BISS List 01.31.18 PHIL, KARL, ROBERT & FRIENDS / KENDRA MORRIS / PRESERVATION HALL / KDTU / FISHBONE & CROOKED STUFF / VICTOR LITTLE / PETER MURPHY / ERIC MCFADDEN

Happy February! You know what that means? We're done celebrating and recovering from the holidays and the new year. Not to mention we are all (hopefully) recovered from the coughs, colds and flus! So NOW it's really time to kick off 2018. **
I don't really like to "declare" resolutions. They are like rules... and what are rules? ...Just waiting to be broken.
So, here comes February. Sober February? Healthy February? If I were going to try to eat healthier or work out more, it's easier to start in February, right?   No. Not just because it's shorter. It truly makes more sense. By the time you get to February, you have done all the toasting to the new year that you are gonna do.  Why set yourself up to fail?
If I were gonna "declare" a resolution, I think it would be "more hang time in 2018". And I might also resolve to get out for more shows in 2018. I am not the 3-5 show per night and 4-5 night a week Miss BISS I used to be... but with a little help from all of you on the BISS crew, we rep at all the best shows across the bay!
So get ready, set, & go!
If you are receiving this late on Tuesday night, then I was probably home finishing this newsletter and not at Phil Lesh & Friends featuring Karl Denson, Chris Gelbuda, Scott Metzger, John Molo, Robert Randolph & Barry Sless at Terrapin Crossroads.  So we don't get to hang tonight...
As luck would have it, they are doing it again Wednesday at Terrapin so I get a second chance tomorrow for Phil Lesh & Friends featuring Karl Denson, Chris Gelbuda, Scott Metzger, John Molo, Robert Randolph & Barry Sless.  It's sold out though so not sure I will be able to hang out with you there. #nohangtime
I would really like to see Kendra Morris tomorrow night at Brick and Mortar so we might be happy to stay in the city. There are tickets to be won for this show. Simply spread the word by sharing the link below.  Then email biss@bisslist.com to let us know where you shared.  Then we can totally hang out there. #hangtime
Thursday, if I had a ticket, I would be in attendance for the ENTIRE night of the SFJAZZ GALA 2018 HONORING PRESERVATION HALL at SF Jazz - Performances by Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Ellis Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Chucho Valdés, SFJAZZ Collective, Pedrito Martinez, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Daymé Arocena , Saul Williams, Airto Moreira, Ernán López-Nussa and more - AFTERPARTY featuring: GALACTIC, The Original Pinettes Brass Band at SF Jazz - Miner Auditorium
Tickets for the entire night range from $450 -$1200- $125, 000 /
AFTERPARTY ONLY TIX: $145 for Members / $170 for Public ($85 / $110 tax deductible) 
#steep
Friday, we have three reasons (at least) to cross the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin. If timing were on our side, we would start in Mill Valley at Sweetwater with The Crooked Stuff. Then we could run over to Terrapin for Karl Denson's tiny Universe. Then back to Sweetwater for Fishbone!
We have giveaways for that Fishbone and Crooked Stuff shows so if you enter to win, we could all hang out at Sweetwater! You know the drill. Spread the word and WIN TICKETS! #hangtime
Saturday, we know we are gonna end the night with VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT performs EARTH WIND & FIRE vs PRINCE at Boom Boom Room and you KNOW we can hang there LATE!  We are kinda hoping that Peter Murphy's Visa issue might get sorted out, so he can start his 17 show residency at the Chapel and maybe catch him performing "Deep" in its entirety that night. #Latenight #hangtime
Sunday, long time friend and BISS favorite, Eric McFadden is playing an acoustic show with his friends at Ivy Room. #morehangtime
