BISS List 1.11.23: Spotlight on The Fillmore + Best of BISS this Week

Happy National Hot Toddy Day BISS Listers!

Yes. January 11th is National Hot Toddy Day. With the ongoing rain, wind, and floods we have been dealing with here in the bay, it seems like a drink with honey, lemon, hot water, and a cinnamon stick (with or without the alcohol) would be the perfect cure for what ails you. (I’ll take mine with whiskey please!)  Now curl up with your warm bevvie and check out what the music scene has in store for you.

This week, as I was looking ahead at the Best Of BISS, I noticed quite a few awesome shows on the horizon at The FillmoreRailroad Earth, Karl D, Lettuce (x2), Rubblebucket, Yo La Tengo (x2), Galactic w/ George Porter & Jon Cleary (x2) & ALO. That’s just to name a few. I will delve a little deeper into the best January shows at the Fillmore in this week’s Spotlight below.

Am I going too far ahead on the calendar for you? Are you just wanting to look at the next week of all the good stuff? Never fear, we have this week’s Best of BISS here for you as always.

Read on…
