But wait there’s more… Still got Sunday to go… Can you hang? Yeah, you can do it!

For those who are not faint of heart there is always more music in the bay area…


Sunday night holds a bit of BISS selected variety that takes you across the board in options from Hip Hop to Punk Rock!


A local weekly favorite, RETURN OF THE CYPHER LIVE HIP HOP PARTY at Boom Boom Room will get you to Dance Yo Azz Of. This is a FREEEE SHOW!


There is also Stiff Little Fingers at Slim’s; Lana Del Rey at Greek Theatre; Mark Karan at Bar at Terrapin Crossroads [7:30 pm] and ; Ace of Cups at Sweetwater Music Hall with Wavy Gravy. You can’t go wrong with a film about THE first all-female psychedelic rock band!


Now I could continue on into the next week and the next and the next.


However, since we put all this effort into creating and launching the NEW and IMPROVED BISS LIST WEB SITE… I am going to send you there to see more.


So now go on over to www.bisslist.com and check it out. (Please?) I


f you find we are missing something, then go ahead and add the show on our Event Submission page! NOTE: We are STILL a totally biased musical news source and highly imperfect… We may have forgotten or maybe we didn’t…?
