Friday night, I would be heading over the GG Bridge to the Sweetwater for The New Orleans Suspects with special guest Eric McFadden.
Late night Friday, no doubt we will be at Boom Boom Room for WIL BLADES STARTING 5 plus JOE MARCINEK BAND.

Saturday night, I am excited to get down with BISS fave ERIC BOLIVAR & FRIENDS at Boom Boom Room. Plus ELEMENT BRASS BAND opens and DJ KEVVY KEV will keep us dancing before, during and after the sets.

Sunday, will probably be a day to rest and recover to be ready to go for next week. But if I get an itch to go out, it might just be a local trip to Boom Boom Room for ROTC.

Next Tuesday & Wednesday, Phil Lesh & Friends has another stellar lineup at Terrapin Crossroads . This time, the friends are featuring Karl Denson, Chris Gelbuda, Scott Metzger, John Molo, Robert Randolph & Barry Sless.

Tuesday is also the first night of Peter Murphy's 10 show run at Residency at The Chapel.
Wednesday, the amazing & talented Kendra Morris is at Brick & Mortar with Here Lies Man plus DJ heyLove.

As always, I have created a short list of the best shows from our calendar....

BISS LIST 01.18.18 : CROOKED STUFF / SMOKED OUT SOUL / GREEN LEAF RUSTLERS / RAILROAD EARTH / JOSH RITTER WITH NICKI BLUHM & DUSTBOWL REVIVAL / WOMEN'S MARCH SF

Hey BISS Listers! Are you ready to March this weekend? While we have tons of great music this weekend, don't miss this opportunity to support women's rights, human rights, civil rights, disability rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers rights, immigrant rights, reproductive, social and environmental justice. Rally at 12 PM- Civic Center and March at 2 PM

After the march, you can continue to show your support at various events throughout the Bay. The BISS List pick of those events is at Great Northern as Great Northern Presents: WE LOVE WOMEN - WOMEN'S MARCH AFTER PARTY featuring Rachel Torro, Mozhgan, Elz, Lily Ackerman, Smokes, DJ M3, Tobin Ellsworth, Ali Khalili, & Cole. 9pm. $10. All Proceeds to benefit Women's March Bay Area & The Global Women's Fund.

I know I am getting a little ahead of myself starting with all this talk about Saturday but it's clearly important enough to kick off this week's BISS. It's like our duty here in the SF Bay to stand up and be heard just because we can, more than most! Right?
Sooooo tonight, I am finally calling myself recovered from the East Coast flu sand getting out the house.... Just as soon as I finish up this BISS and hit that SEND button!  I am gonna hit up Monarch first for Smoked Out Soul with El Metate. Then I'm heading back to my hood for The Crooked Stuff with longtime friend MC Radio Active.
Friday night, if I can get out of the city, I am going to Sweetwater for Green Leaf Rustlers feat Chris Robinson, Barry Sless, Pete Sears, John Molo & Greg Loiacono. But you all know how I am with crossing bridges so it's possible I might just stay local and hit up Josh Ritter with Nicki Bluhm at The Fillmore...
Then again, maybe we'll hit up Josh Ritter on Saturday with Dustbowl Revival. Though I have really come to love Railroad Earth who is playing at The Warfield on Saturday night as well.
Those aren't the only shows I am considering this weekend in the Bay... Here are those shows from our calendar that I personally think (IMHO) are...

BISS LIST 01.11.18 :: CIRCLES AROUND THE SUN / SWITCH HITTERS FEAT. NIGEL HALL, ROBERT SPUT & NATE WERTH, & WIL BLADES / OZOMATLI

Whew! Finally, back here in the Bay BISS Listers! What a LONG strange trip is has been! Complete with friends, family and the coldest run of days below 32 degrees in NYC in something like FORTY years! Did you hear about it? They called it the "Winter Bomb Cyclone".  I am so glad to be back here in my city by the bay... even if I did fly right into a rain storm.  Not to say it's all that warm here in the bay right now but it's all relative, right? And now that I have had the chance to sit down and look at the upcoming musical calendar, I am starting to feel warm all over!
 
To kick off my return to SF, my very talented cousin, Mr. Mark Levy is in town playing drums with the very exceptional Neal Casal in his band called Circles Around The Sun tonight and tomorrow night at The Chapel. You might have caught Neal just last month at the Fillmore when he was here performing with Chris Robinson Brotherhood at The Fillmore. Hopefully, you also caught the BISS List Interview with Neal Casal from BISS List Contributing Editor, Josh Danson.

Friday night, after Circles around The Sun, no doubt, I will be at the Boom Boom Room for my dear friend Nigel Hall playing with a project called THE SWITCH HITTERS ft. NIGEL HALL [Lettuce], ROBERT SPUT & NATE WERTH [Snarky Puppy], & WIL BLADES [Dr Lonnie Smith] plus TIM MARCONETT GROUP plus DJ KOS(Fri)/Kevvy Kev(Sat). Lucky us! We have two nights to take it ALL in!
 
Saturday night, before we head into the Boom Boom Room, we will be stopping in at the Fillmore for Ozomatli. Not just because it's totally on the way, but because Ozo always puts on a fun show! When I say Ozo, you say Matli! Ozo...! For those of you with little ones, don't forget they always do an Ozo kids matinee show when they are in town.
 
I took some time to go through the next two weeks of shows that the BISS List crew has selected to include on our calendar of upcoming shows. I have painstakingly narrowed it down to this short list, which as you know, I refer to as...

THE BEST OF THE BISS
