Weekly Ticket Giveaways

Every week we give away free tickets to shows in the Bay Area.  Look for Win Tickets text or button next to our concert listings.  Visit our Win Tickets Page for details on how to enter to win and to see the complete list of events with ticket giveaways.  You would be surprised at how many shows go without winners just because people think that they would never win. Why not try and see what happens!?

BEST of BISS and Featured Shows

You’ll want to pay special attention to our Best of BISS and Featured Shows which are carefully selected by our staff with impeccable music taste. These staff curated shows you will not want to miss.

Concert and Event Listings for Music You Care About

The BISS LIST selects only the best live music and events in the San Francisco Bay Area, personally recommended by our independent crew of die hard local must fans. We are the BEST resource in the Bay Area for the best in FUNK and JAM (and a little of everything else)!

Community Driven Event Submissions

BISS list is not an objective news source, but we do discriminate equally. If you would like us to post an event, please submit your event on our Event Submission Page at least two weeks prior to the event. If we approve of your event, we will do our best to list them correctly, but please be patient as we are a small operation and highly imperfect.

In just the past two years alone, the band has co-billed at Red Rocks, played halftime at Madison Square Garden, performed on Adult Swim’s FishCenter Live, celebrated the tenth anniversary of their beloved music festival, Domefest, and even earned their first headlining arena show. The Baltimore quartet’s latest album, ‘Presto,’ is their most sophisticated and joyful collection to date, drawing on everything from funk to rock to electronic music as it builds off the group’s unparalleled live energy and hits new heights of emotional and technical maturity. At a time when America seems to grow more divided by the day, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong still believes in the power of music to bring people together, and ‘Presto’ is a big, bold…
