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.

LIVE + In-Person on August 7, 2021! at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds, Petaluma, CA Our goal is simple: “keeping music in the schools”.  We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The Petaluma Music Festival Board of Directors believe passionately in the positive influence of music in children’s lives.  Proceeds from this annual event will be distributed among Petaluma’s public elementary and secondary schools to provide funding for their music programs. Funding for the arts is problematic in California, as there is never enough funding for all our school’s needs. With your attendance, you are making a difference, and we applaud you! Featuring: The Motet, Monophonics, Full Moonalice, The Time Has Come Revue featuring The New Chamber Brothers and the T Sisters, T Sisters (separate set), Ron Artis II & The Truth, Lebo, Artist at Large, SambaDa, The Commonheart, Mestizo Beat, Sebastian Saint James & The Highway Poets, Bandjango Collectif featuring Stella Heath, Kendra McKinley, Black Sheep Brass Band, Dirty Red Barn, Jinx…
